Happy Monday! / Instax from last night in Chinatown. My sister’s last dinner in LA

My sister was in town over the weekend for my birthday. We ended up going to Umami Burger for lunch! I was so excited to finally try their burgers after hearing so much about it. I ordered sweet potato fries with a burger and a coffee–everything was really yummy.

After lunch we shopped on 3rd street in Santa Monica and drove along the coast, stopping at a little beach for a few hours. It was nice and relaxing, I don’t think my birthday could’ve gone any better. We ate in Malibu, he had drinks and I just had a bottle of water from, then went home exhausted.

I have a few rolls to develop tomorrow. Hopefully will get them back soon. : )
