The Hood

My location for the summer is perfect-- next to a park (where things like hipsters vs. hippies water fights break out), 2 blocks from the best food ever, close to people I love, and somewhere where I magically bump into people all the time. Summer 2011 is magical!

Sharing the love

So, I bought a few containers at the grocery, and made a paper funnel and...
voila! Hot chocolate for two *
*hopefully you'll still appreciate them even after I've destroyed the mystery with this post.
