I'm back in NY but THANK YOU LA!!!! You were my biggest muse and backdrop to so many random artistic endeavors; everything from Lacey Spacecake to my surreal weather forecasts to the goofy drawings of Nick Cave crying in his mashed potatoes to these cookbooks. To return and celebrate the success of them was really moving. I have no words for how appreciative I am to the friends that shared this experience with me but thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. I had the best time.
