White Chocolate Mocha
It was just Nathan, Jared and I at home and Jared brought me a White Chocolate Mocha from Los Gatos Roasting Company. Paradise in a cup…

Jared was given two free tickets to the San Jose Symphony by his violin teacher, Susan Stein (who plays violin in the symphony). He and I went to see the show, in the California Theater in Downtown San Jose.
