5 Things Laura Loves

5 Things Laura Loves

5things1 {Los Angeles}

This week, I made my yearly trip out to the west coast to visit family and friends.  I’m always seduced by the palm trees, sunny skies, and warm weather in LA.  It always feels like a dream land like nothing bad could ever happen.  I always ask myself, why don’t I live here?  I feel completely at home there and even though I’ve been to LA almost every year of my life, there are still places to see, restaurants to try, and old favorites to go back to.  Today, I’m in Seattle visiting my best friend.  I love Seattle because it’s a completely different vibe than NY and LA.  The leaves also change here which makes me feel like I’m not totally missing the last week before the leaves drop.  Seattle has an amazing food scene and I’m so excited to try some of the restaurants.  In the meantime, these are the things I’ve been lovin this week.
