i drove down to LAX wednesday night because i had to fly out at 6am thursday morning for allume.  this was my bed at the hotel.  yes, so very generous to give me 5 pillows.  but… they were tiny!  so weird.

now i’m at allume and i got some good time with maggie – so fun!  i’m exhausted from little sleep and lots of travel, so i’m being antisocial and already in bed (its only 7pm at home).
