Have you checked out my Instagram lately? Especially the one about Florida + Travel? I love photography and since I am always with my iPhone snapping away basically on everything, I should share it on Instagram and with the world.
Every second Saturday of the Month, the art studio that I am a part of will be having an art walk night. Join us if you are in the area from 5pm-10pm. There will be music, wine, mingle with the artists and buy our artworks.

I'm happy to announce that as of today, I have an art studio! I will be joining the Union Artist Studios and can't wait to share more awesome creations! Also, I will be offering workshops/classes from branding your business to taking photographs and of course creating artworks. Stayed tuned!
On October 2nd, my artist friend @dianescire and I participated our first booth at the Koreshan Historical State Park. It was exciting to do this. Especially since we've creating for years and it was time to sell some of our artsy fartsy stuff to the public.
Check out some of the photos and if you are in the area, come and say Hi! Don't forget to support your local farmer's markets, craft fairs and small business. The holidays are just around the corner!
I feel like we are rushing everything lately and cramming so many things together and just not enjoying life how we are suppose to be. It's like we need to get to the finish line before anyone else beats us to it. Why? What for? I know, I feel the same way and sometimes I would like to say - F* It! So, I did. Yesterday. Instead of working or creating more artworks and comparing my art to the rest of the world, I said - F* it! I'm going to the Pool instead. And it was glorious for that brief moment. My question to you is: Do you have a go-to place to relax? Since I live in Florida, I have beaches, the community's pool and natural surroundings to feed my soul. I don't take advantage of it, but I'm going to start.
Here's my unsolicited advice: Take the break, you deserve it. Everything can be done, just pace yourself and once in a while just say F* It! and regroup when your mind, body and soul needs to clear up from junk.

Here's to the little things that we forget to appreciate...
“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.” – Northrup Christiane
Spring is definitely in the air - but living in Florida is more like summer than spring. In the morning and night - that is when it's more noticeable than the day. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets and of course the birds singing makes it very spring(ish).
The best and fast remedy when stressed is to slow down. Photos from the Florida beach when I visited a few weeks ago with some friends. I call it "lets take some photos stress free day"! Enjoy! Not sure who created the mermaid at the beach but kudos to whomever did.
