MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: APRIL 16–22, 2018! (VILLA, PINK’S HOTDOGS, MOM’S YEARBOOK)
A big work celebration at the start of the week, comedy with a side of hot dog, and a visit from Zach’s little brother. I also return to my alma mater, Chapman University, for the afternoon, and watch my little cousin’s play basketball.
Happy Monday—here’s Sufi on a pillow.
BCD soft tofu kit with Japanese veggies and gyoza for dinner. Yeah, still need to work on my puzzle.
Week two of my pottery class.
Trying to expand my hobbies and work away from the computer more often. Got a lot of help from the instructor but I’m proud of my plate!
Tea for me
Finally starting Mindhunter, this book (originally published in 1995) is by the pioneers of criminal profiling. His team interviewed the most horrific serial killers (before serial killers were even labeled as such) and tried to get into their mind to better assist law enforcement in catching them. There’s a Netflix show based on the book, if the name sounds familiar…
I apologize to my mom for this outfit, and for never ironing my pants.
Happy Tuesday! Today I get to go to the Villa.
The Villa officially reopens in its entirety today.
Taking a final few shots.
Herb garden looking lovely.
Little cousins made it to the promo posters!

Got ready and then went back to my room to put away some clothes and Tweedy was sitting on them.
Went to Women Crush Wednesdays at the Hollywood Improv with Mandy and Zeen.
For dinner? Trying Pink’s Hotdogs. A Los Angeles classic.

The sharing of sculptural styles, religions, materials and more.
Beyond the Nile: Egypt and the Classical World, you can read more about the show if you’re curious on the exhibition website.
I saw a photo of this hippo on the website but didn’t realize how huge it was! It was used in a garden. It’s a fountain!
Bust of Antinous, found in Hadrian’s Villa. Antinous tragically drowned in the Nile River, and Hadrian mourned the loss of his lover and companion by founding a city near the site of his death. He also established a cult in his honor.
We also went to see the Rembrandt/India exhibition.
Photography show about early photographic techniques.
Photography show about contemporary photographers addressing material in their process.
Been a while since going to the galleries, so it was a nice visit.

How many Snow pics is too many?
Mom’s yearbook from high school. Can you guess which is my mom and which is her twin?
I’ll leave you with this cute photo of my mom and her twin as song girls. Still not really sure what that means but she assured me it was different than a cheerleader.
Much love friends.
