Hello, hello everyone! It has been an absolutely gorgeous week in Old Towne Orange and, compared to last week, the sky looked more blue than ever. So I'm not going to lie. This week, I took a second trip down to Urth Caffe to try their avocado toast - and to no one's surprise it was delicious! I also got to take myself up on one of my New Year's resolutions that I outlined in our New Years blog and explored SoCal a little bit! On Monday, I took a trip down to Laguna Beach to walk around, visit some art galleries, sit on the beach, and enjoy the sea mist. As much as I love Old Towne (and you all know how much we love Old Towne), it was great to take MLK day to explore our backyard right here in Orange County.
For this week, I wanted to take this blog and just update all of our readers and subscribers on I Heart. I am super excited to announce that I Heart OTO will be taking on some new projects in the new year - and hopefully I can give you all an idea of what is to come very soon! When I first moved to OTO in August of 2016 (Intern Marshall speaking here), I had no idea how easily it would be to fall so in love with my college town. Quicker than ever, I witnessed the Plaza go through so many positive changes - many of which I've been lucky enough to share with you all! That is why we want to share even more content with you on a regular basis. So.... that is why we are announcing .... *drum roll please* ....
