It’s Bloomin’ Cherries!

It’s Bloomin’ Cherries! »

It’s not bloomin’ cherries as in cherries off the vine, freshly pressed in juice, or tucked between flaky, buttery crusts. It’s the Cherry Blossom Festival at Descanso Gardens and the beauty and aroma may make you swoon! Tree after tree will be popping with pink cherry blossoms. But that’s not all....

Favorite Pastime: Shopping for Books

Our no. 1 favorite pastime is reading. We will forego swimming, dining, hiking, driving, playing, partying—almost anything—in order to tuck up on the couch or get comfy on the patio, with no one to interrupt, until we read “The End.” It’s our bliss, our heaven on Earth.
