i’m not sure its a lesson but her kindness, lack of judgement and the ability to make my kids laugh off their tears and frustration sets a high bar.

christmas at my aunts in the pacific palisades. my mum also flies in from london and we have a traditional english christmas dinner with all the trimmings but with the californian sun.
