but today i needed something a little more decadent so i made l.a. in bloom's banana-date shake for elodie and i. heavenly! i have been reading heather's blog for a while now and appreciate her take on life in los angeles. it can be such a wonderful place to be and she really keeps me in love with the place -- even during a string of smoggy mornings such as we've been having lately!
i should probably include a picture of aforementioned smoothie. instead, here are some pictures from yesterday's adventure which included the aquarium, the beach and an evening at bash please studio for heather heron's pop up shop. driving down the hill into santa monica and glimpsing the first view of the sparkling ocean with sailboats bobbing on it had me singing jimi hendrix 'castles made of sand' and 'one rainy wish' for the rest of the day. such a genius day in california!
