I just returned back from a trip to L.A. It was my first time visiting and I made sure to take it all in! I was out there for pleasure, a baby shower for one of my best friends.
I had some free time alone so I spent an afternoon getting lost at the Getty Villa, in Malibu. The museum is a recreation of an ancient Roman country house. It is surrounded by gardens, with a view of the pacific ocean in the background. The house has over 23 galleries with over 12,00 works of ancient art on view. It took my breath away.
I caught the sunset one evening in Santa Monica, another on the beach in Malibu. I hiked Runyon Cannon and watched the sun set over the city as the evening lights flickered on. I went to Disneyland and California Adventure, twice! I visited the La Brea tar pits, per request of my husband who has always wanted to see it! I visited the 1988 gallery and attended the opening night of the Postcards from Space show at the 8-bit gallery, which is owned by an old friend of mine. I walked Hollywood Blvd and found Walt Disney's star! I ate some of the best vegan food I have ever had at Sage and Mohawk Bend. The baby shower was, and it was absolutely perfect, a kind of shower that you would see pictures of on Pinterest and repin with the intention of recreating!
The best part of the week was getting to spend time with my two best friends, since we all live in different states, we don't get to see each other as often as I would like!
