After a few non-stop weeks of work and a looming big birthday, I knew I needed some time away from LA to re-coop, redefine and reconfigure everything I had been doing. In all honesty, I had been so busy, I hadn't had a chance to work on the three things that I had sworn would be my main focus for the year. So off I went to Porto, a town that my mother swore was her most favorite place to visit in the world. Well, we all know how big the world is...but I have a lot of faith in my mother's tastes...so here I am. And I'm so grateful I stopped by, Porto is truly lovely. And you must know, that I say that after a week of 80% rain, so there was barely any amazing weather, and yet even with the rain and bone-chilling cold, I persisted and fell in love with this gothic city. Which got me thinking, why is it so much easier to fall in love with a city, and so difficult to fall in love with a man? Perhaps, if the man offered me the perfect combination of gorgeous viewpoints, history, mystery, fun and delicious food. So, I guess I should be asking, why can't the men I date be more like Porto??
