last sunday, i drove to la to spend much deserved time with my favorite red head, hope. it was truly a beautiful sunday. you know, that day when the skies are blue without a cloud in sight, only a light sweater is needed, and everyone seems to be smiling? yeah, us californians are spoiled. we first ventured to silver lake to eat at cafe stella; if you haven't tried their lemon ricotta pancakes, you clearly haven't lived. after we enjoyed silver lake, we went to venice and walked along the boardwalk. it was a beautiful california sunday that ended with dancing until sunset.
