Love for LA

14 Jul

I am off to LA in the morning! I can’t possibly explain how excited I am about this trip. In 2007, I was in the Disneyland All-American College Band and it was by far the best summer of my life. This weekend, they are having a reunion of anyone who has ever been in the College Band so NATURALLY I am going back. There were three girls in the band my year, and we have stayed unbelievably close ever since. Kristen lives in LA and works at USC, and Jackie just moved back to Georgia after going to UCLA and working in LA for a year. (She’s going to be teaching horn at the University of Florida in the fall. How crazy is that??) They are two of the most amazing people I have EVER met, and I can’t wait to see them again! Jackie and I are both staying with Kristen, and it will be like old times. :) The reunion should be fun – we’re playing two sets in the park and there’s a reception and whatnot. I can’t wait to be back in the Happiest Place on Earth!

Plans for the trip include, but are not limited to: LA Phil playing Mahler 1, DISNEYLAND, reunion on Saturday, “In the Heights” at the Pantages Theater, Inn N Out, Tower Records, Jinpachi (possibly the best sushi EVER), and THE BEACH. I looked at the weather forecast – we’re looking at sunny, with high’s in the 80’s. Yes. Please.

Something I also plan to do while I’m there is really check out LA. Every time I go, it’s always such a vacation, and I’m always way too excited to be rational about much of anything. :) However, this time is a little different, because LA is on the list of places that I might move to in a year. I know that it is hella expensive and absolutely monstrous, but I’m going to look at it this time with slightly different eyes. Although I’m still going to be ridiculously excited, so we’ll see how that goes.

And lastly, I’m not taking my computer on the trip. Um, what? Liz without her computer?? Unheard of. Well, folks, it’s happening. No blog posts, no facebook updates (……that might be a lie…….), no e-mail (less of a lie, but still might be a lie), nothing. Have a great week!!

(Bach can’t wait, either. He loves Disneyland.)
