Today I had lunch with my friend Andrea, and she surprised me with this gorgeous cheesecake adorned with chocolate shaving curls and chocolate covered strawberries. It was truly a sweet gesture and a yummy treat. (The cake came from Alsace Lorraine Bakery in Long Beach. I'm definitely going to check that place out.)
This was kind of a rough week, and from what I've heard from others, not just for me. Next week, on the other hand, has a lot of potential to be a fine week. I work Monday and Tuesday all day; Wednesday, I work half a day. Then I'm going home for a massage and to pack and get ready for a trip Patrick and I are taking to Portland. I'm kind of doing a weird thing, which I never do, right now, and that is... looking ahead. I'm really glad it's almost March. I have a lot going on, and I just want to make sure I can handle it all, and get it over with. Though that's not to say I'm not looking forward to some of it. Just: a lot to do and think about!
