Are you as in love with this sign as we are? Admittedly we have an affinity about this sign that makes us both Oooo and Ahhhh when, on a clear day, it's in plain view. It has a meaning of hope, passion and living your dreams and gives a feeling that if you just keep at it, you can reach your shining star.
Oftentimes when we're driving down the street we'll both look up and shout, "the Hollywood sign! There it is", like tourists who just spotted a celebrity.
Our beloved sign is now undergoing a much needed facelift. In a partnership with Sherwin Williams, the Hollywood Sign Trust is getting a makeover, a new paint job. It's expected to take 8-10 weeks starting today and use over 250 gallons of paint.
