The first thing I did once I arrived in Los Angeles, was put on my sunglasses and flip flops! Such a welcome change to wearing fur lined boots everyday for months! Then my mom and I met up with her life-long friend for breakfast at Uncle Bill's Pancake House in Manhattan Beach. Oh how I enjoy eating breakfast (my favorite food), on an outdoor patio (my favorite place to dine), overlooking the Pacific Ocean (my favorite view)! We were off to a great start! Then my mom's friend suggested that we go to the Getty Villa in Malibu after our brunch since we were somewhat in the area. According to the website I looked up on my iPhone, the Getty Villa is "an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria." It sounded cool, but I had no idea how BEAUTIFUL it was! I was almost more impressed with the architecture of the museum than the actual artifacts. I couldn't help but imagine the most beautiful wedding taking place at this venue. I don't think it's possible to get married there, unfortunately. But if anyone knows someone who wants an engagement session there, send them my way and I'll give them a great deal simply for the joy of shooting there! If you are ever in Southern California, this free museum is definitely worth a visit!
