My Happy Place Says Everything!
This photo will forever make me laugh and here’s why:
I received a phone call from Arkansas Life Magazine, and they said they wanted to feature me as one of the seven Arkansans who are “just as good at getting dressed as running successful businesses” (their words not mine). They also said they’d like to photograph me in one of my favorite spaces, a place that makes me truly happy.
I didn’t even have to think about my favorite place. I answered right away: “The Fold. It has to be The Fold.”
You can see in this photo, all the chairs are up because The Fold is a Mexican restaurant, and the only way we were allowed to photograph there was to come before opening hours.
So, the magazine comes out about a month later. The other six people chose to be photographed in spaces like their creative loft, their kitchen, their garden, their studio, their greenhouse, and then there’s me...in a Mexican restaurant. I guess for me, happiness is sipping on jalapeño margaritas and making my way through a basket of warm salty tortilla chips!
