Night Out

Last night was our friend Rishika's birthday dinner at a nice little Indian restaurant in West Hollywood. We took the motorcycle!! I had reservations about taking the motorcycle - mostly because we haven't finished our will. But, we did it anyway and it was glorious. Snaking through the canyons, smelling the eucalyptus, the wind blowing around us - feeling like we escaped the responsibilities of parenthood for a brief moment. You can see it on our faces, those smiles that broadcast our happiness. There have been other examples of it. Like when we went to Mexico for a wedding and the bridal couple thoughtfully arranged for a babysitter so we could have an evening out in San Miguel de Allende, just the two of us.
Do you see what I mean? Those smiles say so much. Yeah, that was fun.
Anyway, I seem to be getting off topic. Last night was great fun, visiting with friends we haven't seen in a while, enjoying great food and finishing off the evening with a cool ride through the canyons.

Happy Birthday Rishika! Thanks for giving us a reason to escape the valley, if only for a few hours.
