design aglow diaries: dallas to albuquerque

 

A good night's sleep made all the difference in the world. We woke up in our Dallas hotel refreshed and rested. Headed to Northpark Center for a stroll and breakfast (and Starbucks. Of course). Northpark Center is really interesting; it's a mall that's also an art museum. Once we left Dallas we were out into the great emptiness (with trains!). Walked around a bit at the [closed for the evening] New Mexico Welcome Center. (This is my only "new" state for this trip.) Stretching is always good, but holding hands is my favorite way to relax. The sun started to go down as the landscape started to change. At first it was blinding, but ended up being beautiful. And we found a gas station sitting by itself right off of the interstate, hawking Route 66 mementos and sporting ancient gas pumps (with the clicking numbers and retro styling-- wait, vintage, not retro). It was also the local general store... and the post office.  Made it Albuquerque just in time to collapse into bed. Exploring tomorrow! xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!

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!
