Last week, we joined the party at Night on Broadway! It was an unexpected night out with friends, walking the streets of downtown. It was impressive to see so many people out and about-- eating, talking, and just having fun. There were so many interesting things to look at, especially the art!

This weekend, I spent a morning at Descanso Gardens for Museums Free-for-All Day. Even though we made plans, there were many surprises throughout the day as God was ultimately in control. We arrived at the perfect time for Invertigo Dance Theatre's lively performance and sampled lovely teas at the Camellia & Tea Festival. And as we walked around, the sun came out and shared its warmth with us! It was such a fun time exploring and admiring the beauty of His creation throughout the gardens.

"A few nice words can help a person more than you think."

The last few days have been all sorts of crazy. So I was really thankful for an opportunity to go out this afternoon and enjoy some treats at Cafe Dulce (our second time this week)! There are so many unique doughnut flavors to choose from-- like Fruity Pebbles and Bacon! Plus, there are some good options for drinks as well. Happy Friday!

Life can be a mess sometimes, but look on the bright side!

When I first heard about The Nethercutt Collection, I had my doubts. After all, my interest in automobiles and musical instruments is minimal at best. But she insisted that we would love it and so we made reservations for a visit. And as soon as I stepped foot into the museum, I fell in love with the collection! Even more impressive is the fact that all the mechanical musical instruments and automobiles are fully functional and in working condition. It was fun wandering all over the place, taking pictures without restriction, and getting up close to the collection. ♥

Plus, make friends with the docents! They are incredibly knowledgeable and quite fun to talk to.

Cold winter nights call for hot pot and warm hugs all around.

The past year started off with so much promise until it all came tumbling down. It was a year filled with much joy, but also much sorrow. Too many farewells, and not enough hugs. Too many plans, and not enough rest. Too many fears, and not enough risks. So hopefully things will look up for 2016! Cheers to a new year and new adventures! ♥

We caught up over breakfast at Penelope's, a hidden spot away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
