+Sophi Newman: I had no idea the book was 15 years old! Definitely stands the test of time. Either that or I'm still (very) young at heart :-)

Beauty and the Beast

Just got back from Vegas (phew). In between cards, craps and nightclubs, I took a moment to photograph the Fiori Di Como — an incredible glass chandelier by Dale Chihuly — hanging in the Bellagio lobby. No matter how many times I visit Vegas, I’m always amazed by how it blends beauty with crazy :-)

h/t +Brian Matiash for reminding me to “Look up” every once in a while (http://goo.gl/HJv7Qa).

#AutoAwesome Aquarium

I visited Monterey yesterday, and (of course) stopped by the +Monterey Bay Aquarium. I took some videos of my favorite exhibits, and #AutoAwesome  gifted me this movie. I’m really digging the dramatic soundtrack :-)

Stained glass half full

At a family wedding right now, and found this stained glass window while exploring the chapel.

Peanut butter and Jellies

Two of my favorite things about visiting Cannery Row in Monterey, CA: peanut butter fudge, and the jelly fish exhibit at the +Monterey Bay Aquarium. I ate the fudge :-) and took a few pictures of the jellies.
