Through work, my husband and I had the opportunity to explore LA then Anaheim with some good friends. We then were able to take a relaxing, Valentine's week vacation near San Diego. As nearly ever ride share driver made sure to disclose, it was abnormally rainy / chilly. We did not get the amazing "so cal" weather that everyone talks about...but that did not stop us from seeing some beautiful sites. If anything, it just made us stop and relax on occasion rather than filling each day with activities. This state has a unique, inspiring aesthetic. It is no wonder that artists flock to find their grove ;)
