Design Aglow Diaries: West Palm Beach to New Orleans

 We made it out of Florida! Our journey started around 7 am, when we loaded a dog, a cat, and the remainder of our belongings into the car that would be our home for the next 5 days. The drive was pretty smooth sailing all the way through Florida (no accidents or heavy delays!) until we hit constant rain towards north Florida. Because of this, we unfortunately have a lack of photos to share with you for this first day. But we hope to do better tomorrow! Once we were out of Florida we quickly passed through the state lines of Alabama, Mississippi, into Louisiana, which is where we would be turning in for the night. We made it to New Orleans around 7:30pm and drove around a little to see some of the sights (neither of us have been here!) and find our hotel. We had a pretty successful first day and can’t wait to get on the road again. We’ll be stopping by the highly recommended Cafe du Monde for some coffee and beignets in the morning, so make sure to follow along on #designaglowdiaries…there will be enough powdered sugar for everyone! - Lauren & Carry

And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Where's The Money?

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
