Exit here to Happy

This is a photograph I took on my travels in a west Texas town called Happy. I loved the sign but I also thought it was representative of my life.

Seems so perfect, right?

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

One of the greatest perks of my job is that I get to do a lot of traveling. I manage a territory of ten states, leaving me a lot of ground to cover and parts of the country to see.

A few weeks ago I spent a week in West Texas. Although I was extremely busy with work, I did have a bit of free time to explore the wild wonders of the west.

Shortly after leaving Austin I was regretting the 1,500 miles I had scheduled for myself to cover in one week…

While driving my initial 8+ hours west (never making that mistake again) I found myself driving through the wind farms of West Texas- which took me an hour or more to drive through at 70+MPH!!

It was one of the most unexpected yet beautiful experiences. The images cannot do any sort of justice to what it is like driving through this, absolutely stunning.

One of the really amazing places I did get to take some “me” time and visit was Cadillac Ranch. When it was described to me by a local in the area I was less than interested but, I had some free time and thought “YOLO”.

Cadillac Ranch was such a rad place to check out. Because my customers are locals of the area, they had tons of awesome stories (or possibly myths) to tell me about the artist whom created Cadillac Ranch; and I do love hearing some good ol’ small-town gossip.

My job is taking my to some very unexpected, amazing places that I am not sure my life would’ve ever taken me.

I am lucky enough to be able to travel for work, I urge those who are not to get out at every opportunity you have and see what you can. There are some completely amazing sights to see out there that you probably do not even know exist.

Some amazing things are happening back in RVA

Richmond has always had some really beautiful murals, but this year they’ve decided to up their game with the RVA mural project.

It makes me so proud and excited that in the last few years Richmond has been doing such big things. I am so happy to say Richmond is where I come from. I cannot wait to go back and visit and check out all the amazing things that have been happening around town since I have been gone. It is so awesome to be halfway across the country and see such amazing art coming out of Richmond and getting attention on sites such as Buzzfeed.

Richmond made #3 on Buzzfeed!!
