This is the first of a few posts from our time at the BlogHer 2016 conference. Before the whirlwind of a weekend began, I was invited by Mixbook to join them and other bloggers on a tour of Downtown LA with Red Line Tours and Instagrammer Kyle Huber / aka @asenseofhuber.
I was excited to go on the tour as I am still getting reacquainted with LA after being away for so many years. I used to work downtown about ten years ago, but it has changed quite a lot since then.
We looked at different famous sites like The Bradbury Building and Cliftons Cafeteria, and many historical places in downtown that I didn’t know existed! (I was in my own bubble last time I lived here… 🙂 )
It was a beautiful day and we made our way through downtown, walking with our headphones, and I was happy to play tourist for the day. We stopped at Central Market for lunch and I beelined with Jen of Skinned Knees to a vendor that makes Pupusas.
The day also gave me an opportunity to meet and connect with several other bloggers as well including Jenna from Outrageously Wonderful, Tinna of super duper fantastic, Evelyn of Momma Mafia and a many others!
It was also great to meet the Mixbook team. They graciously gave us some credit to try out the website and I loved it. It was easy to use, and because I can’t remember how long it has been since I printed my photos, I decided to print the 5×5 version (square, IG-like). It was exciting to get an envelope of photos in the mail! (Yay for Happy Mail).
Since we are moving again in a few months, I didn’t want to frame them just yet. Instead, I made a temporary display, so Melissa and I can still enjoy our photos from the first few months of living here in Los Angeles.
(Thanks Mixbook for the tour and the photos!)
