At the Zoo

IMG_0501(1)Last week I attended a reception for donors to our local hospital at the LA Zoo.  This fun event took place in the new Elephants of Asia Pavilion and featured appetizers, desserts, wine tasting, a string quartet and some of the cutest elephants ever.

Being out at this lovely event on a warm evening made me even more excited for summer here in LA.  It’s almost Hollywood Bowl season and I can hardly wait! The Bowl has become one of my favorite summer traditions – each week we bring friends with us and eat a fun meal together in our seats before the show starts.  The first show of the season is now officially less than a month away and signifies the start of my summer.

When does your summer start? Is it one specific event or holiday that makes it feel like summer to you or the longer days or warmer temps?? I’d love to know…
