Let’s celebrate

Cover art for a mixed CD

This weekend is all about celebrations. My friends Seth & Stella are renewing wedding vows made last fall, my grandma turns 88 years old and Rama and I look back with gratitude and awe at our first year together. There will be lots of cake and ice cream, hugs and high-fives. And I’m going to Disneyland!

What are you going to celebrate this weekend?
