C H E E R S… and i’ll see you in 2013!

rain + wind = pretty LA

i think LA is always it’s prettiest after it rains and with the help of some gusty winds, you’re left with this picturesque view.

hoping for more rain in our near future.  my rain boots would like to come out and play as well.

the gift of sushi

just when i thought sushi couldn’t get any cuter, sakae sushi in gardena, puts it in a box and wraps it up.

made me think of my recent post, in the details.  this was definitely one of those little details i saw today.  and it definitely brought a smile to my face.  when the lady behind the counter handed me the box, i felt like a giddy little girl with a present someone just surprised me with. it was such a fun experience unwrapping my gift box of sushi when i got home and opening the box to see this beautiful presentation laid out in front of me.

as i was taking pictures of my lunch today, i couldn’t help but think of how very well represented those sushi erasers and sushi usb drives are.  🙂
