We are from Los Angeles, CA. We are both architects always looking to visit the coolest towns and spots on the planet. My husband is a university professor where he teaches architecture design studio, I am a practicing architect and have my own firm. We are not true foodies, but do enjoy a good meal with local flavors and ingredients. We love to be in the city as much as we love to be in the country. Travel and meeting new people are our joies de vivre. We have low-key lifestyle: eat well, sleep well, don't stay up too late, watch an occasional movie, visit museums, enjoy the beaches and mountains, work hard, volunteer when possible, stay humble, pay taxes, try to do the right thing, and know that we have a lot to offer the world, but even more to learn. We do not smoke and do not drink. Instead we have a very spoiled rescue mutt who keeps us grounded. We miss her every minute that we are away from home. Her name is Potato Joe and she will kiss anyone who gives her a bit of affection!
