The first time I ever came to LA was when I was 8. My mom and my aunt took my brother and I on a spring break road trip to go to Universal Studios (and see my grandma on the way there). Believe it or not, Universal Studios actually had good rides back then, and I probably rode the ET ride ten times. I also got an ET doll while I was there, and I still have it to this day. One day we also ventured out to good ol Hollywood Boulevard. Luckily I don't remember it being as sketchy as it is today, although at that time it was probably even worse. What I do remember was the Chinese Theater. Massive and beautiful with a huge dragon at the entrance. It was so glamorous to me. With all the movie stars handprints in the front and the big spotlights that turned on at night, it was the Hollywood I had always seen on TV. Little did I know as an 8 year old that I would attend movie premieres at that same theater when I was grew up. I love that for little me. This ring is for her.
