I thought I would share some of the colors of Christmas that I have experienced. Had such a fun day yesterday going downtown LA with my husband and parents. I think that was the first time we had spent a day together alone without children since I have had my son fourteen years ago.
Here are some of the sights that we took in on historic Olvera street. We started with a fabulous lunch at Philippe's, It was so funny because we ordered so much food that the cute lady preparing said, WOW!! She even gave me a sweet little purse. I had no idea I was being such a piggy!! I only get to go there once or twice a year and I had to have some of that amazing banana cream pie to go with my sandwich and of course I had to have some pickled beets too and I ordered this times four along with a few other goodies. No wonder she said, wow!!
We finished off the evening viewing the big city from the Griffith Observatory. I have been there several times but it has been a few years. It always takes my breath away. The bummer was that my husband had read that the Christmas lights were suppose to be amazing. However we never did see any.
