Another spontaneous dinner, another solid memory. Anna, Shawna, and Joy joined me for dinner.

I asked portland’s best barista if he was participating in no shave November. He said that he was just trying to grow a beard. Apparently he has been teased a lot about it. I felt really bad.
At Coava. They are playing dashboard confessional for me. I can’t stop smiling.
Worst nap ever
You know a nap is bad when you’re dreaming that your nap is terrible. Little girl Frances fell asleep in her car seat.
