Pasta Pomodoro with Cari & Rory

Pasta Pomodoro is in San Jose California in the high-end outdoor mall called Santana Row.  They have really great pasta, and the bread and pesto they serve with your water is delicious!  I was so excited because we were meeting up with my friends Cari and Rory from Hood River that I haven’t seen in 5 years.  In that time they had Stella age 4 and Lily 6 months. It was really nice to meet the girls.  Cari and Rory own their own jewelry line named Jewelry by Cari.  Check it out! jewelry by cari
