Big news! We’re going to California this October for our second anniversary!! I am bursting with excitement. Ever since I lived in San Diego for a summer, I’ve been dying to go back. At the time, I could really see myself there for more than just a summer, and now I feel the same way about Nick and I possibly living in California. For now I’m so excited to take a fun trip together. Nick grew up outside of Los Angeles, so we’re going to visit where he used to live, too! We’ll be in Southern California, renting an apartment in Long Beach and exploring the Los Angeles area. We may also head south, possibly all the way to San Diego.
So to my California readers, I’d love to hear, do you have any recommendations for things to do or places to eat? We’re looking for local spots and the only “touristy” thing that we’re probably going to do is the Warner Bros. tour (to see the Friends set!!). We want to visit the beach and eat the best fresh, local food in different neighborhoods! (For recommendation purposes: I’m a vegetarian; Nick is a carnivore and beer connoisseur.) I also want to do a bit of shopping (if I can convince Nick- ssh, don’t tell him!;). I’ve heard the Rose Bowl Flea Market is a must, too! Any other shops or thrift stores you’d recommend?
Thanks so much for your help! xo
