today me, andrea and hazel went to chinatown to get our aura's read and it was a really interesting experience.
you walk into the little store full of crystals and they take your photo for a small fee. after a short developing time, they walk you through the picture and what the different colors, brightnesses, and shapes mean in relationship to you and your life.
i've always been a fan of holidays, or rather, having an excuse to celebrate for any reason. but now that we have a little girl it's even more fun to find ways to make some days a little more special than others.
tonight chris and i are continuing our valentines day tradition of making crab rangoons and sushi from scratch, and drinking a little champagne (and this year some sake). we'll just keep the wasabi away from the baby.
last weekend i made a quick trip to austin for susannah and steve's wedding. i was bummed chris and hazel couldn't make the trek with me but it was good to have a weekend solo to catch up with a bunch of old friends who i haven't seen in way too long.
friends traveled from missouri, chicago, LA , and new york to come together to celebrate these two and it was a ton of fun.
highlights include non-stop dancing, meeting sissy spacek, a conga line, and the bride singing 'this is how we do it' (her go-to karaoke jam) for the crowd.
