Once again I am at a point where I can't stop thinking about living in Los Angeles, even more specifically the Abbot Kinney neighborhood in Venice. My husband and I love it there. I moved to Chicago just about nine years a go, and it's a great city. But to be completely honest I'm just over it. I want to be living somewhere that, between the cold winters and hot summers, I won't feel cooped up the majority of the year. I am an outdoorsy person, so the ocean and mountains are another huge draw for me. It's just such a beautiful, diverse city with an interesting history and culture. Some of my best friends live there, and my friends are like family to me. My husband and I both have a little more school left here in Chicago, and then I would really love to live in LA at least for a little while. My only concern is the whole driving thing. Neither one of us has had a car in a long time for a lot of reasons. I'm not sure I would like to have to drive everywhere. Ryan seems to think that we could still ride our bikes around, and maybe he's right. It's been about four years now that I have been longing to move to LA, I really hope that it happens and sooner rather than later.
