Food, Love, Birthdays

Today was one of those sleepy, overcast June days that we know so well this time of year in Laguna. The beach didn’t look all that enticing on account of the marine layer. But later in the evening my tribe gathered for a fun, festive dinner at Casa Cassill to celebrate Tatum’s 12th birthday and Tyler’s 15th. After that, David and I dropped in on David Burchi’s 41st. It was a June birthday trifecta. The day started out kind of blah and ended with a bang. It would have been a crime to not indulge in pizza and homemade cupcakes and some good wine. So I did, and it was very good!

In the spirit of food, love and birthdays, a few favorite quotes and of course a little poetry:

You better cut the pizza into four slices, because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.

—Yogi Berra

Birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake.

—M.F.K. Fisher

kids, big and little

cupcakes and birthday candles

June gloom disappears
