Things To Do

40 Awesome Things You Do in Los Angeles When You’re Hanging Out With The Love of Your Life

August 5, 2015 by Brian Champlin

As I look back on the journey of We Like L.A. over roughly the past two years I feel like like the luckiest guy on the face of the earth. And it has nothing to do with site traffic or social shares or email subscriber growth, but rather it’s about the unique opportunity I’ve had to work on a project day in, day out with the person I’ve grown to love the most in the world.

Granted, it’s not always easy to be on clock while simultaneously cohabitating with someone (there’s no such thing as leaving work at the office…), but I’ve found the rewards to be incomparable.

Case in point, I was browsing through our Instagram account the other day and I was astounded to see just how many things Christina and I have been able to experience together. Quite literally, it was all there, like a neat little social media time capsule documenting all the cool stuff we’ve been able to do together and places around the city we’ve explored.

With that in mind, I had a notion I might share a chronological overview of some of those experiences, blog post style, hopefully in the process inspiring a few ideas about how you (our reader) might explore L.A. with the love in your life.

It’s almost like watching a diary of the evolution of our relationship.

And this is how it starts…

(btw, we just started a Snapchat account welikela if you want to add us there and follow along as the adventure continues)
