Confessions of a Photography Addict

I'm an Austin Realtor, passionate about helping people fulfill their real estate dreams. I'm also a photographer, writer, and blogger.

I live with my husband in our little corner of Paradise which we call Long Hollow. When I'm not helping people with their real estate needs (Barbara Shallue - Austin), I write about everything - seriously, everything! - in my blog, Long Hollow , and post photos at Confessions of a Photography Addict. 

But it all adds up to one thing: Life is one Big Adventure and I can't wait to see what's waiting around the next corner!

 (One little known fact about me: my husband proposed just two weeks after we met and we were married on a Friday the 13th. Yes, we're still married, going on #34!)
