Texas Flood – My Heart Broken into a Million Pieces

I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that I’ve taken quite the break from writing and photography. It has been over two years since my soul shattered into a million pieces and I’m just starting to be okay with talking publicly about what happened to Shaun and me Memorial Day 2015.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans – I’m Hooked on NOLA

As January is coming to a close and Austin is already seeming like it is courting Springtime, I'm starting to get the pangs of FOMO as I think back on one of the rowdiest and adventurous experiences I've had - Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

"I would still like to take you to New Orleans for Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras." Shaun whispered into my ear while snuggled up in bed.

My First Gallery Showing – First Friday, Kansas, MO

The plane rolled up to the jet bridge and I nervously gathered up my carry-ons. I had just arrived in Kansas City, MO and to be quite honest, I didn’t know what to expect.

Endless Summer at Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island

I clasped the blankets closer to my chest as I woke up, shivering. "What the hell is going on?" I wrap myself in a blanket burrito as I slug over to my computer. W-E-A-T-H-E-R.COM - 53 degrees (yes, I'm a weenie). I look outside in horror. Where did my summer go? How is it already… Continue reading Endless Summer at Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island
