New York, NY ~ These photos were taken in 2015. I was thrilled to see the museum, but I was far more excited to see the Bjork exhibit on display that summer. Sadly, photos were not allowed for most of her exhibit, but I did manage to get one set. Elvis Costello, another all time favorite, also made the cut. Good times!

Tuscon, AZ ~ San Xavier Mission is a historic landmark located on the Tohono O’odham Nation San Xavier Indian Reservation, 9 miles south of downtown Tucson, Arizona. These photos are of the surrounding grounds. After visiting the mission, you can take a walk up the hill to view the grotto, or visit the gift shop and food stand across the street.
Washington, D.C. ~ If you are in the D.C. area, you should stop by the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. The onsite Pavilion Café isn’t too shabby either. My favorite sculpture has to be the “Entrance to the Paris Metro” by Hector Guimard. The Typewriter Eraser is also pretty cool.
