it's finally sunny and warm in southern california today! hooray!

our summers don't usually start 'til july here.

it's the payback for having brilliant weather all year round.

i woke up late today and made a trip to the post office to mail cara the puzzle we just finished.

she had the amazing idea to do a puzzle swap! i love mail, so i was completely on board!

i hope you and jonah like the puzzle, cara!

and right now i am enjoying a cupcake and a coca-cola in honor of nie nie's birthday today.

a little cupcake shop in utah is donating their proceeds today from the sales of their vaNIElla squared cupcake. since i don't live in utah, i grabbed a cupcake from my local cupcakery and made a small donation to the stephanie nielson fund. i encourage you all to do the same! and if you haven't read the nie nie dialogues, i encourage you to start now!

happy birthday, nie nie! i hope it's the best birthday you've had in all your 28 years. you truly deserve it.
