Good afternoon from Esquire Photography HQ and with only a couple days left in 2013, I still have so much that I want to share with you. Like the trip I took at the beginning of October to visit my youngest brother: Tony and his wife: Annie after their bouncing baby girl: Roxy was born in Minnesota.
My trip to Minnesota had a stop-off in Chicago before I landed where I was able to enjoy some Gold Coast Dogs for breakfast at 5:30 a.m. Which happens to be voted the BEST hot dogs in Chicago, and I know, when I lived in Chicago – I would have one or two a week. They’re totally amazing!
Now I know Chicago is not even close to being en route to Minnesota, but I scored a totally cheap ticket and knowing that I was stopping at O’Hare International Airport – there would be an opportunity for some great eats & do some shopping.
After I landed in Minneapolis and my brother; Tony picked me up to head to their home where I pretty much crashed out on their couch while Tony went back to the hospital to pick up Annie & their daughter; Roxy.
Roxy is a very special little lady for our family because we haven’t had a girl in our family tree since our mother. So yup – I was going to rearrange my calendar & coordinate a flight to meet her.
My trip to Minnesota was filled with so many new memories, new and tasty eats, like a pretty solid pizza and my MEGA White Castles! And, on top of it – I had the opportunity to film a new program starring my brother: Tony that was filmed entirely on my Google Glass & Apple iPhone 5s. The latter of all of them is still in production and will be shared with you VERY soon and included in my presentation at Compton High School at my next presentation.
To say that it was tough leaving to go back to So Cal would be a lie. Also, to say that I haven’t gone a day where I didn’t think about moving EPHQ to Minnesota to be closer to my brother, his totally cool wife; Annie and their precious daughter and my little niece: Roxy, that would be a lie too.
ALSO! You’ll see in the video how Roxy is probably one of the youngest fans of Duran Duran!
