Looking Westward

Thanksgiving is over; The leftovers have been eaten, the wishbone has been cracked, and the more adventurous of us have braved the crowds of Black Friday bargain seekers. With this major holiday behind us, we’re officially free to begin looking forward to what we’ve been waiting for all year: California.

Last January, we were fortunate enough to have been able to spend a month outside of the frigid midwest in sunny Los Angeles. It was without a doubt one of the biggest highlights of the year, and we’ve been apprehensively hoping this past year that we’d be able to pull it off again. I’m happy to announce that we’re going back!

Our plans last January kind of came together at the last minute; Around the middle of December, January had the brilliant idea to see if anyone on Craigslist was looking to sublet their place for a reasonable price. Things quickly came together and three weeks later we found ourselves in a tiny one bedroom apartment two blocks from the Venice pier. This year’s plans shaped up just as quickly, but a little further in advance. We’ll be staying in the same general neighborhood, but a little further back from the beach: eight blocks as opposed to two.


Shortly after New Years, January, Gus and I will hit the road westward! We’re planning to take our time and do a little sightseeing, so be sure to check back for updates. We can’t wait to get out there, and we definitely can’t wait to share some pictures along the way.
