I am back home in Venice Beach and it feels wonderful. I’ve been catching up with old friends, taking long walks and going on much needed hikes to clear my mind. Really just being in the moment as much as I can – that’s the goal. After months and months on the road, it feels delicious. And speaking of delicious, I went to dinner at The Tasting Kitchen the other night with two of my fave girlfriends. First, can I just say I love being able to walk to the best eats in town. But The Tasting Kitchen is tops. If you haven’t tried it and you are over this way – yum – I highly recommend. They do the most scrumptious brunches too. To tell the truth, some of the desserts could seriously throw me off my game if I’m not careful. But seriously go if you can. The antipasto, the dinner with added cheese course – so good. Not to mention the wine list is fabulous. It’s the real deal. And it’s a lovely place to meet beautiful friends like the ones who have missed me almost as much as I’ve missed them!
