The Wild Boy with Golden Curls
This year we’ve teamed up a handful of our most inspirational friends to find out what the sunny season means to them. The first of our exclusive summer stories belongs to model, actress and super mama Amanda Booth, her husband Mike and their gorgeous, golden haired son Micah. “Dreamy, sun-drenched and intensely imaginative” we dare you to read it and not fall head over heels for the ‘wild boy with the golden curls’.
When does your summer officially start?
If your summer was a story, where would it take place?
Who are the major characters?
As a family, do you prefer lazy summer days or are you adventurers?
I prefer lazy summer days, splashing about in any body of water. Mike however, loves and needs adventures! I think that’s why we work well together; the family ends up very balanced! He would love to be hiking and camping - surviving some sort of wild adventure in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn’t mind plopping on a beach towel and just soaking up the sun!
What’s your local hotspot or hangout on sunny days?
We love to grab a coffee and Vegan donut from Donut Friend. Then stroll to the local park for some playtime with Micah, or the botanical gardens (Descanso Gardens). We love lunch at Kitchen Mouse which is a dairy and gluten free restaurant with a play area for kids, so Micah can go wild and eat anything on the menu! Then, we’d hang out at the Americana because Micah loves to play in the water fountain. The day would end with a hike at Brand Park. Coffee, sweets, water and sunshine. Those are good days!
What’s the family summer style?
Your Instagram tells your family story so beautifully, what’s the one thing you want people to know or take away?
That we are all just human beings. It’s okay to not look put together all the time, or to have feelings that aren’t always just happiness. That’s real life. What makes life so beautiful, is that it’s real.
