Griffith Observatory

So glad that I got in one last trip to LA before my move to NY.  The day was spent the day drinking lots of coffee, dancing to La La Land songs (I'm in love with that movie) at the Griffith Observatory without a care in the world that other people were around, and having dinner at my favorite restaurant Commissary.  LA is a special place, I'll miss it.

Very Happy Holidays

The weather up in the bay area finally decided to get with the Winter season as we've finally had some rain and some very cold days.  Zachary and I decorated a bit at home for the holidays and spent a lot of time listening to Christmas music, watching Mad Men and playing piano.  I enjoyed wearing lots of red the last couple of weeks and coming home to the best scent courtesy of our Christmas tree.  I also feel very lucky that I got to spend Christmas with both Zach's family who I love and my family, it was wonderful.  Now, just one more visit left to Santa Barbara to see his family one last time and mine until I leave for New York in a few short weeks!!!

The Standard - DTLA

The Standard Hotels are my favorite.  I stayed at the Hollywood Standard Hotel back in August and loved everything about it.  Late November it was finally time to have a stay at the Downtown Los Angeles Standard Hotel and it did not disappoint.  After getting my fill of my favorite coffee in LA (Verve), we checked into the "humongous" room on the 11th floor and I spent at least 15 minutes saying "wow, wow, wow"!  We snapped some photos and then walked to the dtla Ace Hotel to have some drinks on their rooftop.  Then it was back to The Standard for dinner, drinks, and comfy time on their outdoor waterbeds.  We took some more photos by the pool the next day before checking out but it was way too cold to actually get it, oh well.
Oh yeah, and surprise, I'm blonde now!!!
