I’m so excited to announce that a picture from my blog recently won the #goweho contest, which was developed to help promote all of the dynamic and exciting things that make West Hollywood such a special place.
An Instagram photo of Greyson set against a popular WeHo mural put us in the running to be 1 of 4 finalists along with our tagline:
“The time is now. Your moment is here. Go WeHo.”
We’re so grateful for all the votes that we received which allowed for ours to be deemed the winner!
You’ll be able to see our line displayed on banners throughout West Hollywood for the month of August. In addition, I’ll be highlighting the many great spots we’ll be visiting during my special weekend getaway in WeHo for everyone to see.
Lastly, I did want to take the opportunity to tell you how I developed our tagline and the meaning behind it. My intent was to create a line that truly embodies what I feel when I think about this special neighborhood in Los Angeles, and I wanted the line to mean something to all that would read it.
I love the vibe of WeHo, and I really appreciate the fact that when you’re there you can see that people aren’t afraid to be themselves. There’s a strong sense of freedom that you experience when you go out in WeHo, and it’s really a beautiful thing. I’m not naiive to the fact that certain social issues are not of the past and that we still have a lot of inequalities that we’re dealing with in this world, but I wanted to express that the time should be now for everyone to be themselves, and on the other end of that for people to be more accepting. I want my son to grow up in a world where everyone is free to be who they are, just a more compassionate world than we are currently living in. Is that really too much to ask for? In light of everything that’s going on in the world, there are some really great places to be, and some really amazing people to be around. West Hollywood, you’re setting a great example for the world, paving a beautiful path and I’m happy to call you home.
