I ♥ Brio Art | Jan/Feb 2014

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation_speed="faster" css_animation_delay="0"]© www.brioart.comWow, I feel like it's been forever since I put up a personal post.  I apologize.  Life has been a whirl-wind of travel and excitement this last month.  I can't even describe how happy my heart is.  I keep waiting for the next day knowing it maybe just a normal day yet once again I'm beyond happy.  So let's start with my first trip of the year, NYC.

NYC

It was a last minute trip and I was so excited to see an old client and photograph their newborn daughter.  I booked the trip only one week prior and made a last minute hotel reservation.  The session when absolutely wonderful, baby E was awake for part of the session and then gave us some precious sleeping photos as well.  I could just see the love all over mom & dad's faces.  It still puts a smile on my face.  I can only hope that when my day comes to have a family I will radiate just as much love and happiness as I saw in their home.  After this amazing session I was pumped to go see another past client at the Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.  Her husband plays for the team so of course I was rooting super hard for them ... and they won!  I heard all about their move to NYC and how different is was than other states where he has played.  The atmosphere of NYC is like no other.  I also learned that you drink beer out of straws, interesting ... I'm kinda a fan now :)  And to top off the end of the game I was driven home, slight detour though time square so I could see it all lit up at night.  C & B you two are absolutely wonderful, thank you, I had a blast!

After a wonderful day I celebrated with a few cocktails at the hotel bar and as luck would have it I met a new friend.  More on that later.  Let's just say January in NYC was a start to a VERY good 2014!

AUSTIN

So here's the "more" ....  My new friend lives in Austin and invited me down for a warm get away.  ( This is after he spent 9 days in MPLS and even shoved my un-kept drive way, what can I say ... I don't like to shovel).  I happily agreed, the thought of warm weather and more time with him sounded perfect.  I can not express how much I enjoyed my time there.  From the wonderful walking trails, kayaking, poolside drinks to downtown night life I think I'm in love with AUSTIN.  I even hiked up to the top of Enchanted Rock, wow what a view!  So if any of you have been watching my instagram feed, you know what's been going on.  :)

Next Up

Next up is a fantastic trip to Mexico with my BFF Poly!  We plan to soak up some delicious sun rays and get in a fun photoshoot on the beach.  Wait til you see these "trash the dress" photos!  I may even spend a few hours of business planning but we will see.  The pina colada's and poolside might be more inciting than my laptop.

In Conclusion

I want to thank everyone for being a part of my life, you truly make it fun and put a smile on my face.  I am a very luck girl and I appreciate all of you so much.  I can't wait to see what the rest of 2014 will bring because dang .... Jan & Feb have been out of this world!  Til next time, CHEERS![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Any given day you can find me sipping a mimosa with friends, planning my next travel, or redesigning an old home.
