It has been a long, fun, hot summer... with few posts.  We had a couple more trips away, to Maine, upstate, Cape Cod, and were lucky enough to get to end the summer in the sunniest of places, Los Angeles.

It is official: I love LA.  I like the weather, the architecture, the landscape, the food, the proximity to family, even the driving.  While I hatch my plan to get back to California, from whence I came, enjoy the highlights of my week of in our future place of residence:

First of all, Joans on Third is reason enough to want to move.  Above, the cheese counter.  This is where I would eat lunch every day if I lived out there.

Second: the Santa Monica Farmer's Market.  It makes the Union Square market look like a supermarket in 1970's Stalingrad.

Third, and most important... proximity to my family.  I spent a couple days down in San Clemente as well.


  1. gorgeous----almost as gorgeous (and tan!) as your new LA neighbors, and by neighbors I mean roommates. Your pictures just solidified
    my l-o-v-e for all things L-A.

  2. Beautiful photos, Chad. They make me miss Southern California even more. I never heard of the Nor Cal/So Cal rivalry until I moved to SF. There's a reason we never heard of it down South:)

  3. Awesome collection and all of these pictures are so beautiful.
