A weekend in Sacramento

I spent last weekend at home in Sacramento, and it was simply glorious. I booked the ticket as a sort of belated Mom's birthday slash early Mother's Day present: essentially, a trip home to hang out with my parents and their dog. Even though I was...

The best list of beach reads

It should be no secret that I love to read: it's been my favorite hobby since I was a kid. I think there's an element of only child-ness in there: I love how easy it is to amuse yourself when you're lost in a good book, no matter where you are. Like...

Postcard from Malibu

Malibu is one of those words that evokes a certain image: even though I'd never been there before, I've always imagined it as gorgeous, ritzy, upscale, beachy. It's often name-dropped in celebrity gossip mags: a place of glass-walled, beachfront,...
