Commencement tomorrow and then on a plane the next morning! Not sure if I’m nervous or excited at this point. Also made the mistake of not bringing my list of things that I needed to pick up while I was out running errands and thus I’m still missing my Fresh concealer and numerous other essentials. Stopped at the Grove yesterday and had a delicious espresso and sesame date scone with my parents from my favorite Fairfax coffee stop, Shortcake. Well, Coffee Commissary comes in at a tie. I have coffee stops from East to West and North to South of my LA Downtown homebase, and I also have a tendency to map/form my first opinion of a new place based on their coffee/beverage options. Sydney was a win, San Francisco has Blue Bottle, my hometown of Princeton has Small World, and Auckland has some great coffee spots as well. Nothing like sitting down at a cozy cafe with an aromatic espresso to tease your senses.
