Things I'll miss about Los Angeles

That last post was kinda sad. I don't want to give the impression that we've just been sitting in litter feeling sorry for ourselves these last 5 years, on the contrary, we've had some wonderful times. If it weren't for our time here we wouldn't have Kali (thank you Glendale Humane Society)...
and Bella (thank you East Valley Animal Shelter)...
and probably even McKenna...
This city has a lot to offer and practically every weekend we explored someplace new. This blog captured a lot of the good stuff, and these are the things that I'll miss...
Surrounding areas – the Pacific Ocean,
The mountains, even though they're dusty.
The L.A. Craft scene – especially those involved in Felt Club, Bazaar Bizarre, Patchwork, Craftmas, Swap-o-Rama-Rama and Holiday Cheer.
Hollywood estate sales and yard sales galore. All the stuff I found and turned into kokoleos.
Thrift stores – American Way on Magnolia, Veterans Thrift Store on Sonora, Goodwill on Hollywood and Sunset, The Family Store on Lankershim, Charity Thrift on Vanowen.
Good Mexican food - Fish tacos, De La Rosas, margaritas, “wagon wheels” (what are these called?) with chile and limon.
My church – St. Michael's All Angels in Studio City. I hadn't been to church in years, but this one reminded me why it's important – because there are nice people there, with kids that my kids now call friends, doing good things for the community. And there's coffee and doughnuts too.
And last, but not least - our friends, scattered across the city.

I hope we cross paths again.

This is sad. And it's even sadder that I only saw you once. I hope you enjoy this next step in life, but Los Angeles will always welcome you back with open arms - even if it's just for a visit.

Also, your dog is GIGANTIC!

I'm glad you came out to Felt Club that one time. Also glad to know some cool people are staying put in L.A. for a while. Yes, our dog is pretty big. We're hoping some Seattle hiking will help her lose weight, or as I like to call it, fluff.

best of luck and safe travels to your new home! it's a big wide world, and even though it can be stressful, it's lots of fun to share a new, far away home with the kiddies. ;D my kids love it here, and that reminds me that we made the right choice.
