The Los Angeles Bucket List

The final count down has arrived. I am moving back to the Valley of the Sun at the end of April! I am incredibly excited to move home again and so grateful for the opportunity to live in the City of Angels for the past 8 months. I've learned so much about myself and that could have only come from this experience. Before this opportunity came along I was feeling frustrated with Arizona. I felt it was holding me back, had nothing to offer, wasn't what I needed to be myself. But moving away opened my eyes to how much I love home. It's where my heart feels fullest. 

That being said, I have certainly opted to make the most out of living here and enjoy it to its fullest. Thats almost an impossible task, considering how large the LA area is. But I'm doing my best. This is going to be an updated blog post--check back to see what if it's accomplished. I'm going to post the entire list of things I feel are necessary to my experience as an Angeleno and the photos once I accomplish them. I am so grateful for the most amazing friends I have to find these gems with me!
