A week ago I went out to the Huntington Library to see a couple of Civil War exhibits. I really enjoy history and the Huntington always has amazing shows. There were a lot of handwritten letters and journals, printed broadsides and documents, and photographs. Going between the exhibits is also special, because you get to walk through the gardens. Below are some photos from my trip.
In addition, I decided to adopt a rescue dog. I've had many pets in my time (dogs, cats, birds, fish, bunnies... not all at the same time, of course), but I've been pet-less since my cat Nimrod died a year and a half ago. There's a great pet store/dog adoption store near me on Fairfax Ave and I met up with the cutest little poodle-mix named Maya who had been rescued from an LA animal shelter and the rest is history! She's really sweet and loves everybody. I'm including a couple of photos of her, too.
Hope your year is going well and that you are anticipating good things in the future.
