My niece Katy got a trip to Los Angeles for her birthday!  So we flew back to LA from North Carolina the day after Christmas.   We’ve been running her ragged as we like to do with visitors.

We mapped out the usual places to go visit and have been seeing them every day.   The Grove, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Malibu, Santa Monica beach, etc.   One more day to do Hollywood and the things we missed then she’s back to NC.

BUT we are going to Paris at the end of March.  You see I’m taking her for a week.  She wanted to go for her 16th birthday.  So I finagled Spring break, permission from her parents and air miles and we’re going.  She unwrapped hints at Christmas.  French fry ornament, beret, French phrase book and a ticket to Paris.   So fun!   I cannot wait.

Of course we had to go for a beach photo shoot.  She is beautiful and photogenic.  World meet Katy.

So I wanted […]

I was running errands during my lunch break and saw a parking spot right in front so I decided to run in and grab something to go so I could take […]
