“Kate. KATE! You cannot expect me to pose for a holiday card without including my fourth child, all those logs I chopped this summer while you were on about that lumberjack thing.”

Fine. It’ll be rustic. We can make it a whole thing. Denim! Boots! Sweaters! Wood. Maybe some subtle hay?”


“EVERYONE will have a collared shirt on under their sweater. Charlotte’s can be one of those ruffly ones like they’ve got on your mother in this season of The Crown all the time.”


“I won’t! I would never cannibalize material from my newsletter like that.”

“The children will be markedly adorable.”


“We can put Charlotte in little boots!”

“This is going to be VERY cute.”

“The cutest. I’m so excited for everyone to see my logs! Make sure to send a copy to David Lynch!”
