Let's start at the beginning of 2011, which kicked off with a snazzy, drastic haircut. Taking extreme measures with fashion and hair satisfies my daring, wild side. When I feel too predictable, BAM! chop hair or in past years, go blond. A new do is a-brewing and coming soon. It was quite liberating, but initially I felt I had lost my beauty. It took a bit to be comfortable.
Next up: Mardi Gras. And it was bittersweet. The last one before we made the move back to the northeast. The month long festivities leading up to Fat Tuesday create the experience. Planning your costumes, biking night after night following parades, standing on ladders and returning with bags of "throws" that serve no purpose other than the satisfaction of "winning" them are all missed, fond memories.
Attended the first New Orleans Fashion Week!

a few of my favorite shots from the year
It has been a year of change and adventure; discovering new places and experiencing new things. I love the "first time"occasion. Biking in a new city is always a thrill and a great first time affair. Truthfully, the transition was not without many tears and obstacles. Beginning this new year, there are plans to conquer these imposing hurdles. The best and worst event of the year was moving-paradox. Being near family has been a true comfort in my life, but leaving New Orleans still seems like a mistake. It's difficult when your two desires are in such opposition. For now, DC is treating me kindly.
