As I posted earlier I am moving back to Massachusetts in just about two weeks(!). One of the best parts of the move is that I will be driving cross country with my parents for two weeks, covering a total of about 5,000 miles. I always knew that when I moved back I would want … More A Dream Road Trip
Ever since I discovered podcasts a couple years ago, I’ve almost entirely stopped listening to the radio and music in the car and on my daily walks with Scout. Since then, I’ve acquired quite a few podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis (read: entirely too many). In case anyone is completely out … More My Go-To Podcasts
The Getty Villa, located off Highway 1 in Malibu, is the second location opened by the Getty Trust exclusively devoted to showcasing ancient Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art. The Villa is on a much smaller scale with most of the art held in a former modest-sized mansion turned museum. Some highlights of the Villa are … More Getty Villa
When I decided to move a little over a year ago, I made a list of places that I wanted to see and travel to before I made the final move. While I wasn’t able to cross off all the things on that list, the last trip that I took before our road trip (more … More Hearst Castle and San Luis Obispo
When I first moved to Southern California 4 years ago, I never thought it would be a permanent move. I loved living in Boston and would miss it but the opportunity to live across the country wasn’t going to come around often. It was the perfect time; I had just graduated from Physical Therapy school, … More A Big Move
Of all the places to visit in Los Angeles, the museums, restaurants, exhibits, theme parks, and much more, the Getty Center by far tops my list. It is my favorite place in LA. In fact, I visited it for the first time on only my second trip to California to see my sister, way back … More Getty Center
While I’ve never been a big traveler, I have taken many trips in my lifetime. And on those trips, I’ve come home with lots of different souvenirs and trinkets; something to remember my trip by. There were keychains, some t-shirts, a few magnets, among others. But it wasn’t until this past year when I made … More Do You Collect Things When You Travel?
As I’ve gotten older, I have come to realize how much of an introvert I am (see this test). And with that, I tend to be a bit of a “no” person. This is not to be confused with the opposite of being a “yes man”. It’s not that I never say yes; I am … More Saying Yes
When I tell most people that I’m going to the Huntington Library they give me a funny look and ask why I would go to a public library (assuming I’m going to the Huntington Beach one). Well, the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is anything but a public library. I don’t often … More Huntington Library and Gardens
Sorry for the radio silence for the past couple weeks. I was in the middle of moving from my apartment and into a temporary living situation with my sister and brother-in-law (and the cutest niece ever). All before making a final move back to the East Coast. I’ll be writing more about that move later. … More I Moved!
