The Bright Side

I feel like my last few posts have, while very real, been rather depressing. While this trip home consisted of avoiding aftershocks and radiation, embracing doctor's appointments, a trip to the ER and countless hours in hospitals, their were definitely some fun times. Let's look on the bright side for a sec shall we?

My 6 week trip home to little Redondo was amazing. Shockingly very "LA". Mostly courtesy of my friends' super cool jobs. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here you go! Enjoy!

How I spent my time at home...

The taping was great, all VIP courtesy of super cool Claire and her nifty job, the guest was Tina Fey. She is currently pregnant and precious. Kiana and I had a GRAND time, THANKS CLAIRE!!!

  1. Kate,
    Nice pictures and good to know you had a fun time at home despite of your father's current condition.
    Hoping Japan's current situation will get better soon but reading through the media, it will take for some time. Take care and we miss you here. Looking forward to see your next update.
    Love, Mariko and family
