27 to 28

Yesterday I spent the day with Justin roaming around LA on an adventure. We went to Pinks, waited 45 mins for a vegan dog with guacamole on it (not that great), we also went to Amoeba and I picked out an album (Beirut!), we went to Santa Monica to have cheese and wine on the beach, and we came home and had THE BEST buffalo burgers. The festivities extend till tomorrow when we are having a little Sunday afternoon taco dinner with some friends - my birthday celebration of choice.

27 was a good year spent with friends and family - my favorites times. Here are some stand out moments (good and sad). I:
  • ...celebrated my birthday (last year) at the Largo (watkins family hour) with dear friends, jake & heidi
  • ...went camping with dear friends cam & al

  • ...went on an adventure trip to the clouded rain forest in Guatemala - still processing that trip

  • ...sat outside at the Buckhorn Lodge with friends watching and listening to a thunder storm
  • ...saw my friends play lots of music: Jamie, Jubilee Singers, Jeff Jacquay, Bodies of Water (you all are so amazing)
  • ...had a great time at a Korean day spa & maritime bar with jen, audrey & meredith
