I’ve been exploring Houston, Texas for ten months as of today. Being away from everything that is familiar to me has its challenges, but I’m managing quite well. Slowly I’ve gotten back into hobbies I’d once abandoned, like reading. Right now I’m reading, “Year Of Yes” by Shonda Rhimes. “Yes” is a word I don’t say often, but I’m listening to Shonda and have added it back to my vocabulary.
This weekend I promised myself that I’d get out of my comfort zone and do some things that I’ve been saying, “no” to lately. I went to a party, met some nice people, danced and had a great time. I stayed out super late which made it hard for me to get up Sunday morning, but I had another obligation.
I’m usually the person behind the camera taking food pics and shooting other people. When a camera is aimed my way I still smile hard and say “cheese” like a kid on picture day. I prefer candid photos, but I’ve been practicing for this day. I am now the subject.
My bestie and I checked out The Whimsy World with my God-daughter in tow. The Whimsy World is located at 16160 City Walk, Houston TX 77479. It’s an art exhibit by Shelby Nicole running from March 25-April 28th. It features various rooms and areas with picturesque art installations. We took full advantage and even managed to get the baby to cooperate for a few snaps. Here are a few of the pictures we took.
