I’ve been quiet recently. Why?
I treated myself to an extended vacation!
It’s so nice being able to up and leave whenever I please. I’ve lived in Florida for nearly 20 years, but I find myself taking a lot of our state for granted. So, on a whim, I decided to spend a few weeks exploring.
During that tour, a few of you were VERY lucky to book sessions with me— here’s looking at you, V and K! Often times clients ask me if I want a gift before the session. V got it right with a bottle of Dom Perignon…. I’ll never turn down champagne.
My first stop was Saint Augustine. I hadn’t been in about ten years and absolutely loved soaking up the Old Florida atmosphere. I spent the first night exploring the city’s gorgeous craft bars. As a cocktail enthusiast, I *have* to plug The Ice Plant. The building dates to 1927 and has been meticulously preserved. If you want to drink like me, you’ll order the Exit to Eden: a perfect blend of dry gin, red bell and poblano peppers, and lemon.
I also enjoyed exploring the Medieval Torture Museum (how could I not?!) The private collection was much larger and more comprehensive than I’d anticipated. Another night I took a ghost tour. I didn’t sight any haunts, but I did capture a mysterious shadow puppet cast against Ponce DeLeon.
My next destination took me across the state to Miami. I *love* Miami and was lucky to spend a few months exploring the area in 2013. Naturally, I had to spend some time in Wynwood.
he famous Wynwood Walls are an incredible celebration of street art and a must see. Here’s my sweaty face marring the view. We were also lucky enough to wander into a drag show at Gramps one evening, which was a pleasant surprise.
After indulging my inner hipster, I relocated to a gorgeous penthouse condo in Brickell. While my home in Orlando is nothing to sneeze at, I sure could get used to this view. Now accepting applications for Miami area mortgage co-signers.
Altogether, I had an incredible time and returned home refreshed. I didn’t advertise sessions very much as this was very much a personal trip and I wanted to focus on deep relaxation. Perhaps next time I’ll offer more. My next planned trip is Las Vegas for AVN 2019, but I’ll be sure to post if I end up on a tour before then.
In the meantime, I have a fistful of custom clips to catch up on. Those who are owed will receive them by the beginning of next week.
