A few weeks back my sister and I took a trip to Los Angeles to see my mother get honored with a fellowship award for city planning. It was great to be back in the city and visit some of my favorite areas from my short stint working in the city. We took a trip to Santa Monica, drove out to “Old Town” Pasadena, and had a great dinner in “China Town”. It was somewhat surreal going from Charleston, SC to Los Angeles, CA, one side of the country to the other in one day, fantastic! All and all it was a great trip and I was so excited to be back in the city and see my mother get honored for something she has worked her whole career for.
