About Me

red lips

I’m a 30-something living in La Jolla, Ca. Along with Valentino, my much-adored dog, I enjoy making a mess in the kitchen, sipping wine, bumming around on the beach and discovering what’s new and fun to do in America’s Finest City.

I’d love to say I’m a native San Diegan but, alas, that is not true. In my lifetime I have lived in California, Minnesota (pronounced: mini-sohda), Arizona and California again. My friends will tell you that after a little wine you can definitely hear the Midwestern accent emerge. Ooh yah.

I’m a Wildcat for life. A Torero by way of law school. And a Minnesota Vikings fan until the day I die.

Go Cats!

On any given day you will find the following music on my ipod: Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond and Journey. My musical taste is beyond refined.

And as for my best friend, Valentino? He’s an Australian Shepherd that I adopted. He’s incredibly smart, and incredibly spoiled.

We lead a happy life.

  1. Your posts always put a smile on my face:) There are no words to express how much I enjoy them and now that I have a blog of my own, I can actually comment, yay!

  2. I can’t help but notice, my name is Andrea Valentino and I’m from La Jolla, small world!
