The Weekly Digest

The digest is coming a little late today. Friday was full of meetings and to-dos (some fun, like a haircut!) And then Aron and I went to see Harlem 100 at The Mondavi Center with Mwenso & the Shakes. They mixed music and dance with a history of the Harlem Renaissance and were fantastic.

Then, this morning, everyone was out the door early for the Davis Turkey Trot. Hudson and Aron ran the 2-mile and Skyler ran (with her brother at her side) the 1-mile! I was there to cheerlead and document.

Aron is on call for the weekend, but it’s my hope to make it to the West Coast Craft fair in San Francisco. Fingers crossed!
