Today is my sister Alicja's birthday. I'm sad I can't join her in Chicago for the celebration. Last year, Alicja came to visit us here in LA for her birthday.
I tend to buy presents centered around a theme. One year I got my sis an Alias book, some spy gear and a CIA badge. Last year was Alice in Wonderland. In keeping with this theme, we had a tea party with yummy cherry tarts from La Brea Bakery. Thankfully the Mad Hatter declined his invitation.
Then we went bowling at Midtown Lanes. It was my first time in over a decade - and my sister's, too. Michael had the best form but also a lot of gutter balls.
I love this sign.
