Temporary Goodbyes at LACMA

School already started for me back in August, but for Justin, school is just beginning. He headed over to the Riverside this past Sunday to prepare for school so last Friday was the basically last chance we were able to spend a whole day with one another before college officially begins for him. Riverside is a short forty-five minutes to an hour away from where we're from so no complaining about distance, but we still wanted to make our last "summer" day together some what special. He's never been to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) so we decided to make a quick trip over there right after my Friday afternoon class. The great thing about LACMA (besides the art and environment itself) is that there's free admissions to Los Angeles County residents on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays after 3 PM, so if you're ever around the area, make a visit over there! LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States holding over 120,000 art pieces all the way down from history to recent/present/modern works and is an extremely popular place to visit if you're ever in the Los Angeles area. You can plan an easy trip there with information from their site! (Here.) Also another suggestion, if you're free on the weekend, they have jazz nights every Friday starting at 6PM. It's a great opportunity to lay out a blanket, prepare some snacks, and listen to some great music in a relaxed environment.  I'm really bummed that we missed Helen Pashgian's Light Invisible (which I really enjoyed the last time I visited) but nevertheless it was a great time.

Thanks for reading, always a joy reading comments and hearing feedback. I think the next post will be my first post on a recipe! If you have any suggestions on what you'd like to see, I'd love to hear it.
Have a great day, you.
