A Weekend In Miami With Microsoft and Nokia

May 20, 2014

As you may have sensed from Instagram, I spent this past weekend in Miami capturing a weekend of adventure through the new Nokia Lumia 1020 phone.

Goin’ Through The Big D

December 31, 2013

{And I do mean Dallas!} We had a great visit to Dallas with our family over Christmas! While we only explored the tip of the iceberg (must go back for more Tex-Mex and a visit to Urban Taco!), we packed a lot into 3 days plus a holiday. We rented a house, which was SO […]
