Missing in Action

Happy Spring! I've missed blogging my last few trips - partially because two were work-related and the other because South by Southwest can be tiring enough without adding things to it. Don't get me wrong, I love cataloging my adventures, even if only for myself to remember what I did in a year, but I am trying to be kinder to myself these days. You know, not just doing something because it's on my to-do list. In the meantime, I still snapped a few shots if you want to check out my Instagram feed - instagr.am/jenntbeard. The highlights of two trips to St. Louis and one to Austin included:

A behind-the-scenes tour of the St. Louis Art Museum and the George Caleb Bingham exhibit. Learning about the process of making steel plates for prints over a several year span of time and seeing original proofs as the artist made corrections - quite fascinating.
All of South by Southwest but especially spending time with my amazing and inspiring friend, Jessica, who expertly spotted free cupcakes after I'd been looking for one all week.
Stopping by to see our two nephews in Dallas. (They were busy munching on fresh pineapple to pose.) We also had lunch with Brian's brother and sister-in-law.
