laigrai such a lovely day exploring and indulging with @garyleematthews yesterday. we totally lived it up! field museum, acanto lunch, drinks at berkshire room, sable for the new cocktail menu, whistler, analogue for a snack, and a quick nightcap at best intentions. damn my friends really know how to put a day together! 🏽 2w

laigrai two amazing things- 1. the painted look of these macarons. last week I had one with edible metallic splatters (!!) and 2. dude called my name for my latte and I realized I did not tell him my name. blown away that they remembered me. but guess I shouldn't be since i'm here literally every week drinking 'cool but rude' lattes. although he said they remember everyone's name! as someone who works in service and has to meet people a few times before I remember... I'm impressed. 3w

laigrai when I tell people I set up still lives in my home to photograph and paint, I think they think I'm weird. I just think there's so much beauty in the every day. 1mon
