can't get enough
Mama's backyard. So many trees.

I got in last Monday, and Matt joined me on Thursday (which was my birthday, in fact). We had a low-key night in with some good friends and my favorite pizza ever. Usually I am all about birthday festivities, but with all that was going on this year, a mellow night at my mama's was perfect. And it was Matt's first time meeting her. :)

The funeral was on Saturday, and it was just as my grandma would have wanted it: Catholic and full of family. My dad played guitar, my aunt sang Amazing Grace, and we all remembered what a dear woman she was. My goodness, we will miss her.
Being the fans of irony and juxtaposition that we are, Matt and I headed to a comedy club on Saturday night. Seemed like a good way to shake off the funeral blues, and we had free tickets thanks to a friend. We saw Tommy Blaze and he was hilarious. Especially when he picked on the couple behind us who were awkwardly navigating their way through their second date.
I always love spending time with my enormous nephew
And so it's back to California today. I'm actually really looking forward to getting back to work, which is a mighty pleasant feeling, I must say.
