Pic of the Week
Mom loved her some carrot cake, so I got some of the best in town to celebrate her birthday. If you're ever in LA and need a good slice of cake - carrot or otherwise - can't recommend Susiecakes enough.
What's going on?
Happy Birthday Mom! I probably celebrated too much in her honor cuz I ate WAY too many treats. But whatever. You only live once, and as we say - Go big, or go home!
Also, Happy Pride month 🌈🌈🌈!!! It's lovely to have family and friends and community that all say, "Hey! We love you!" and don't have any caveats or asterisks or pre-requisites. Thanks for being my people. :)
This week it feels like the end of the pandemic has finally arrived - at least socially. I went to four different social gatherings in the last 7 days. Memorial Day BBQ, movie night, birthday party, and a back yard get-together. I'm thrilled to be seeing all of the people I love and hugging them and sharing food and laughter again, but after 4 different events, I'm a bit exhausted. 😂😂😂 Turns out socializing a lot after you haven't really socialized in a while takes a toll on you. Happy to be getting back in the groove though.
Also I bought a BUNCH of tickets to concerts at the Hollywood Bowl this summer. Bring on the events!
What I'm reading
Reading this one with one of my tutoring students. It's a cute story. My student thought it should have ended differently, so I assigned him to write the ending he would have liked to see. Like the evil genius I am.
What I'm puzzling
1,000 Colours. This is easier than it looks. And also it's beautiful.
