So a few months ago, I thought about taking Jules to Niagara Falls, because he’s never been. I got a bunch of plans together and then my parents wanted to jump in on the fun. So I thought, why not? We all piled into the car, with MHB (my 87 year old Grandmother) in tow and away we went. Continue reading “On The Road”
Well, well, well, look who hasn’t written anything since May?! I’ve got to be better. I’ve done a few things since then and have had plenty to write about and I’ve written nada. Let’s remedy that.
Yesterday, I had the privilege of hanging out with some amazing alpacas. I’ve been obsessed with llamas and alpacas for ages, and I finally got to interact with them! Continue reading “Alpaca Fun”
Yesterday I ventured out to see a solo exhibition of the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat. I will say, I am not a super fan of his work, but overall enjoyed the experience. Continue reading “Visiting Basquiat”
There is a new Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum . As a member, I was able to check it out a day early. If possible, it always helps to be a member at the museums you frequent. 1) early access to cool exhibitions and 2) tickets even when the event has sold out to the public. Right now, the Kahlo exhibit tickets are sold out but members can get them. Continue reading “Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving”
So after having a blast at the Museum of Ice Cream San Francisco, I jumped at the chance to visit the newest version, Miami. Tickets were easier to purchase and surprisingly they didn’t sell out very fast. I procured tickets for a weekend in January (I’m behind on posting, I know) and then got on to finding plane tickets. I was in dire need of a mini vacation and recruited a friend to tag along.

In November, when I went to my aunt’s wedding, I also arranged tickets to visit the Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco. I missed my chance on the original in New York City. By the time I had heard about it, it was over. Then this year they opened one in Los Angeles. Yet again, I missed my chance because it had sold out by the time the news reached my ears. Fortunately I had an epiphany and I signed up for the newsletter. This enabled me to know when new tickets were being sold AND where the next museum would pop up. So the next time, I would be ready… Continue reading “Museum of Ice Cream San Francisco”
During November 2017, we flew back to the West Coast for my aunt’s wedding. She chose beautiful Sea Ranch, CA and it was the perfect locale. We flew into San Francisco and drove a few hours north to get there. The drive was scenic, as it took you north, along the coast. As beautiful as it was, it was a nerve wracking drive. There were many spots on the road with no guardrails and just cliff straight down to the water. It was a very thrilling ride up, and, fortunately we had the sunlight most of the way there.

The ferry to Orcas Island was delightfully simple. We drove our car into the bottom of the boat and made our way to a sitting area. The sun was shining through the window, creating a little heated area in our booth. It was soothing. Continue reading “Orcas Island and So Long Seattle”
Our last Seattle stop was a proper viewing of Pike Place. The last time we went was the weekend, and it was crowded with people. Jules and I decided to go during the week, and there were about half the amount of people. We parked the car and explored. There were lots of restaurants and stalls set up with people seeking their wares. Food, fish, trinkets, clothing, etc.
