It took me 4 years to get to the “new’ Barnes Foundation Museum in Center City Philadelphia, within walking distance of our Rittenhouse Square apartment. In 2010, we moved […]

Palm Springs, California from Palm Canyon

December is when I start thinking about my February “get me outta here” winter escape to somewhere warm from frigid Philadelphia. One option is sunny southern California. For those looking for a more homey alternative to a hotel stay for their winter getaway, one possibility is Palm Springs vacation rentals. As the wind chill hovers at 19 […]

Skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Waterfront, New York City

I’m a little late to this week’s challenge because I spent last weekend in New York City, a/k/a the Big Apple, Gotham, the city that never sleeps. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) When I finally put my micron felt tip pens and pencils to paper, I found that I still am obsessed […]
