Hi there. Hope that you aren’t too cold over there. What’s going on back east with the weather? If it makes you feel any better, it’s a little drizzly here, so no shorts and t-shirts like I wore a couple of weeks ago!

Honestly, I have been in a daze with reality not quite setting in until recently. I even kept the [HBS AND STANFORD] news quiet for a couple of days before telling my family. It wasn’t until I sat down and wrote that letter to you that I truly started believing it. Hope you enjoy the wine, already chilled… the east coast weather is quite the bonus!
Thank you again for all your help.
