umami burger! have you been? if not, then you should def try it! i mean any place that has garlic aioli is a must visit in my book.

i just got back from a mini-2-day-getaway to LA. it was 2 wonderful days spent with wonderful people eating incredible food while hitting up some of my fave spots + some new ones!

wow, your photos are absolutely beautiful! i haven't been to that burger place, but of course, i don't live in LA so there are tons of places i haven't been! i will remember that place the next time i go there! i LOVE LOVE LOVE the night shot of the city and the last one, how did you take that last shot with the bokeh and perfect circles?? are you taking pictures of lights?

ashley - thank you!! :) i'm posting the rest oh so very soon!

sandy - thanks so much! the last photo is almost exactly like the photo above it, but i just took it completely out of focus with an f-stop of 1.4. so all the pretty lights turned into circles! :)
