On Christmas day in the morning

   Everyone came over to our house on Christmas morning. It was chaotic and lovely. Theo kept on yelling "I'm freaking out!" while opening his presents. After breakfast, Jack and I took Eric out to the Mayflower Pub for the first time. The place was packed with Brits (apparently that's what you do on Christmas morning?). Later we went for a hike up at Old St. Hillary's in Tiburon. We completely forgot to plan a Christmas dinner and ended up going out for some awesome Indian food in Mill Valley. I was really worried that this Christmas would be tough for us without my dad around, but it ended up being alright. My dad didn't really like giving or receiving presents, but he did like cooking Christmas dinner. He would have laughed at us about the Indian food.


My mom is the coolest

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Today I wanted to share with you a few reasons why my mom is awesome:

1. She was born in Anchorage, Alaska.

2. She's Italian, Scottish and Native American.

3. She went to high school in New Delhi, India.

4. She's an accomplished painter, sculptor and photographer.

5. She was in 2 rock bands: Fallen Angels and The Liverettes.

6. She got her nose pierced way before it was cool. Everyone back in the States used to ask her what kind of "gimmick" she had on her face.

7. She is completely fearless. She'll get rid of gross scary spiders for me with her bare hands!

I love you and I hope you have a good day! 


Here is a picture of me. I don't really look like my mom, which is too bad because she's super pretty :)
