LA Fleet Week 2019 -The LA Waterfront In San Pedro, California

Hello!  How are you?  Last weekend I attended Fleet Week and it was one of the most memorable events that I have ever experienced.  Have you ever heard of Fleet Week?  This was my first time attending LA Fleet Week and I learned so much.  It was a four day event from August 30th -September 2nd with tours of six Navy ships, the USS Iowa, flyovers, and other military exhibits.  There was also a lot to see in the STEM Village with the battle bot competition, the Navy VR experience, and a way to test your physical abilities in the obstacle course set up outside.  

It also felt good to be able to volunteer on the last day of the event as a way of giving back.  I grew up in this town, attended school here, and still spend a lot of time enjoying the deep friendships that I have developed over the years.  So, giving back in this town just feels right.  The best part of LA Fleet Week was taking the opportunity to meet and thank the brave men and women who serve in our military today.  My dad is a veteran too, and he instilled in us a great sense of respect for military service work and for those individuals who have served.

If  you are free to attend LA Fleet Week next year, I would definitely recommend going for the full four days.  There is so much to see and do, you won't be able to experience it all in just one day.  Hope to see you there next year!

Dining in Style in Los Angeles and Orange County California

Dining with friends is one of my favorite activities. How about you? I had a birthday recently, so I was able to spend some quality time dining with friends. One of the best parts of living in the Los Angeles/ Orange County area is:

1) Trying all of the delicious varieties of food 


2) Appreciating the unique decor of each individual restaurant
