I stepped out of the kitchen this week and ended up in sunny California with a few of my favorite beauties. The rays were warm and the life was chill. Why can’t every day be like a vacation in LA?
All four of us were first-timers, so naturally we became typical tourists. Hiked up through some of the most amazing homes I’ll ever see and ended up pretty close to this — The Sign, check.
Santa Monica beach fixed us with blue skies and warm sand.

We caught Venice beach right before sundown. We couldn’t get enough of the skate park.
Palm trees. Ocean. Skate bowl.
Travis checked something off his bucket list —
Paige snagged a local who shared his board, showed us around, and put a smile on all of our faces for the evening.
Kansas kids can use the subway too — we got the hang of things and it was fun. Next time we’ll be pros.
He likes me, I swear! ;)
I was probably looking forward to Chinatown the most. Although LA’s Chinatown gets bad rep and from what I hear it took over what used to be Little Italy (……), I was really excited to have my first Chinatown experience.
I got a jade buddha necklace on a red string and a sweet lucky cat keychain. It was a success, no doubt!
Check. Animal style — CHECK.
We ended our trip with the Griffith Observatory. City lights. Telescopes.
Don’t get too comfy without us, LA. We’ll be back!
