Bravo!

Living under the Hollywood sign can have its ups and downs.  Like most Hollywood Hills residents, I have been known to spend my days giving directions to the infamous sign and navigating my way through the traffic caused by the slow moving "Stars Homes" Tour buses.


All inconveniences aside, I just adore my neighborhood and yesterday afternoon was one of those days that made me realize how lucky I am to live where I do.  We were hit by a surprise rain/thunder and lightening storm right at sunset.  After a few scorching hot days, the sudden cool showers pouring from the pink skies were nothing short of breathtaking!  There were rumblings of thunder in the distance and flashes of light over the hills, all to be tied up beautifully by an epic rainbow...


So, Mother Nature, life has been pretty rough over the past few days with your triple digit souring temperatures... but that was quite a show you put on. Your beauty is nothing short of awe inspiring and you are well and truly forgiven!
