Do LA: Manhattan Beach

About I spent some time in Los Angeles visiting family over the weekend. We took a stroll along Manhattan Beach Pier + watched the sunset. It was pretty awesome. I love downtime outdoors, especially when it’s a good day + there’s a great view. The week gets so busy, it’s important to remember to relax…

I had an awesome day at the United Nations Headquarters in New York! Did you know their budget is $5.5 billion annually?
