Made in Hollywood in Santa Barbara

Last Saturday I drove up to Santa Barbara with a friend to visit the city. We wandered around the wharf and enjoyed a lovely walking tour which highlighted the mission-style architecture and the ubiquitous red-tile roofs.

One of my favorite stops of the day was at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on State Street. We saw both the Picasso on Paper exhibit as well as the sublime Made in Hollywood photography exhibit.

I'm so glad you went to Santa Barbara! Hope you had a good weekend there. I'm so jealous that you are in CA this month. I miss it so much, especially the weather. It is still so hot here and with this extra 25 pounds or so, it's killing me!
What did you decide about the LA agencies? I am also changing agencies down here. STRESSFUL!
