Or course, all our major plans for 2020 were canceled. Like our June trip to Peru and a family visit to Paris to see Henri’s grandparents. But, what really led us to the beachside town of Carlsbad? A restaurant called Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers. A basic name? Yes, but the burgers are so good! We […]
Like the rest of the world our travel plans for 2020 were canceled. I couldn’t take much more of being home and to be honest, I was feeling major burnout from working remotely. I knew I needed a few days to disconnect and get outside. Luckily for me, I live in California which is home […]

A city with great architecture, food, comedy, and shopping…count me in.
After a long week at work I consider myself lucky that going to the beach on the weekend is an option. We are totally beach bums in my house. I love getting up and going straight to the beach, getting a coffee, or brunch and then reading on the sand. It’s one of my easy […]
