dog days of summer

It’s getting to be that time of year when summer is slowly ending and fall is fast approaching.  However, there is one accessory that goes with every outfit in every season and that is your favorite four-legged friend!  This is my American Foxhound Soldier, who accompanies me almost every where I go.  Thank you New York City for being so dog friendly!

little red caboose


When you’re driving from Arizona to California it can get a little boring, so when you see a red caboose in the middle of the desert you have to stop and do a photo shoot!

jet planes and jet lag

I know it has been a while since I have done a proper post [my apologies].  I was away for two weeks and in that time I visited two states [Arizona and Cali], five counties [Maricopa, Riverside, San Diego, Orange County, and LA] and nine cities [Scottsdale, Phoenix, Palm Springs, San Diego, Corona, Santa Ana, Hollywood, Seal Beach, and Newport Beach]!  Needless to say I had an absolutely wonderful time visiting family and enjoying the week-long wedding festivities of a good friend.  It takes me time to recoup and get back on track when I return from holiday so please forgive me and I promise to be up and running again soon!  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacations and staycations!

sisters that lunch

My sister brought me to The Herb Box the last time I came to visit and got me hooked! It is by far my favorite lunch spot in Scottsdale (they also have amazing breakfast and dinner).  Be sure to try one of their many ice tea or homemade lemonade selections they are so refreshing and at $3 with unlimited refills it is hard to go wrong.

La Grande Orange [LGO]

I’m having a wonderful time in Phoenix visiting my sister!  One of our favorite things to do when I’m here is going out to eat.  LGO is one of our favorite spots and it is conveniently located a short walk from her house. If you’re ever in Phoenix, Santa Monica, or Pasadena be sure to check it out
