Billy and I traveled to the west coast last Thursday to spend a 4-day weekend in Los Angeles to celebrate his birthday. we spent time with his little sister who lives there, and had the chance to see several friends as well. we stayed in Santa Monica for the first two nights and Venice for the last two. I love both for different reasons!
my main man.
a long drive down the Pacific Coast Hwy with a stop at Billy’s favorite beach:
Mulholland Drive scenic lookout:
lots of LIFE in Los Angeles. simply put: I love it there.
our tiny rent car – a Fiat. so much fun to zip around town.
some dining highlights:
True Food Kitchen – I could eat here everyday!
Urth Caffé (Venice)
I recommend each of the restaurants that I linked to in this post – every meal we had was 100% fresh, delicious, and satisfying.
last stop for one of my favorite treats – the I Am Mighty Superfood Energy Bar from Café Gratitude – hemp seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, goji berries, coconut butter, cacao butter, cacao nibs, & vanilla beans dipped in chocolate. bad airplane photo, but you get the drift.
it was nice to escape the winter weather in NYC and spend time in sunny LA. I love so much about each of these cities, but LA is more of a longterm fit for us. as for now, we’re back in NYC and loving our life here in fabulous Manhattan. my focus for the end of winter/beginning of spring is to be as present as I possibly can everyday in every way. rather than getting ahead of myself with plans for the future, I’m going to dig in to right here, right now and make it count.
have you spent time in NYC? in LA? what do you love about these cities?
