Forces Of Nature...

Once upon a time a girl decided to host her 40th birthday and to open her home to anyone that needed a place to stay. Once upon a time a girl almost lost her mind. When you open your home to house guest and decide to host a party you wish for everything to run smoothly. When your guests have never been to your town you want to show them anything and everything you can. With pride I always show off  my hometown the same way some people show off their gardens. When you plan for months to host and tend to people that are traveling from all four corners of this huge country of ours you want things to be right...

Hi my name is Adriana Iris and I am the daughter of chaos...

For months I gather planned and prepare for a weekend that was meant to be perfect without chaos glaring in... For months I planned dinners, videos and photo shoots, many outings, escapes that would create long lasting and fuzzy memories to those when the word Savannah would be brought up in everyday conversation.  Because I am all about parties, celebrations and showing off my town. Of course none of the plans really panned the way they are ever supposed to be.

While the nation is in a complete drought we had more rain than we've had in years. We lost power due to the storms and my body was not as full of energy as it had in previous years. Add to all that the challenging situations and conversations that could and would change my life forever. I've been tested... I've been tried but I have changed. I am evolving and ever changing... I am well and alive.

Later the lights came back on...
Later the rain retreated...
And later the music played on...
The weekend with a few pictures...

*We danced to La Vie en Rose he and I... It was one of the most romantic moments I've ever had and what could possibly be my favorite picture ever. Yes, the blurry one on the left.

Today I did what I do best when I need to return to self... when I need to return to center.
I drove towards the coast because close to the horizon I find my center to be...

I am evolving and ever changing...

I am well and alive...

  3. Thanks to you, Casey and the girls for sharing your home and town with us. Everything was perfect and memorable because we were all together. Savannah is lovely, amazing, green, funky, interesting and fun. I needed the change of pace. I'm still trying to get back into the routine before school starts again.

    Love you mucho amiga.

  11. You are so NOT the daughter of chaos! You're an amazing, creative, passionate woman and mother. I will never forget my visit and having the chance to get to know you, your family and our girlfriends better. Wishing we'd had more time. I hope we get to repeat. Maybe you should plan a visit to Boston. *hint-hint* Miss you. <3
