The closest area to where we will be living in North Hollywood does not possess the same full trees and skyscrapers, but I don't think I will get tired of always seeing the high mountains far off in the distance. And although I originally griped about finding parallel parking, it is now one of my favorite things. It gives Michael and I a chance to hold hands and walk a few blocks to where we need to go! For example: Porto's Bakery for breakfast today. It was another place his friend, Banks, recommended. And now we would also recommend it!
Jessy Schram, who played Cinderella in Once Upon A Time. But I couldn't be sure and I didn't ask. Michael then suggested we go to a store called "It's A Wrap". Last night Lacey had told me about it - a thrift store for clothes that are used in TV shows and movies. Probably mostly worn by extras, but still interesting. She said she got a jacket for $15, but every shirt I looked at was over $100!!
We walked to a few stores around there, passing a handful of other thrift shops. I found one store (Michael thinks it was called "Mindfulness"?) that was very cool. The art was amazing - ranging from cards, magnets, necklaces, robots made from nails, a wallet made from tires, and little sewn monster dolls. They were all very creative items, but unfortunately I couldn't "Support Local Artists" because they were asking so much for each piece. I really liked one gold necklace in the shape of California with a small heart punched out and said LA next to it, but I think it was $80?
Zach's Cafe for some Italian food. Maybe pizza? What a great trip this has been so far. I'm very glad we have another three full days after this. Not including the next however many years, once January rolls around!!
