When I was in college (in Portland), I spent my first Thanksgiving away from my family and had dinner with the family of one of my professors, David Needham.
It was a rainy night – it was Portland… what did I expect? My Thanksgiving were usually warm in SoCal.
And so it is today – 68 and nice. We are here in West LA in The Orlando
, just a couple of blocks from the Beverly Center
. This year will be the first time in over 20 years that my side of the family will be all together: Mom, Dad & Nana from Oxnard, Alison from Texas, Dawn, Maria, Mercer & Hudson
On tap: easy some tasty food today. Take a walk. Have some pie.
Tomorrow: Shopping at the Beverly Center as well as a walk to Mood
(which is just around the corner from my sister’s). If you watch Project Runway
, you know Mood. This season’s Project Runway is being filmed in LA and the Mood they use is the Mood on the corner of La Cienega and Pico. So this is a pilgrimage of sorts for us.
So Happy Thanksgiving one and all. Enjoy your pie!
