The Gamble House


The Gamble House in Pasadena, California, which is the quintessential American Arts and Crafts style architectural home. You can check out there website, here. The house was also the home of Dr. Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy. Actually a few of the homes in the "Back to the Future" trilogy are in Pasadena or South Pasadena. I visited the Gamble House and enjoyed my tour of the Craftsman style home, I hope you enjoy my photos. No photos were allowed to be taken inside the home.

Deer Park Monastery


I went to Deer Park Monastery in San Diego to meditate, get grounded and try to figure out where I'm going in life after this year has been one of the most difficult in my life. I had gone to the Monastery in 2011 and it really helped balance my emotional state. Everyone there is dealing with their own issues and it's a calming, silent retreat where you can really try to find yourself and I've been feeling pretty lost after my entire support system has disappeared this year. I don't know if I'll ever feel as good and supported as I did last year, but I have faith that the universe will help me out... I hope. I didn't take many photos, because I was meditating and working on myself.

Try the World Marrakesh Review


I was so excited to get the Try the World Marrakesh Box! I'm excited to try the Villa Jerada Kefta Rub, I did try the Dip & Scoop Culinary Argan Oil with bread and wow! It was so good! The flavor is fantastic, I'm already half way through the bottle. I'll need to find a find a recipe for the Titan Sardines, As for the Moroccan Couscous and Onion and Tomato Couscous Sauce, I am so excited to try these. I'm really happy that I can make an actual meal with my Try the World food. It's not just random snacks and candy. Also, the Moroccan Orange Peel Cookies by Orientines are delicious and while the packaging took up a lot of the box, the cookies were really tiny, that's my only complaint, but that has nothing to do with Try the World company.

Green Thumb


I bought some more plants because gardening teaches patience, and helps me become more nurturing and it's a relaxing hobby. Granted, I know nothing about gardening, I just water and leave them along for the most part. I hope you enjoy my "new plant haul". I have already gardened them but I'm waiting for them to flouris before I take more photos.
