    This week's NYT "Modern Love" column looks at straight marriage and the unexpectedly lovely impact R74 has had on the words "husband" and "wife." The author's my sister and she and I sometimes took the #43 to the Penney's in Ballard, so that'll be the Ballard connection. Labels of Married Life, in a New Light, by Margot Page.

    In a whole different vein, Margot also has a memoir coming out: Pura Vida: An American Family Fails to Become Perfect in the Mountains of Costa Rica is about a year in Central America with two parents and three kids (4, 9 and 12). If you're interested in family dynamics, family travel, or struggling with the joys and not-joys of being in a complicated world of rich and poor, then give it a look.
