My roommate has been cooking mung beans with curry and ginger and it smells exactly like my mom's kitchen which always makes me feel reminiscent of the season's changing and that internal shift that happens when you can really feel the holidays approaching. Summer is officially over - it lasts a little longer here in LA, but now it's definitely over. Summer 2009 was the driest (interpret that as you will) and most unromantic summer of my life. Thank god for Mike and Chris (not the clothing company) for being single this summer so we could hang like 'back in the day.' Looking forward to lounging around in my pajamas over the holidays.
