a little dose will do ya...

// photo's by the fashion gal //

living on the coast typically results in pretty great weather year-round. however when a stubborn marine layer rolls in and thick clouds cover the sky {like a blanket} you begin to think of what inside-activities you can do. surprisingly, (to most of my friends) this is my favorite kind of weather. big grey cloudy clouds... yes please(!) i LOVE throwing on a cozy sweater, making a huge cup of tea, and conquering unfinished projects all day long. sounds like paradise to me! but since the fireman and i had the day off together, we decided to get out of the house and head into the city for a little dose of culture & art! so off to the Getty Museum we went! 

**a little note: below are the photo's i took throughout our day of adventure. it was an overall success and we both look forward to going back and checking out more of the exhibits {the exhibit on Cuba was awesome!}... and of course the amazing architecture and beautiful gardens!
***another little note: i personally LOVE the two paintings above. it's currently my new computer screensaver.

our little day {at} the Getty Museum...

{nothing better on a cloudy day}

 CUBA: a Revolutionary Project
// this was a very cool exhibit of Cuba... with true photographs that really told a story of Cuban history, it's culture, and it's people. this was the fireman's highlight for the day //

the flowers & the art
// and of course the colorful paintings & serene gardens were my {absolute} favorite part! the fireman was very patient while i took each one of these photo's... i think he understands now (after 3 years) that i kinda love taking photo's of flowers. he's a keeper. //

// the sun began to peek through the clouds later in the day... so we got to really enjoy the spectacular views of our BIG city, LA //


what do YOU enjoy doing on a cloudy day?(?)?

Those paintings are so cool! And I'd happily spend a cloudy day in an art museum -- or probably any day, really : )

I am so the same! I love Summer, (my favourite season is Autumn though) but I adore it when Winter roles around and I can have long hot baths, lounge around in oversized jumpers and be productive inside watching bet heavy rain fall oustide - nothing better :) oh... with a cup of tea of course. Your photos from your day off are gorgeous. The exhibition of Cuba would have been one I'dve love to have seen but living in Australia I don't think I'll manage to get to it :P
