This happened weeks ago…better late than never. Sometimes, when you get past the never ending train of red lights on the 405, and the competitive nature of its people, LA can be beautiful.
Shout out to Kevin Bacon who made a rare appearance at the observatory. My Dog Skip…classic.

One year anniversary- March, 2013.
That one time we blindfolded Brianna and David while forcing them to sample the new lays flavors.
The Tsuyuki-Tamashiro-Caouette’s take Los Angeles at the Griffith Observatory.
you have flown by. how is it that I already have another rent check due? you have brought many new projects, the end of a chocolate fast, the start of a chocolate binge, a heart shaped like a fox head, a new life to old jewelry, the overuse of my library card, a world traveler, and a homecoming. next up: March. I’m eagerly awaiting the homecoming you’re about to bring in a few short weeks.
this weekend, we celebrated turning 22. and while I wish I could say the day went off without a hitch, that simply wasn’t the case. windy weather kept our balloon grounded. so instead, we ventured into the hills of irvine to take some photos, only to end the night in the air, and all was well in the end.
among the highlights from the day:
- playing taylor swift’s “22” in honor of finally being the same age
- driving to laguna beach only to find the main road was backed up for 6 miles
- losing a wallet…and finding it 24 hours later (!)
- crying when I found out the balloon was grounded (not a highlight, but I’m sure I’ll find it funny someday)
- making a surprise appearance at the birthday boy’s home, where he found his new favorite shirt
- eating here
Even amidst winter there is beauty to be found, joy to be felt, and fun to be had.
It has been exactly three weeks since we said goodbye to the first place we called home. Our first home. It was long awaited but bittersweet. So many firsts happened within those four walls, so many memorable meals with people we love, and so many nights of laughter.
We will cherish the memories but a home is merely a house without love to fill it. So long as we carry on with love and joy, home will follow us.
Goodbye 3311. You were horribly insulated, you accumulated mold like no other, and your layout was impractical. But you will be missed.
