It’s been a good week here in Pacifica. Just what I needed: a break; a rest; a time with people I love; a time with people who love me.
Not everything is captured in this blog, in the same way that a lot of the best things that happen to us cannot be retold but instead just become a part of us.
We went to Mitchell’s with our friend Andrew. There is a boy that works there who I think is the cutest boy in the world. He was there, and we were trying to read his name tag. Lauren stood on this bench for optimum viewing. Then he came and was stocking things right in front of her, by the window.
Emily and I went to Starbucks one day, but it was too busy… so we ended up in Denny’s, which is not where this picture is from. We walked past Payless on our way to the car and decided to go try shoes on. Then we each bought a pair of these lovely black velcro shoes. That’s a lie. They were UGLY.
I discovered that Rite Aid has an entire section of my beloved Taylor Swift cards – ones I had NEVER, EVER seen. I can’t believe I walked out without purchasing one. But don’t worry, I have plans to return and stock up. Have you seen the Taylor Swift cards? They are so lovely!
It was a terribly stormy day, so I went to Starbucks to redeem my free drink. The barista there helped me get an offensively expensive drink. Do you see that? $5.95, free! The first picture is what my cup looked like. I have no idea what it means, but I drank it!
My friend Nicole, from Portland! She just moved to Pacifica 3 weeks ago and now works at this Starbucks I frequent when I am here. Elijah once told me that I know someone everywhere I go – when things like this happen, I think about him. and then I miss him.
Lauren declared for the fourth or fifth time how much she likes my sunglasses. So I gave them to her. So I have officially given 2 things away this year. 9 more to go.
So I am happy, content & full of love right now.
