I Love LA...

Something that you have never heard me say before.

Why the sudden admiration after eleven years of loathing ?
It seems that living in a diverse, urban environment has its advantages.

This is a picture taken outside an Ethiopian restaurant, very near our house. This past Saturday we had the privilege of joining two other families who have, or are in the process of, adopting siblings from Ethiopia. It was wonderful to meet these folks. I would go on and on about them, but feel that I should respect their privacy. Let's just say that it is going to be a lot easier to raise our children here in metropolitan Los Angeles, than it would be in the place we almost moved to...


We are trudging through the paper work. We like to do it with a glass of wine and some visual inspirations. (That last sentence could apply to something much more titillating, but alas not in this case.)

Also, we told our neighbors and they were very excited for us. Serendipitously they were upgrading their eleven year old daughter's bedroom furniture and brought over a lovely changing table/dresser that they no longer needed. We officially have "baby stuff" in our house.

  1. Duh. It's what I've been saying.

    I wish now that I had worked on a less artistic (autistic maybe?) composition to this photo.
