I saw you in that old, rustic building
A night of French cuisine and booze
The night still as young
A sip of champagne
A glass of wine
A giggle
I fall asleep at the table
As the story goes

My Favorite LA Restaurants

This list includes restaurants that primarily serve good food, but also look aesthetically pleasing for all crowds. Places that embody a fun night with memories well made.

Easily one of my favorite restaurants in the Silverlake district. It's a smaller, communal style of dining with a simple 1-pg menu. They serve wonderful Taiwanese, American, and Chinese fusion dishes. I love the spicy shrimp won-tons and the beef noodle soup. A clean and quaint dinner option!

"A Funky bistro with Singaporean shophouse feel, serving Euro-accented Asian eats, craft beers & wines." I love the variety of food choices and the restaurant atmosphere. The food goes without saying. It's delicious.

I love Manuela. Had a wonderful experience here with old and new friends. Located right by the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel gallery, it is "Named for and inspired by owner Manuela Wirth, the restaurant will provide guests with a unique experience where art, community, education, sustainability, and food unite."

The best Brazilian BBQ restaurant you will find in Los Angeles. Beautiful indoors, a bit hidden by the unattractive exterior haha. Every visit you will leave happier than you entered.

who they are
isn’t found
in the arrival.
it’s how they depart.
their truth is in
the leaving.

It Is Better To Give Than To Receive

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. -Philippians 2:3

Golden Years by Dia Frampton (Lyrics)

Castaway songs
In the dead end night
Blades like air holes
That I light on fire

As the smoke rises up in the city
Our bodies are tangled and torn
All the world spins
Until we are dizzy

We want more
We want more
We're in the golden years
Don't tell me what the damage is, oh
We're in the golden years
Don't tell me how hard we got hit

Some days, most days
And most nights too
Can't sleep or shit
I can't escape bad news

Nobody knows, nobody knows
Nobody knows what I go through
Nobody knows, nobody knows
Nobody knows where I turn to

We're in the golden years
Don't tell me what the damage is, oh-oh
We're in the golden years
Don't tell me how hard we got hit

We're in the golden years
Don't tell me what the damage is, oh
We're in the golden years
Don't tell me how hard we got hit
golden years dia frampton song lyrics popular music the voice

^ a beautiful mix & match of colors and textures

^ classic strappy heels and jeans

^ no compromise of comfort and style

^ simple elegance with geometric shapes

^ bold rust orange accents

House Inspo

Looking up some ideas for the new room:

^ simple, but with a sense of old character. Love neutral, rustic colors.

^ comfort is a must. Not looking for elaborate furniture that doesn't feel like 'home'

^ Enjoying the little greens around the house - adds life!

^ working to downsize my closet, and his. Only storing things worth keeping.

Corner Store Record Rack by Urban Outfitters:
^ would love a corner for our favorite trinkets. Books, magazines, etc.

There are days when I feel a sudden sadness sweep over me. It's strange, and it happens so suddenly. Usually it starts off with little things, then it explodes and triggers my whole heart - and I find myself listening to nostalgic albums on repeat.
