Happy February!!! 1 month down 11 more to go! Actually, I'm not going to think about it like that I have very open welcoming arms for 2011 and I am excited that all is to come with it. January was soo busy right? At least for me it was. APA had lots of great events that if you were involved in the photo community I hope you were able to check out. I didnt have time to post them here (Sorry!!! I know I said I would, Im trying to do better, hence this post!) You can always keep track of what that APA Midwest is doing by joinging us on Facebook here
So anyway here we are February! The month of love, BLACK HISTORY MONTH! This month is a tease as it only lasts 28days. and there is a lot going on!
Outside of hanging out with the photography community I ama regular girl that loves to hang out and chill with the sexy people of Chicago and have a good time. Here are a few places that I will be stopping through this month and if you are around you should defeiunitly do the same!
