ShareLiving the local life in Santa Barbara while I house-sit definitely has it’s perks.  But the fact that I once again was present in town for the celebrated sidewalk chalk drawings of the I Madonnari exhibition in Santa Barbara was no coincidence, as it always falls on the weekend nearest this same friend’s birthday.

Never.  Until this last week when I was enticed to venture farther north in my trusty little Prius to attend a wine-tasting ocean view tweetup at the lovely […]

ShareI grew up in west L.A. Good, bad and ugly, one of the good-est aspects of this childhood locale was it’s proximity to Santa Barbara. It’s hard to know how many people have heard of this gem of Southern California. I mean, I believe it’s fairly well known;  If for no other reason than the […]
