Christmas in Beverly Hills

In Los Angeles, "good" neighborhoods are stacked right next to "bad" neighborhoods, sometimes even within the same block, which is how the likes of me ended up living 10 minutes from Beverly Hills. :)

No snow for Christmas of course, but on clear days after it rains, you can see snow-tops on mountains in the distance, and I've grown rather fond of the juxtaposition of holiday lights and palm trees.

Hope you enjoy my wee photos, taken last Saturday.


  1. Wow! I've never spent the holidays in a warm place before. The palm trees do look a little out of place!

    I gave you a little award on my blog today. :)

  2. Very nice pics. If I showed you mine, all you'd see is some white stuff. I forget what they call it... Oh, yeah. SNOW. LOL

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I hopped over from the award link at Natalie's blog. It looks like a fun site! I promise to visit often. :)

  4. Thanks so much, Natalie! What a lovely surprise :)

    Lynnette, I'm from the Midwest originally, so I hear you about the snow. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your blog looks awesome.

    Shannon, you are so sweet to check out my blog. Please make yourself at home!

  5. Love the Santa and sleigh! :O)

  6. Thank you! That's one of my favorites, too :)
