nice day in "awsome town"

By far the worst ad campaign I have ever heard, the powers that be have decided to nickname the town I grew up in “Awesome Town.”  They are playing this completely cheesy advertisement on all the LA radio stations and I feel like, although I love Valencia, I would probably use a myriad of other adjectives to describe it before getting to awesome…it’s not awesome; the planet Saturn is awesome.  I mean, think of the real meaning of that word. 


In any case, due to car issues, the boy and I had to make an impromptu trip out to Awesome Town the other day, so I decided to take stock and see what makes Valencia special to me and how totally awesome this corner of the valley really is…



The Park: 



I spent many a summer’s day playing games with all my neighbors and friends in this park.

Max: 

My parents’ Jack Russell Terrier, who is definitely the most neurotic and lovable dog on the planet!


My Mom’s Decorations:



My mother has always decorated our house for each holiday and every season, complete with a wreath on the door!  She has a wonderful sense of decorating and made our house fun and festive.  I definitely am inspired by her.


The Paseos:



Tree-lined walkways wind all over the neighborhoods, making it easy and safe to walk or ride your bike just about anywhere.  I used to walk the Paseos every day to and from school with my friends.  


My Family:



I know it sounds cheesy, but what really makes Valencia an “Awesome Town” for me, is the fact that it’s where I grew up and it’s where I can always find my family!
