welcome home

it’s been a whirlwind around here – a big move, a big trip, and now i have a big friend (not in size, but in love and importance) out visiting me in los angeles.  sydney is one of my dearest friends and i’m so glad she took the time/money/effort to make it out here.  if you know sydney, you know it’s a big deal that she flew to los angeles by herself and has actually been driving her cute little blue ford focus rental around these crazy roads!  so far we’ve gone to the walk of fame and the chinese theatre, we’ve done a star home tour (something i had previously vowed not to do, but i got a little wrapped up in haggling with the guys bugging us on the street…plus…syd really wanted to do it.  it wasn’t as bad as i’d thought it would be, actually ;), seen the hollywood sign, gone to more high-end fashion stores than i’ve previously been to in my entire life, gone to a few great restauraunts, diddy riese, menchies, gone hiking, and today we’re going to the getty and to venice boardwalk to rent bicycles.  she must put her feet in the pacific ocean – it’s a tad chilly for actual submersion.

this has been a nice welcome home to los angeles.  my friend, rachael, moved out from nashville while i was in the canyon.  we have a house together with one more roommate in a wonderful neighborhood in the valley.  if i have to come home from the grand canyon to los angeles at least it was to such wonderful women with whom i have such rich histories.  egads, friends are so important.  thank you, ladies, for being in my life and for the patience and grace you’ve shown me and taught me over the years.  i love you dearly.
