rosemead, ca

4th of july weekend with the family.

doggie pile on aimee.


 

isabella looks just like grandma, auntie teo, aimee and me when we were little girls.


 

cousin suzanne was unable to make the trip,
but we all wanted to make sure she knew she was sorely missed.


 

would you like some carne asada suzanne che che?


 

we made our own fireworks in the street.


 

currently listening to:
when the seven of us cousins piled in the hotel room,
aimee, jaimee and i stayed up late, daydreaming about our weddings.
i told them mine would be small, outdoors, in the countryside,
by the lake, surrounded by flickering fireworks and fireflies.

and we’d all dance around in the moonlight.

everybody here is out of sight

suzanne gave me my new year’s resolution this past january:
“no self-sabotaging.”

but i have a lousy track record with boyfriend/girlfriend relationships
so it only makes sense that i avoid them.
at least for now.

but then josh sends me
a video of him playing the guitar, singing, “i’m going crazy without you”
and i get all mooshy inside and then i don’t know what to do.
 
currently listening to:

you got me where you want me, but i ain’t all there
