i heart ocAs you’ve already know, we {heart} OC in a big, pink, puffy heart kinda way. But we know we aren’t the only ones. So, once a week we’re asking our readers to tell us (& you) why they {heart} OC. Maybe it’s a specific attraction or restaurant. Perhaps is just the laid back way of life. Or, maybe it’s all about the Dole Whip on a hot, sunny day. Whatever it is, we want to know, & we figured we’d bring you along for the ride.

Meet Marcy Massura. She is a humorist, writer and photographer who is a third-generation Orange County native. She also has two shorter people that call her mom on a regular basis. She loves to chat about all things falsely defined as glamorous on her blog The Glamorous Life.

Orange County is one of those unique locales that is known all the world over, thanks to famous places like Disneyland and pseudo drama like OC Housewives. But OC has so much more to offer than those aspects and Here are just a FEW of my favorite things.

1.       History: OC has a unique history with a very planned and deliberate citrus, avocado and olive farms that generated charming bustling downtown areas. My most favorite? Downtown Orange (but we have many others too!)

2.       Nature: Sure we have our fair share of cement covered strip malls, but really from the beach to Modjeska Canyon- we have tons of nature at our fingertips

3.       Art: We are a creative group here. From artsy areas like Laguna to amazing museums like OCMA we know how to get creative.

4.       Size: OC has a bigger population than over 17 US states! That makes us deserving of our own way of doing things…

5.       Silliness: Maybe it is the weather, or maybe it is our pioneering spirit- but OC people embrace their unique lifestyles. And I love that.

So there you have it. A few reasons I love this place. And you should too…after all Orange County is the perfect place to really juice life for all its got.
