Yesterday I went to the yummiest place on earth, Stickhouse in Santa Monica. I walked past it twice and could no longer abide their sweet confections not in my belly. So I went for a fine “sticked” Italian gelato.
You walk in to the bright and trendy shop to a fine array of gelato on a stick. The almond cherry was by far the prettiest, but of course I went with chocolate.
Next, the gelato maven behind the counter dips your pop in one of three different chocolates (quite masterfully) and then your choice of hazelnut, coconut, or pistachio.
Then you get this delicious treat!!!
As a born and bred Orange County girl the Pacific Ocean flows through my veins. Water has always brought me peace and been a centering force. So, moving into the heart of LA hasn’t been a completely natural shift. I mean it’s wonderful and everything but it’s just NOT THE BEACH!!!
I spent a little quality time in Santa Monica fighting the crazy tide…thanx El Niño. But surfers were out and the sun was high.
Just look at my little big man! It may be time to leave the city.
The best drink in all of LA is at Pizza Antica in Santa Monica. Their blackberry basil lemonade is refreshing with a tangy kick, a definite hot weather must have.
One way to stay mindful is to remain focused on the beauty directly around you. These flowers were in the median as I was doing my ladies who lunch routine, gotta love the Santa Monica scenery.
