Design Aglow Diaries: New Orleans, LA to Wichita Falls, TX

Our morning started a bit late again in New Orleans, as we reloaded the dog and cat into the car and searched for Bourbon Street and Cafe du Monde. We grabbed a quick snap of both, but ended up bypassing beignets this time; something about a heap of fried dough and powdered sugar wasn’t the most appealing at 8 am with a long journey ahead. We promise we’ll try some next time though! As we made our way through Louisiana we watched the landscape turn from cityscape to barren and wintery trees, grooving along to some Duran Duran (yesterday was a 90’s kind of day). We also watched as a metal fire pit flew out of the back of someone’s trailer and beelined it's way to our car. We swerved, but unfortunately were attacked by part of the metal monstrosity and had to pull over to assess the damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt (except the car) and the police officer was quick to get to us in the middle of nowhere. An hour and a half later we were on the road again, a little shaken but with a newfound energy to keep going! Alas, we passed the Texas state line and made our way through Dallas, stopping for the night in a little town called Wichita Falls. We’re hoping to make some more progress tomorrow with a few of the setbacks we had today, but we’re well rested and ready to go. See you on #designaglowdiaries tomorrow! - Lauren & Carry

I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
