Summertime in LA means a lot of things. Hiatus, Tourists, Bikinis (well, more of them anyway), Disneyland Blackout dates, 

A few friends & I decided to partake in this lovely LA ritual (before my recent foot reconstruction). It reminded me of going to the drive-in. We used to do that all of the time as kids, and I LOVED it. I remember begging my parents to take us & I'd always fall asleep by the 2nd movie. I loved packing up the back of  the truck with blankets and pillows, smelling the warm summer air, and looking up at the stars.
Anyway, back to Cinespia...It's outdoors in the old Hollywood Cemetery, you bring picnics and blankets and chairs while you watch old movies through a projector. We drove up to Silverlake & stopped at the oh so delicious Forage to grab ourselves a picnic. Lauren brought the drinks, Kathleen brought the macaroons, and Megan & I brought the blankets and chairs. We had a hilarious night of laughs while we each experienced "Harold & Maude" for the first time. (we still aren't sure if the film was intended to be funny or not, however we thought it was funny regardless) 

The food was delicious, the girls were adorable, and I highly recommend everyone experience this at least once! I wish I could go again this summer, but these gimpy feet are holding me back! 
If you're able to go on July 3rd, they are showing Ghostbusters! In a cemetery...c'mon, totally awesome.
