How long have you lived in Santa Monica? Two years.

What do you love most about your neighborhood?The fresh air and the trees; they are so beautiful. All the lawns have so many beautiful flowers and everyone landscapes their front lawns here, whether small or large. And, of course, the proximity to the ocean is delightful. I think it's amazing you can walk around this neighborhood and there is always something beautiful to see that you haven't noticed before.
