Afar ~ Love from Los Angeles, USA to Sydney, Australia

Although my dad lives in Sydney and won’t be toasting American Father’s Day tomorrow, June 16, it is still a day of celebration as it happens to be his birthday.

Across the miles in Los Angeles, we treated ourselves with a couple of sweets in dad’s honour from Georgetown Cupcakes on Robertson Blvd* – a chi chi street that rivals Melrose but is less dangerous on the wallet than Rodeo. Think: Lululemon versus Louis Vuitton. It’s also the location of Aussie boutique, Zimmermann and the paparazzi magnet, The Ivy.

Anyway, I am getting sidetracked…

Happy Birthday to the most generous father, and one of the greatest men I know. You are missed daily, and thankfully only a phone call away.

*Technically, we celebrated in the afternoon of June 15 US time, which made it the morning of June 16 Australia time.

Jacarandas remind me of Sydney. Right now, they are in full bloom across LA.

Cupcakes gone... bellies full of sweetness. Happy Birthday!
