It has become clear that no amount of rain dancing or praying or hopping on one foot while burning sage is going to bring colder temps, so I have resigned myself to taking advantage of the warmer temps. With that mindset I wore this amazing silky soft Flynn Skye jumper on a date this weekend with Big C -it’s so fabulously lightweight and comfortable that it feels like wearing pajamas (and I’m a HUGE fan of anything pajama-ish). Big C and I love sushi and decided to check out a new spot in Playa Vista that we hadn’t been to yet called Sweet Fish (not to be confused with the ever delicious Sugar Fish). If you’re in the area check it out – their sushi is fresh and their rolls are relatively innovative (although the menu was on the pricy side, more in-line with Nobu prices than I would have expected). You can sit outside and look out on to the park and sweet little streets of the Playa Vista community. Big C and I dream of living here one day; it’s like a tiny town all it’s own with businesses, a grocery store, bank, medical center. They have pilates and yoga and a feel that reminds me of the photos I see of Europe. There are gorgeous parks all over the place and tons of kids always out playing with their parents. They have concerts in the park during the summer and movies under the stars, and even host their own farmer’s market twice a week. Totally my kind of spot – and I would really love for Little C to have more friends around to grow up with and play with….we don’t really have that many kids around except for our upstairs neighbors and it makes me sad for her. Perhaps the best part of living in Playa Vista is that you would never have to leave if you didn’t want to! A brand new Whole Foods is in the process of being built literally blocks away as well as a movie theater/shopping outdoor mall and I really could not imagine a more perfect area to live. The only hangup is that the condos start in the low millions and the rent rate for 2-3 bedrooms is around $5,000 a month aha….aha…….so…for now we will dream and frequent the area and work towards one day making it ours.
