The boys and I have been taking the Metro Local to school. It’s a short bus ride. Thank god, because 3.0 has decided it’s the most desirable place to take a poo. Thank god again, because 3.0 is still wearing diapers (and he has my permission to do so until he’s good and ready for the big time). Anyway, after I drop them at preschool, I enjoy a long, thought-provoking walk/skip home. Along the way, I pass some of my favorite Venice and Mar Vista houses, gardens, colors and landmarks that make our neighborhood such a great place to live. Ahhhhh, I do love LA…

PS, The above shot is the storefront of the new Surfing Cowboys location. It’s coming soon!

Finally!!! Some really good, organic, ice cream in the hood! Come to Abbot Kinney, in Venice, this Friday evening for some Sweet Lucie’s old fashioned goodness…

(and if you’re not in the hood, stay tuned, because sweet lucie’s is workin’ on coming to a store near you!)

I finally made it over to the new General Store; the second of two California locations.  The first in San Francisco, and now, a beautiful bright Venice space that artfully displays new and vintage treasures by local artists and craftspeople. It has a little something for everyone.  If you don’t happen to be near one of the two locations you can always do some shoppin’ virtual style: Shop General Store.  Check it out.
