3-17-2018 Working Vacation

Dear Daughter was also having a 'working vacation'
and constantly looking for photo spots
for her CBA photo shoots...
different backgrounds, colors, textures...

Dear Daughter is quite well known at CBA corporate
for having such great photos of their products 
and they asked her to do a Facebook Live seminar
to help other stylists take better photos like hers.

Two of the top stylists from Canada
who also earned the trip to Costa Rica
asked Chelsea to do a photo shoot with them
and teach them a few of her tricks.

Everyone who earned the Costa Rica trip
was gifted this beautiful 
faux-leather bag and matching wallet.
It will be available for sale to the public mid-April.

Don't worry, DD, no one looks at my blog! ha.

3-15-2018 The Pool

DD and I would go to the pool 
slathered in 100+ sunscreen
at 5 p.m. as the sun was setting
to avoid getting burned.
Plus, it was over 100*F
and the polished marble around the pool
was HOT and SLICK!

3-13-2018 Wildlife

This Iguana joined us for lunch one day...

Coatimundi eating fruit
from the trees outside our building.

 A feral cat at dinner...

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks
with pink bills, legs and feet...

...and best of all...Howling Monkeys!

Wait for it...
that dog barking sound
is the beginning of the monkey howl.
(Turn up the volume on your speakers!)

But my favorite was this beautiful blue butterfly!
