Walkway to hidden Noguchi Garden from South Coast Plaza

Shopping Outside at Noguchi Garden and South Coast Plaza (Orange County, California)

November 28, 2017

As I frantically scan the internet and virtually shop for cyber Monday deals, I’m wondering how many people truly opted outside for Black Friday?

Car2Go Electric Car envy in San Diego

October 14, 2015

It isn’t hard to find good things to say about Car2Go in Seattle. I think they are the main reason my husband has been able to bike to work for the past couple years because they are so easy to use that they provide a great backup for when he needs a car in the […]

Bottega Louie with kids

When a business treats your kids nicely, they are golden for life (Bottega Louie, Los Angeles)

April 7, 2015

This memory could have ended with that delightfully full feeling you get after you eat a good meal but it’s going to be in my heart for a while.  We were in Los Angeles for a wedding and I’d seen the lovely macarons from Bottega Louie in one of my social media feeds and filed […]
