I have had a really calm, happy week. This is the first week that I feel totally settled here. I have been doing "normal" things that I haven't really done in two years because I was back in forth between here and SF so much. I love just coming home and having my bud here with me and knowing we get to spend every weekend together. Last night we took a cooking class at Hipcooks in North Park and learned a lot. If you know me well at all, you know I can barely boil water. It was a great class where we made butternut squash risotto, goat cheese bruchetta and (my favorite) creme brulee. It was a great, interactive class and we had a lot of fun! I loved sitting down with everyone after and eating our creation. It was a perfect date night, but would also be fun with all your girlfriends too! They have a ton of different themes and cook meals around them that include all fresh ingredients and wine pairings to match.
I am meeting two friends that I haven't seen in years today for brunch. I love that about being home, life long friends that you are able to reconnect with. I am excited to laugh and chat about how far we've come in life and recount all the silly things we did in our early twenties. I am missing Sonoma something terrible, so I asked D if we could go wine tasting tomorrow in Julian. It doesn't even come close to the beautiful wineries I know and love in NorCal, but it will have to do until I can get up there in two weeks when I visit all my friends in SF!
I suppose I will just have to throw my bathing suit on and walk outside to the beach and enjoy this incredibly beautiful day. It's a rough life my friends. Have a happy weekend! xoxo
