A Friendly Visit from a Californian Friend

This post is a little bit overdue, but I wanted to post regardless! My friend Jonathan visited Christina and I here in Florida a couple weeks ago with his brother. I met Jonathan when I moved out to California for a semester of school during college and he was one of my MANY roommates. Jonathan and his brother were on a nationwide road trip and they stopped in Orlando overnight before coming down to us in the Miami area. It was a fun, quick visit and I got to enjoy some good food with them (it seemed that was one of their main "to do" items as they traveled to different cities across the country). So we got some food from foodtrucks, some authentic food in Miami, and coffee from Starbucks. Okay so the coffee wasn't anything overly special or unique haha. We even saw a Showtime show that is coming on next year being filmed while we were in Miami Beach. Photos to follow!

However, the coffee below IS special - Jonathan and his brother picked it up in New Orleans and gave it to us as a thank you. It is called Cafe Du Monde and is from an "Original French Market Coffee Stand" apparently. It's pretty tasty. I think it came in the COOLEST can - it is almost the exact same colors as all of the road signs in upstate NY (I know random, but I love the Adirondacks and went there almost every year growing up so I remember the signs well...what can I say, I'm observant).

They also made us some delicious pie, but I didn't take pictures of it. It was thoroughly enjoyed though. I'll post some photos from the Food Truck night in Hollywood, FL - which was pretty awesome.


Highlight Photos from Last Weekend - Fort Pierce, FL

Weeks seem to be flying by right now for some reason! Been busy with photography, my part-time work, and some other things as well. But another weekend is just about here! Crazy. Here are some of my favorite photos I took last weekend while Christina and I were up on Hutchinson Island in Fort Pierce, FL. I woke up with the sunrise...and because of the sunrise. But I got some beautiful shots and there were quite a few people walking as the sun rose!

My model (wife) showing her beautiful new haircut!

 This is my best butterfly shot so far - not so great, I know!
I'm working on it. They seem to be so evasive!

Took some beautiful shots of the ocean!

Have a great weekend! I'm sorry that most of you can't go to the beach to celebrate the coming of October and fall...but be grateful that you can drink hot pumpkin spice lattes and hot apple cider and not sweat profusely because it's still in the 80's. I know...it's still not the same!

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend - and a wonderful long weekend for some!
