The Austins - A Cross Country Trip

My hubby and departed Glendale, California at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 23rd. We said goodbye to our neighbors and friends and buckled our seat belts and sat in silence for the first hour. We choose to move back to Houston, Texas to better our lives in buying a house and starting a family at some point. Those things are almost impossible in California. We love our California family and miss them everyday. When ever I see a picture from there it takes me way back and I feel a little home sick.
Houston in the first month has been amazing. For the first time in my life I can say, "I love my job!" Hubby also obtained a dream job doing the same thing that he was doing in California, about 10 minutes down the road. We are truly happy, blessed and exciting about what is next to come.
Here is our trip documented view Sony Cyber-shot. I think I'll call her Sonny. If you've never made a car trip at least half way across the country, you should, America is beautiful!

The last supper with our neighbors.

Yay! We made it to Texas!
Isn't she beautiful?
The horizon was so flat that I passed out, here I am waking up after the sun went down. Weird feeling.
Nom, nom, nom. Sonic is so much more accessible now. Nom!
First stop, Funky Town. Aka: Fort Worth, Texas.

This is the last time I saw my fur baby, Audrey. I was so sad and she looks scared out of her mind! I have never seen that face before.

Dance CoLab - Meet the Staff

My last photo shoot done in LA was at the Dance Collaboration Dance Studio in Burbank, CA. Owner and Director, Joseph Decker and I became friends through his Bar Method classes. (Talk about an ass kicking!) Anyways, he now has a great staff and wanted some promo shots. " Of course I'll do it" I screamed when he asked! "Is it OK if I dance at the same time?" That pretty much happened. I highly recommend this studio for either dance classes from this amazing staff or for the Bar Method. Warning: it's addicting.
