A Day at the Depot

Recently one of my good good friends Jamie just got back from an exchange in Argentina! She has been gone for five months, and since she's been back we've seen each other quite a few times. The other day we spent time in a cute little town called Mill Valley. First we visited a cafe called the Depot- I was so afraid to do this! It's very popular here, but I went on Yelp and was horrified by the reviews. Complaints of sub par food and rubbish service almost frightened me away. However I was pleasantly surprised- I'd highly recommend their strawberry rhubarb pie. You can see me eating that below (don't mind my super model faces, I just can't help it.) Strawberry rhubarb is one of my FAVORITE pies.

                                 
                          

We spent some time laying in the sun, and I traced her in chalk.


It was such a nice afternoon in comparison to the morning which had been drizzly and cold. Then we caught a showing of Begin Again, which was pretty good. I really liked the whole idea behind the album they made, it inspired me a lot! I might break out my guitar heheh. Lots of people are loving the music but it didn't steal my heart. I loved the costuming and set on this film though. Overall I think it was worth seeing- but maybe rent it.



Well who looks like a rabid dog? ME!

Then we went to In n Out and ate it in a park! It was her first time eating In n Out in five months- she was clearly in withdrawal. I think I enjoyed it more than usual too haha. We got it to go and ate at a lovely park by the water. It was freezing, but really beautiful. While we were there a stray yoga ball was rolling down the sidewalk and I ran to get it (come on it was my lucky day! a free yoga ball?!) but unfortunately it's owners were very happy to have it back (...I guess I'll settle for being a good Samaritan.)


It was such a nice day, with the weather as lovely as it was and the food as lovely as it was. I really enjoy Jamie's company and am SO excited she's back! I'm so grateful everyday for the wonderful people I'm surround by and the wonderful places I get to go. See you guys next time!
