At Long Last! The Hollywood Sign Trail Reopens http://homebodyinmotion.com/hollywood-sign-trail-reopens/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/hollywood-sign-trail-reopens/#comments Thu, 08 Jan 2015 22:48:42 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1813 My very favorite hike in Los Angeles is the Hollywood Sign trail.

Happy Hanukkah! (And the Gifts I’m Getting for the Twins Slash Myself) http://homebodyinmotion.com/hanukkah-gifts/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/hanukkah-gifts/#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 22:05:10 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1777 It’s babies’ first Hanukkah around here this week, and I’m feeling very jolly.
