Today I woke up in a silly hotel in Kevin’s jeans because I forgot my pjs, went to brunch with my good friends, sat outside on a sunny February San Francisco day, bought a new house plant, drank Sofia Coppola sparkling wine with strawberries, caught up on some blogs, took a nap, got a pedicure, finished a book, made some jewelry, took a trip to Whole Foods to get dinner ingredients, made dinner with Kevin, took a salt and lavender bath while listening to Rumours, watched GIRLS, and finished the night watching old David Cross stand-up. Now I’m going to go to sleep and reflect on how loved I felt today, and how grateful I am that my 25th is going to be the best year of my life.
