513. happy anniversary coffee

On June 30, 1979…that would be 32 years ago, for those without a calculator close by…I was in Bidwell Park in Chico, California, marrying Steve Barbaria. We were 21 and 23, and somehow we knew this was it. And it was…and still is.

513. edited for your enjoyment

Quinn Pendleton, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

“Taking a break from rehearsal for a cafe in the lovely Cabano restaurant in Cap d’Ail, the village just next to Monaco.”

Yup, Quinn and I have the same lives all righty. Except I take my break from work at Mishka’s, the cafe just next to the Varsity Theater. Lovely, as always from Miss Quinn.

Quinn dances with the Ballets de Monte Carlo and seems to find moments to enjoy (and photograph) her coffee. She blogs about her life that is just like mine, but really, really different,  here.
