My trip to Austin this past weekend was quite the whirlwind. It was filled to the brim with wedding planning, marg sipping, shopping, and catching up with three favorite ladies. The entire weekend was very productive, but super relaxing. It had been a while since I had been back to Austin, and this trip I felt inspired by so many facets of the city. I enjoyed being surrounded by fantastic graphics, and art, all worn and warmed by the incredible Texas heat. When we go back this fall for the wedding I’d like to spend an entire day on bike, patio hopping and snapping pictures of all the wonderful walls and signs encountered along the way. I just simply love Austin’s laid back, funky style, and find Hill Country’s hardy landscape and vegetation strikingly beautiful.
In between wedding planning duties we found time for the pool and a dip in Barton Springs, which was surprisingly, but delightfully, chilly. We also found relief from the heat in the form of air-conditioning, while shopping for my sister’s wedding shoes, and my bridesmaid dress. We were successful, and her shoes and my dress are the same amazing, vibrant color. All in all it was one of the most gratifying, and enjoyable vacations I’ve ever had. Partly made so sweet because of it’s compact schedule. It was such a memorable treat to spend this time with my mom and my sister. Saying good-bye Monday was difficult, but made easier knowing we will have more celebrated time together in October. I’m happy to be home, but I can’t wait to see them, and Texas, again soon. xo
