I've been gone from this blog for two weeks now.  I flew back home to see my grandmother for her 90th birthday and to babysit my beautiful little niece for a few days.  It was a nice little break and I was so, so excited to see both my grandmother and the baby.

I took a short break last week.  I spent about three days with some family and relaxed a little after my Los Angeles adventure.  

Before my break, though, I took myself to breakfast at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo.  Instagrammers love the Madonna because...

San Diego is one of those places that is famous for its mild, lovely weather.  For the 7 days I was there, it rained 4 days.  I'd planned to stay only 4 days, but since the weather wasn't cooperating, I postponed my trip to LA and stayed longer to enjoy some of that fa...

Palm Springs!  It's been my dream to get to Palm Springs for a while now.  Mostly, I was dying to see some Midcentury Modern architecture in the place where it is most well-known.  I also have an interest in old Hollywood and I know Palm Springs in a fount of great sto...

The Grand Canyon is not what you think.  Yes, it is a canyon.  Yes, it is grand.  However, you cannot even imagine it.  You cannot process it.  It is grander and more unbelievable than probably anything you've seen before.  I still don't think I am convinced of what I...

The same day that temperatures were predicted to be -21 degrees Fahrenheit in Chicago, I was putting my new hiking stick to use by climbing up Airport Mesa in Sedona, Arizona.  It was probably about 62 degrees Fahrenheit.  The sun was shining.  It was pretty glorious....

I'm late with this entry.  I've been moving, moving, moving but also not feeling tip top.  I think, sometimes, that I'm moving way too fast through certain places.  Then, other times, I find myself really enjoying the pace.  I haven't hit any sort of stride, necessaril...

Leaving Marfa, I drove through miles and miles of absolutely miserable desolation.  Only oil derricks and flat, flat.  The one highlight was driving through Wink, Texas where Roy Orbison grew up.  But, don't blink as you drive through might miss it (I've bee...

I'm actively fighting the temptation to write this entire entry as a history of the town of Marfa, TX.  It's a fascinating place and I enjoyed it there so much that when it came time to leave, I was sad.  I didn't want to go (and might not have if not for a service app...

For the last three years, I have spent some time in Austin, TX during the month of January.  In 2017, I was attending my friend J's bachelorette weekend.  In 2018, I was flying in and out of Austin to attend J's sister's wedding.  In 2019, I was there - camping at the...
