What was life like before things changed for us in March?
I work all the time and that has not changed, but I’m now feeling less guilty for not socializing much. I was traveling a lot before the shutdown and I do miss that and not seeing my family in NY yet I am liking a slightly simpler life these days.
What do your days look like now?
We have a 10 month old puppy so my life is now consumed with the dog and work. And when we can time cooking and taking nighttime walks with my boyfriend (and the Zeppo the dog).
You’ve been exploring your mid-Wilshire neighborhood on foot. What are some architectural gems you’ve discovered? (and if you can provide photos, that would be great.
We live in an area called Wilshire Vista, the less fancy neighbor of Carthay Circle. This community was built mostly in the 1920s-1940s and is made up of well-appointed duplexes and triplexes. I love to study the variations on deco, Spanish mission, Tudor, Georgian and all the other styles that were fantasy interpretations but nonetheless charming. We actually bought a house a few blocks away from where we are living now in Wilshire Vista – a 1930’s lovely Spanish and a MAJOR FIXER. So we walk over daily and have picnics there while under construction.
