Calication.

Ever simply fall head over heels in love with a place? Well, it happened. I fell in love with Los Angeles (and it reminded me SO much of our Morocco). I love quite a few places for very different reasons, but this is one I did not expect. All my preconceived notions had led me to believe that I might enjoy L.A. and all it offers, but by no means would I fall in love. Where these "feelings" come from, I have yet to know, but experiences like these make me think I might need to chuck them out the window before touching ground. On the contrary, Zach and I thought we would love San Diego. And it was gorgeous. Beautiful, really. Clean. With wonderful food. But maybe it was the chill in the air, or the quiet calm in the atmosphere...it's like it just didn't take completely. That being said, it's a lovely place and would be great for a relaxing vacation.

At the La Brea Tar Pits and LACMA.
Dinner at Rosti in Santa Monica
I loved these couches in Santa Monica...this place was also right next to a Shabby Chic store!
The Iron Man 2 premiere in Hollywood...this is where we saw Gwyneth Paltrow among others...
Adrian Brody at the premiere.
Griffith Observatory.
A cloudy view of the hills.
Can't leave without a photo of the Hollywood sign!
The beach in San Diego.
A view of the city from our hotel room.
Bike Ride on Coronado Island.
Shortly after this photo I ran into the brush. And shortly after that I almost hit a car. It was awesome!
The Coronado Hotel.

The premiere was definitely one of the highlights and so entertaining, especially since we just stumbled upon it. Oh, and driving up Muholland Drive at night. Aaaand, we may or may not have stalked a few celeb homes in the cover of night. And we ate a lot, a lot of tacos (I would love to have some mole tacos right now). Also, we were able to visit The Reform School (I'll post more on that). So, overall...a wonderful vacation and so fun to be able to spend time together.
