This past weekend, Aaron and I did a whirlwind trip to LA to scope out a trade show and visit with our cousins who had recently moved to the Pasadena area.
We had an obscenely early flight to arrive bright and early at the Designers & Agents show in downtown LA. We were surprised to see that the show wasn’t nearly as manic as the shows we’ve seen elsewhere, but the layout was cool and I met a few really talented designers. Since the show was smaller than we’d thought, we were done in record time and beat the traffic to enjoy sunshine and 80 degree weather.
We enjoyed a leisurely evening BBQ with Michael and Heather. The next morning we wandered the Pasadena Farmers Market and then hit the Santa Monica beach, followed by a bit of shopping and gelato.
On our way to the airport on Sunday, we met for a quick bite with Christina, my friend and genius photographer. We couldn’t believe the size of their desserts! My favorite was this HUGE apple pie.
