today while the boys were brewing beer, meghan and i went down to venice and walked around abbot kinney. we ate at jin patisserie which is meghan’s favorite – they have great teas, cakes and delicious quiche. we visited just about every boutique on the street and checked out the bookstore and the organic herbal remedy shop (no i don’t have a prescription for medical marijuana, but thanks anyway?). i got a cute little cactus and a jade green pashmina and meghan got some extra cakes at jin for josh. considering all of the cute clothes, jewelry and that awesome paperie, i think we showed some pretty remarkable restraint.
