Glendale, CA

Today I went shopping at The Americana at Brand, a fairly new shopping center in Glendale. Adorable. I would recommend checking it out during the week as it gets very crowded on the weekends. The highlight of the afternoon was lunch at Granville Cafe. Very cozy. Great location for a date, a business lunch, or cocktails with the girls. I am a very picky eater and I could not decide what to order-everything sounded great. I decided on a lighter option as yesterday was Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed my angel hair and artichoke pasta. I also had a taste of the chicken marsala, which I'll probably get when I undoubtedly return. :)

P.S. I will try to bring my camera next time.

York, ME

I recently traveled to York, ME where I stayed at The Inn at Tanglewood Hall, a local B&B. The pictures do not do it justice as I am still becoming acquainted with my new camera.

The inn is near the beach, shopping, and some fantastic restaurants.

I was crazy about Dockside, a restaurant only a short drive away. Great view, ambiance, and the mushroom risotto was excellent.

All in all the perfect romantic getaway or peaceful retreat!
