Days of Heaven – Los Angeles Winter 2016
Every day being back in Los Angeles has been every bit as dreamy as I expected it to be.
Langdon, Clementine + I have been entirely enjoying ourselves every single day + are making the most of it. Of course, the first week of our arrival we headed straight to Zuma Beach to take holiday photos. What a joke! Big props to baby photographers, because getting two kids look at the camera at the same time is nothing short of a miracle. Example one:
Langdon looks like a model running down the dunes, meanwhile Clementine….HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!
Baby toes + sand = irresistible!!!! Aaaah it was so awesome to be back on a beach with miles of fluffy sand, crashing waves + an endless horizon!!! How I’ve missed it!
Lang + I visited Travel Town for the first time. But before we did, we hung out at hipster Los Feliz on Vermont Ave. It was so weird + cool to show him all the same places I used to hang out at when I was young. I can’t wait to share more of these experiences with my kids as they get older.
And basically since we’ve been in Southern California Langdon + I get outside + run around in the wide open desert landscape like crazy people. Because that’s what wide open spaces does to a person. Makes you want to break out in a run!
She is a fantabulously, amazingly easygoing happy baby. I am so lucky because Langdon runs me ragged most days.
I am so grateful to be back in California + I don’t take a moment of it for granted. When I open my eyes + see the blue sky, the palm trees + feel the desert gravel crunching under my feet, I am thankful. Spending time with family + old friends has revived my weary soul. I didn’t realize how much I would miss California + how much it means to me until I moved away. The Pacific Northwest is beautiful + quality of life is pretty darn good. But I do not love it. I LOVE Southern California, it is a part of me that will never die. NEVER!!!! I could go on, but I can’t even get into it right now + it’s too complicated.
Ok stay tuned for more Southern Cali love + antics from a house that is now full to the brim with babies!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAY!!!!
