Snowboarding in Park City, Utah

Even though the blustery conditions at Park City Mountain only allowed for one day of boarding, we did get to enjoy a few of the town's other charms.

Dinner at Chimayo on Main Street is a must! I've never had Mexican/mountain fusion and it was out of this world. (Hello, Sugarcane Elk marinated in coffee glaze.) Java Cow, also on Main has the frothiest Mocha's for your caffeine fix. I sipped mine while browsing the art galleries. Check out the Phoenix Gallery for mixed media artists, including my new fave, Denise Duong. And don't miss the Images of Nature Gallery featuring unbelievable images from Thomas Mangelsen.

Despite the disappointing weather, I loved being in Park City for the weekend. There's just something about sipping red wine in a hot tub under a dark sky and flurry of snowflakes that let's the body breathe!

The Art of Being Tim Burton

Those of you lucky enough to be in NYC over the next couple of months must make a stop at MOMA to view the 'Tim Burton Exhibition'. "It brings together over seven hundred examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, moving image works, concept art, storyboards, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera."
I go gaga for any and everything Tim Burton so, while I probably won't make it to the big apple before the exhibition ends on April 26, I can peruse MOMA's interactive website, complete with Danny Elfman-esque theme music.

Ifs, Ands, or Butts

Here are few adorable photos celebrating our behinds. Why? Because we really should appreciate every little curve of our bodies. Men do. Bottoms up, ladies!
