It’s hard to believe that I’ve been blogging for 6 years, but I still love it as much now as when I started!  Blogging has given me the opportunity to share my thoughts, experiences and voices with family and friends online and in social media.  It’s also given me the chance to travel and make […]...

I LOVE to eat crab!  Living on the Central Coast of California, you think I would have it a lot, right?  Not so.  It’s kind of outside our budget on a regular basis, but this was a special getaway weekend for Frank and I and we decided to splurge.  And oh my gosh – was […]...

As a blogger, I have the opportunity to test drive a lot of different cars.  I love driving, so test-driving cars is definitely right up my alley!  I recently got to test-drive one of my favorite cars – the 2014 KIA Cadenza.  Oh my gosh, talk about driving in luxury.  This car rocked! I was […]...

Frank and I travel down to Los Angeles a lot!  We’ve found that sometimes it’s just easier (and more cost-effective) to take a taxi to get where we’re going.  Whether we’re heading to a baseball game, a concert or a press event, it can get expensive (and frustrating) driving around and searching for parking in […]...

  Oops! We did it again! It’s only been 7 weeks since Arleena and I last visited Murray Hill (otherwise known as the Unnamed Hill)/ Reservoir Canyon Trail. I cannot believe we chose to do the other side – and on a sweltering 90-degree sunny day no less! The last time we ventured up this […]...

This week Arleena and I revisited Cerro San Luis (or San Luis Mountain). Back in week 12, Arleena and I made a wrong turn on this trail that only got us to the M on this mountain which about ¾ of the way up to the top. Needless to say we were a bit bummed […]...

Amsterdam, Berlin, […]...
