where in the world wednesday, santa barbara

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

I’m participating in Classy in Philadelphia’s Where In The World Wednesday! The idea of WITWW is to post a picture of you someplace in the world…it doesn’t have to be somewhere foreign or tropical. Just a picture of you somewhere you consider traveling. As the snow storm makes its way up to Boston today, I […]

movies that move me to travel

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

[From Susie & Mike’s Santa Barbara trip, 2006] I have been trying to make plans to get together with a long lost friend/former co-worker and it has got me thinking about our wine nights, and how much I miss them. On special days after work, I would head over to her apartment and we would […]
