I love a good long weekend, and even though my trip to Los Angeles last Thursday was *mostly* work related I managed to have enough fun to fill two weekends. I spent time with my sweet friend Hannah, took two trips to Disneyland, got some overdue work done, and finally crossed a few Los Angeles “must do’s” off of my list!
Top of my list? Making a pit stop at The Grove while it was all decorated for Christmas!
Hannah calls The Grove “The Disneyland of Malls” and she is absolutely spot on! The whole place is huge yet somehow adorable and I really couldn’t tell if I was standing outdoors or indoors the whole time. Smack Christmas decor on top of that and it’s really something to see.
We decided on eating at Ladurée in the center of the mall since it was so close to the giant christmas tree and had outdoor seating. We drank tea, ate dinner….then cookies and it was so christmas-y, I was totally thrilled haha. After dinner we headed over to the tree and took my new Nikon lens for a spin because it works really well with christmas lights and I think I sold Hannah on its capabilities within just a few pictures 😉
