  • New York City | December, 2016

  • Over Christmas, Justin and I popped over from Philadelphia to New York City for a weekend filled wth art museums, Jewish and Chinese eateries, and other wanderings.

  • Museum Hack at the de Young

  • "Imagine your drunk best friend," said Casey, " crossed with a well-researched museum docent." So described the kind of tone promised by Museum Hack in its alternative, modern museum tours. I was excited to test out one of these "Un-Highlights" tours when they offered me a pair of media tickets. Gra[...]
  • Yosemite | Rainy Day Beauty

  • I stood on the side of the road, the mist rolling gently through the mountains before me. Calmness. Gratitude. I had never been so glad to see a rainy day. Normally people are disappointed when rain pervades their Yosemite trip. You might normally hope for sunny skies or a classic golden hour and a [...]

  • 12 Hours in Boston

  • This was a super quick visit to Boston. We drove about seven hours from Buffalo, since Justin had to be in Cambridge for work on Monday. We arrived in Cambridge around 2am and left again that evening to drive another five hours back to Philadelphia. Whirlwind trip, but still wonderful for me anyway![...]
  • San Francisco Bay Area | Summer, 2016

  • Los Angeles Art Adventures

  • For the two days after Ellie's birthday, I wandered around Los Angeles having little art adventures. I visited two of the MOCA museums (there are 4 locations total); The Broad; the brand new Skyslide 70 floors in the air; and a couple cute shops too. We kick it off with the MOCA Geffen by Little Tok[...]

This Chicago trip I got to attend a wedding; photograph an engagement; check out two art museums; and hang out with old friends, three of whom also just happened to be in town for unrelated reasons that weekend. See some favorite snapshots below. [...]
