Bringing Andreas back to California gives us a great excuse to do some sightseeing, and I have realized how many places in my beautiful home state I myself have never even visited.  We spent a whooping 24 hours in Los Angeles after we arrived in California last week and after some shopping at the Grove, headed up to the Griffith Observatory before our dinner reservations for some amazing views of the city.  Los Angeles was never a city I could ever see myself living, but I have to admit it is starting to grow on me…. I should probably thank my dear friend Rade for that- his love for Los Angeles is contagious. :)
