Just over a week ago we shot our very first tutorials along with our first "About Us" video. The experience was exciting (and exhausting). From the moment I woke up that morning I felt the pressure and critical nature of making this day successful...and the videos successful. First was styling the hair just right. Not only mine, but my mom's and the model's hair. I felt a little rusty on my 1920s hairstyling techniques. The last time I had to do this was for theater over a decade ago.

Last week I made a surprise visit to see my mom for an early Mother's Day. My mom was so happy and excited to see me! I was also really excited to see her new place at Ponte Vedra Beach.

Do you remember the anticipation of childhood the night before your birthday or Christmas when you couldn't wait to open your gifts? Shaking and holding your gifts to see if they would somehow reveal their secrets to you. Hoping they would whisper to you or accidentally tear slightly open to see what was inside.
