Something I Love About Living In L.A.

It is still summer according to the calendar, but I am well into the second week of school, so it feels like September.  As a side note, having the thermometer hit 96 degrees is kind of annoying after school starts. Something that is NOT annoying is the fact that here in Los Angeles I don’t […]
