It's hard to post about anything right now, given the current events in Japan. My heart feels heavy, and I find myself depressed and feeling helpless, like there's nothing I can do in my little corner of the world. I know there are people suffering beyond comprehension and that it is only going to get worse before it gets better. I don't know what to do. My dad visited yesterday and Mitch and I took a little lunch date. We went to Chez Papa, a little French bistro we love and used to go to all the time, you know, pre Vivienne. As we sat there having mussels and wine I looked out the window and saw the SF Chronicle's front page: DEVASTATION. There I was eating my French cuisine, on a date with my love, while an entire nation is going through devastation. There is no way to process this juxtaposition.
I thought I'd post about little Izzy's birthday - she turned one and our friends Courtney and Ellen had her party today in Golden Gate Park. She's so pretty and grown up. Here is a little video of the birthday girl, of life and the possibilities it holds. Happy birthday Iz, we love you precious girl!
