Sometimes this busy mama just needs a little getaway to refresh. So, when some of our best friends invited us to LA to see one of our favorite bands, Johnnyswim, play — we happily turned it into a little mini getaway. A family friend stayed with the girls and we booked an airbnb for the night and got to enjoy a fun night out! It’s amazing how much a little trip can help you recharge, even one that’s less than 24 hours! I always miss my babies, but it’s so good for us to get away and have time together to just be young & in love 😉
We took our friends to Eveleigh for dinner (yes the restaurant that inspired our daughter’s name!)… then we headed to The Fonda for the show. And the best part is that we didn’t even know that the opener was another one of Ryan’s (and now mine) favorite bands – Penny And Sparrow. Both bands were incredible live, and I just love seeing these musicians in their element making such incredible music. Seeing people live in their sweet spot as artists is always so inspiring and helps get my own creative juices flowing! Just so good.
The next morning we slept in until 10 a.m. (can I get an AMEN?!) and then hit up The Assembly in West Hollywood for coffee. Their pour over brew was amazing. I don’t usually drink black coffee but it was so good even by itself.
One grateful mama right here. I know a lot of moms who don’t get the chance to sneak away like this for one reason or another, and I am just so grateful that we get to every now and then! Cheers to little adventures and friends and fun and late night hangs! <3
