All day I’ve been distracted and I blame the weather. I honestly don’t mind a rainy day… they are perfect days for sitting in my office a.k.a ┬áthe kitchen table (one can imagine) light some candles, put on some tunes and write. So I started to take advantage of it. That was my plan. Instead I wrote a bit, downloaded some tunes, surfed the net, cleaned, went to yoga, checked my hair, stared out the window and visualized a sunny beach. I started looking at some pictures of when I was in California, particularly Venice Beach. I love Venice. It was this time last year where I spent many o days taking in the smell of the ocean, the vitamin D, running along the ocean, character watching, listening to the sounds of the waves, enjoying happy hour and living like a local! It’s amazing where a picture will take you on a rainy afternoon. – Christina XO



When I was in California this past year I had the luxury of NOT driving…Thanks to my personal chauffeur….My boyfriend. I’ve had my license, not had my license and soon will be getting it AGAIN (fingers crossed). I feel like I’m 16 all over again. Day to day we see people honking horns, cutting people off, not signaling, texting, sexting, chatting on their phones, picking their nose, driving too slow, driving to fast, falling asleep at the wheel and the list goes on and on and on. The very reason why I walk, bike, or trot everywhere. As I was sorting through my L.A pictures I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at this very one. I find this picture so endearing and comical. Grandpa, in the middle of the street on his motorized scooter out for the day, not to mention┬áthe bright orange flag giving us the heads up that he’s on the road. It’s priceless and puts a smile on my face. I have a feeling that will be me years down the road. Gosh, I hope no one cut him off. He was a grandpa on a mission. I think he was picking up his lady friend, small enough to fit in that basket. -Christina
