California Dreaming

This year I took my first trip to Cali... I know it, like who hasn't been to Cali! ...I am one of those people, well up until February.

I have to be honest, Cali is beautiful, the vibe is amazing but as a southern girl, for me, Cali is strictly a place just for visiting, not settling down.

The weather was perfect. Coming from Georgia in February where it was winter weather to sunny Cali was amazing. Summer clothes in the winter, i'll take it! I realized more than anything that I was a southern girl on this trip. I've never really considered myself southern, since I'm originally from Cleveland, but I guess it's time to claim my southern roots!

I think us Southern folks like thing slow and chill.. to me Cali felt very much the opposite.

The Hollywood Sign

What's one thing everyone wants to see when they got to Cali, If you guessed the Hollywood sign, you're probably right. Imagine seeing the Hollywood sign, it seems to be in the near distance, you keep walking and then boom, 40 minutes later you still aren't there and it's further away!

Needless to say, we didn't get too close up on the sign, but seeing it waaaaaay off in the distance, in person was pretty cool.

but on the way there I was able to snap this awesome photo... I love how the palm trees line the street. Nope the camera isn't crooked, the tress all lean to the left. I wonder why that is???

Rodeo Dr

After the Hollywood Sign search we ventured to Rodeo Dr. We walked around the fancy area of town for a hour or so, the area was beautiful and was exactly what I would imagined it would be.

Walk of Fame

Again, I had a totally different perception of what the Hollywood Walk of Fame was.. I pictured some sectioned off part of town, somewhere near a big building, maybe an eternal flaming burning... ok I was way off, it's basically a bunch of side walks with stars on it. I was underwhelmed, can't lie, but again it was cool to see it in person

The Food

We of course had to check out Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles....listen! the food was sooooo good. I'm a huge chicken and waffle fan so I knew this was a must try. I was not disappointed!

We also checked out Catch, I'm not much of a seafood person, but from what I heard from everyone the food was great. I stuck with the chicken...But the entrance to the place was beautiful. These lights and greenery made the perfect area for photos.

Well Cali, thank you for being so nice to me! It was real! It was my first time, but it def won't be my last!
