Of course, my favorite part of day one was our very first customer of the day… I looked up to see my sister pushing a stroller with little guy Aaron, and big guy Sean riding along. Kelley's neighbor, Shirley, came along. Not only was Sean the first kid in Los Angeles to get to talk to the elves at Northpole, because it wasn't yet busy, he got to talk to not one, but all three elves!
The rest of the day was fairly slow, as many kids in LA are still in school. We expect the next few days to be crazy busy, so it was nice to have a day to get everything figured outI had brought a few snacks with me, but I walked upstairs for a quick lunch overlooking the plaza at Cho Oishii sushi.
I had a tiny joiner moment while I was eating lunch. A cute, older Japanese couple walked by and the man quietly said something to his wife, not expecting that I could understand.
What a great first day, and I'm looking forward to two more!
