It was a spectacular weekend in Southern California! Low seventies, sunshine, clear skies, and views of and LA Basin and the Pacific. And what made it all the better I was being able to spend Sunday afternoon with a much beloved friend (and old college roommate) who was in town for business!
Beers. The best burger in LA. Window shopping on Abbot Kinney. Wandering the bungalow-lines streets of Venice Beach. Catching up on one another’s lives. Laughter. Beauty. My heart was happy.
Sadly, I forgot that my camera was in my purse until after dropping my friend off at her hotel. Darn. It.
On my way to the freeway I snapped the following photo of cow hide rugs flung over a fence that we drove past twice that day. Each time we could not help but stare. My friend’s comment was, “That’s the kind of stuff I saw as a kid when visiting my grandma in Queens.” Apparently nothing unites this nation like its affinity for fake animal skin rugs hanging on fences.

Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now” — I know this is quite the departure from my usual blogtracks. BUT I need to replace my ipod’s battery and there is only so much NPR and commercial rock-pop-hip-hop radio one can take in a weekend full of driving.
