I think this might be the longest stretch of time I’ve been “home” in years. I wrote home in quotes because, while I escaped my physical house for a few weekends in the Poconos, I haven’t left the state of Pennsylvania since early February. As we continue to find things to do locally and mostly outdoors, I was intrigued to read about a new exhibit in a nearby town in collaboration with the Michener Art Museum.

As people continue to seek outdoor activities, the museum is going al fresco with its free outdoor exhibition, “Paint Dtown.” The Michener team selected 16 works from its permanent collection to be reproduced, with the reproductions strategically placed throughout Doylestown, Pennsylvania. A digital map highlighting all the locations can be found on the Michener website, and the exhibit is scheduled through October 2020. I can’t wait to check it out soon!

Hotel Mousai Review

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: Climbing along the coast, I was trying to snap pictures of the cool-blue Puerto Vallarta waters outside my car window (I know, it never works) when we started winding along stone walls draped in jungle-like foliage. Annoyed my view was blocked, I looked around to see where we were just as we were parking at Hotel Mousai — I audibly gasped. The all-glass, chic and incredibly grand entrance was so well-secluded, it somehow snuck up on me.
