What do you even call this last decade? We had the early aughts (2000-2009), and we’re heading into the ’20s.. which feels weird to say.. but what do you call 2010-2019?

One of my favorite things to do is to take photos of strangers living their life. Is it creepy? A bit. Do I care? Not even a little. Here’s the English Volume.
Here’s my face all over England. Please Enjoy.
Friday April 19, 2019 / The Flight I don’t fly often. Small spaces and crowds upset me. I had no idea what I was doing when I arrived at the Atlanta airport. Fortunately, I was meeting up with the most travel savvy gal there is- Barbie Ortiz. I probably circled the airport TGIFridays three times… Continue reading #England
