Warm Sunny Memories

Right after graduating from college, from 2005 to 2009 I lived in Laguna Beach in a studio that was two short blocks from the beach.It was amazing. My own personal sanctuary. Everything in my style, where I wanted it and how I wanted.Oh, what a time in my life! Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE where I live and my life in San Francisco but there is something special about this place that I called home for nearly five years of my adult life.The building was an old hotel built around 1915 that had been converted into studios. My studio was converted from the formal dining room so my room had a 10 FOOT mantle and a nonworking fireplace that housed my candles.One of the windows had a tiny ocean view and the front door opened to a grassy yard on the back side of the building.I have such warm memories from this apartment and this time of independence in my life. Christoph and I first started dating in this apartment. I had the idea for Hello Cupcake in this apartment. I found out I was going to be an Aunt in this apartment. I feel like I grew as a person in this apartment. I will forever treasure these pictures and those memories.
