Andrew and I just hiked up to the Observatory in Griffith Park, just as the sun was setting, and it was so lovely out that I wished I’d brought my camera (like I do practically every time I go up there — I hate carrying anything but a water bottle along though!). It was such a treat to take an hour to walk up the trail, and look out over the whole city from the glorious spot at the top of the hill. I pretty much missed the entire Christmas season here, so I was happy to finally get a peek at the pretty “tree” on top of the Capitol Records building. The clouds were pink and orange and blue before they darkened, and the city lights way down below were so twinkly and pretty. Everyone we met on the path coming and going smiled and said hello. It was so nice to spend a little bit of the last day of 2006 up there, and at the farmer’s market — two of my favorite places in Los Angeles.
I feel so lucky to have had this year in my life — I got to see my friends and family, travel, make crafts with my nephew, work on projects I love, and spend my eighth year with Andrew. I’m so happy to be writing here, and for a few magazines and books and at getcrafty and Adorn. Thank you for reading.
I’ll leave you with a picture of daisies and DSL cables, which seems to sum it up for me these days. I wish I had the Observatory to show you, but maybe one of these days I’ll get Andrew to schlep the camera for me…
Wishing you a wonderful, peaceful and happy 2007!
