LA Life

I know that I go on and on about how much I love California.. but I’ll spare you this time. Life just seems a bit lower key and easier when we’re in LA. Last weekend we spent a long weekend there and it was positively awesome. I got into town just in time on Thursday evening for a fun party with friends, and spent Friday working remotely. On Friday night Stefan and I enjoyed a yummy sushi dinner (just the two of us,) and spent Saturday day and evening catching up with close friends.  Sunday was spent (rather hungover,) shooting a few DIY projects and then flying home.  Pretty perfect if you ask me.  Here are a handful of my favorite photos from the trip.

      I know – it’s weird because I’m an East Coast girl through and through – but I just can’t get enough of CA!

    I like Stefan’s city-appropriate MLB garb. But I really want those tacos…on the asap.

    Awww sounds blissful! I still haven’t been to LA. Insane. This trip makes me think it’s reasonable to do it in a long weekend!

      Thanks Alyson. I still can’t believe you haven’t been. You’ve gotta get out there someday – it’s one of my favorite places! xx

    Mmmm that charcuterie plate looks insane! I’m really hankering for some time in LA. I don’t really have a reason to go though, so not sure when that will happen :). Did you used to live there? Hoping to see you at the next Biz in the City meetup- I’ll be sending an email with dates soon! xx
