I was in LA over Memorial Day weekend – soaking up the sun (and food and booze and fun) with my best girlfriends. And even though it was my first real trip away from my sweet, little family, and I missed them both so desperately, it was much-needed and appreciated, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I will say though, that flying on your own is COMPLETELY different when you NEED to get home. Like, when a person’s entire life would take on a heavy sadness if you didn’t make it back. That’s intense. Parenthood, you guys.
Wee! Welcome to my blog!
Everything was fine, of course, and I am so much more clear-headed after the break. And soft from all of the food. Restaurant recs:
Mozza (this was our second time – and it was just as incredible as the first visit)
Hinoki & the Bird (amazing)
Gjelina (in Venice – also amazing)
While I was there, I also stopped in to visit Maria Diaz, owner of the completely charming Bride boutique in the Echo Park neighborhood. I took along a couple of gowns to show her all of the fancy little details, because …
… she’s hosting a trunk show starting this weekend! You do NOT want to miss this event. I know, because I get emails and tweets from you gorgeous LA girls on the regular, and I know Chicago is a very long trip for you. Because of that, we’re doing an extra long event – two whole weeks! May 31 – June 15. Be sure to book your appointment right away! Not only will you get to see the gowns in person, and check out all of the laces and bows on the INSIDE of the gowns, but you’ll also get to hang out with Maria, who is really so easy and sweet – you will have the best time.
And send me some Instagram pics or something! I miss LA so much – I’ll have to live vicariously through you.
