Austin Part Two

Hello, friends! Our second day in Austin began with breakfast at Russell's Bistro with some family friends. Afterward we decided to hike up to Mount Bonnell – even though it was a cloudy day the view was still beautiful! Next up was a visit to The Contemporary Austin's Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria. Close to the park we discovered a garden complete with a group of peacocks!

After enjoying the museum we headed downtown to walk around Lady Bird Lake. I couldn't help but  stop to try out the swan paddle boats, they reminded me of pictures I have seen in Japan! Our walk ended back on Rainey Street where we had dinner at G'Raj Mahal. Our final stop was a beer flight at Banger's Sausage House & Beer Garden. I can't wait for the next opportunity we have to come back to Austin because there was still so much to do that we didn't have time for in our short weekend visit! After another night in our tiny house we were headed back to KC. Until next time, ATX!

Austin Part One

Last weekend Dale and I took a quick trip to Austin and we had the best time eating and exploring! Our first full day started out with breakfast at Hillside Farmacy. After some delicious biscuits and gravy we walked all around East Austin and ended up at East Austin Succulents. I would have taken home a million new plants if we hadn't flown! Next up was a stop at Craft Pride to try out some local beers, my favorite was the Buffalo Bayou Brewing Gingerbread Stout.

For the rest of the afternoon we wandered around South Congress with a few stops at Amy's Ice Cream and Perlas. By dinner time arrived we had wandered in almost all the shops and were ready to head to Wu Chow. Before eating we took a quick walk around 6th Street. Our dinner was amazing and afterward we were ready to relax back at our tiny house. Be on the lookout for my favorite stops from our second day soon!

November Around The Web

It's hard to believe 2017 is almost over! This time of year always flies by with the holidays, but I still can't believe that tomorrow is December 1st. This month was full of celebration — I went to two weddings, spent a weekend with close friends visiting us in St. Louis, and we made it through our elaborate Thanksgiving festivities. I also led a fun workshop, designed an entire calendar, and created some lettering I'm really proud of (and will someday get to share!). AND Dale and I got some new photos taken (thanks, Bethany!) which I will be sharing here very soon! Around the web this month I loved seeing Cassandra's Flora & Henri featureInterior, both home and retail, spaces have really caught my eye lately. Here are a few other favorites: 

Grateful for a lot this year.
