Ah, Little Italy how I love you so. I would have to say hands down, that Little Italy holds the greatest nostalgia for me out of all the downtown San Diego neighborhoods. I hadn't been there in quite awhile, and was worried that a lot would have changed, but to my pleasant surprise it is much still the same. There is still the great little gelato cafe on India Street, which is within walking distance to the National Comedy Theatre. My husband and I started going to this theater and gelato shop 8 years ago and the gelato is just as tasty now as it was then. The only sad thing to me, is that I remembered this cafe having tons of paintings from local artists on the walls, but they aren't there anymore (I guess I can't expect everything to stay status quo for 8 years).
Once a month the National Comedy Theatre has a Midnight Improv Show for adults only where anything goes. We went to the show this last weekend and it was still just as entertaining as it was when we first started dating. In some weird way, this little neighborhood feels like a piece of my relationship between my husband and me...and I was glad to feel like I still knew my way around it.
Necklace & Seiko Watch - vintage flea market purchases
Tassel bracelet and vintage gold clutch - my daily little pieces of my momma. The clutch I used to play with when I was a little girl ALL the time! I loved it because it has a little zipper on the bottom that opens a super secret pocket.

Hope you aren't getting sick of my San Diego week! Stay tuned for more.
Oh - and P.S. The one thing I certainly do NOT miss about San Diego is that it makes my hair out of control! I should have known better than to try and straighten while I was down there because it just starts puffing up and waving out. :/
