We currently are experiencing some absolutely gorgeous weather over here in LA and I am loving every minute of it! Of course, with all this warm weather I can’t help but want to be outside.

Now that the kiddies are officially on Winter break here in LA, I’ve had to plan a few extra special outing just to keep my little ones from going stir crazy. Although the weather has been pretty cold here, to LA standards, the days have been relatively clear and sunny.

For many years the Point Fermin Lighthouse has been at the top of my list as “one of the places I need to visit.” I have always been interested in history, so naturally I gravitated to this historic structure. Yet having always lived so close, literally down the street, I tended to always put off my visit, until recently. One day, on a whim, I decided to catch a tour not really knowing what I was in store for. Luckily everything worked out well but if you are not the type of person to be so spontaneous, here is what you need to know as a first time visitor.   Continue reading “POINT FERMIN LIGHTHOUSE”

ROCKETSHIP PARK

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetIs it just me, or do any other mothers out there dread hearing: “Mom what are we doing today??” Without fail that is the question I get asked every weekend from my oldest daughter Hayden. I’ll be honest, most of the time my answer is “I don’t know” or even better “It’s too early leave me alone.”
