I have finally made my way back to Texas after exploring the wonderful state of California for the past ten days! I had such an amazing time in each of the three different cities I visited. I have wanted to take a trip to California for some time now and I am so happy I finally made that dream a reality!
My mom traveled with me for half of my trip and our first stop was Los Angeles. We spent the day shopping, exploring around town, and soaking in all of the city’s beauty!
Our next stop was Long Beach and, oh my goodness, it was gorgeous! I attended the Dance Teacher Summit and got to learn and take class with so many incredible people.
Next I visited Placentia, California for a dance intensive at Mather Dance Company. I have admired this studio and the owner, Shannon Mather, for some time now. Being able to learn first hand from some of the industry’s best teachers was such an incredible experience!
My trip came full circle as I made my last stop in LA. I was completely mesmerized by this city. I loved everything about it and hope to visit again soon!
My last day in LA I decided to take a break from dancing and go for a hike at Runyon Canyon. The views were seriously so beautiful!
That evening I revisited “The Grove” for more shopping and dinner!
Might I just add that this flower shop was my absolute favorite stop in the shopping center/farmers market. I bought some adorable new succulents to bring home! (Ps. they do let you carry plants on the plane… thank goodness!)
This trip will forever hold a special place in my heart. I learned so much and made some amazing friends along the way! I can’t wait to go back!
Thanks for reading!
