The Adventurous Design
Ben and Kelly are always on the go. Seeking experience and adventure in their in everyday lives. Ironically, these gifts have seen the dusty, flats of West Texas, the snowy mountains of Taos, New Mexico, and the chaos of interstate 40 on a very snowy, icy day. Soon will find themselves in Kelly's hip urban loft. At that time be fastened with the mirrors that reflect her natural beauty.
As dusk approached I took notice of the road conditions. It was a sheet of ice and only a few eighteen wheelers on the road. Slow and steady wins the race, right? An additional two hours landed us in Amarillo at 10am. Generally a 5 hour drive to Amarillo, we arrived in just under 24 hours. At 6pm we would not be in St. Louis. A great sadness. That surprising moment for Kelly wouldn't come to fruition. No matter for this couple though. Kelly was very touch by the great lengths Ben went to.
I'm so grateful for the experiences in my life that have lead to friendship. In this case, my first contemporary design show led me to St. Louis, MO. I fell in love with the city but most of all the people.
