LA Bucket List: The Chandelier Tree

I feel like my time in LA is coming to a close. I am heading on a road trip at the end of November with stops in San Diego, Phoenix, The Grand Canyon and on through to Colorado for the remainder of the year.

I'm not sure I'll be back. I feel like I might not.

Only time will tell. Since I feel like I've not seen as much of the city as I would have liked to, for the rest of my time here I'm am. I'm not waiting for that special someone to see it with because who knows when that will happen. And I REALLY love the quote: "If you are looking for the love of your life stop. They will be waiting for you you when you start doing the things you love." {Plus that whole no dating vow for the rest of the year I made.}
THIS is my LA bucket list. First stop The Chandelier Tree {2811 West Silver Lake Drive}. I love Silver Lake and it's close to home! I always forget that. I'll be there more often in the coming weeks I think.
When my good friend Erin was coming to visit me from Pennsylvania, I wanted to take her to all the best places in LA. I did a Google search and found The Chandelier Tree. Unfortunately we didn't get to make it over there last November. It took a year but I finally made it. It was worth the wait.
Right off of Glendale Ave, you turn onto the street and it is right there. It hits you immediately. I was like a moth to a flame. I pulled over into the first open spot I saw and drifted towards it in awe.
I was alone, on this dark and quiet street seeing this fantastical thing light up the night. I couldn't believe it. And I was all alone. It felt good.
I wish the pictures did it justice.

Next stop?! The future...or the past...BACK to the future.

  3. "If you are looking for the love of your life stop. They will be waiting for you you when you start doing the things you love."

    I think I tried to convey that to you, but not nearly as eloquently. I wish you all the best on your trip:

    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
    And, until we "meet" again,
    May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
