Preparations

We celebrated the wedding of two wonderful friends, Connor and Jessica, this weekend. The morning of the wedding, I went for a walk around the neighborhood with another one of the bridesmaids. It was a crisp, sunny morning, and early enough that the sunshine hadn't warmed the air just yet.  Conversation came easily, yet occasional silence felt comfortable too (one of many reasons why I will be a lifelong lover of walks)...

Our move and Austin so far

We're in Austin! Thankfully, the move-in process continues to be less and less stressful the more we organize and put items in their place.  While we've haven't had too much time to explore since we've been settling in, today and this saturday promise adventures.^^A little glimpse of our new home (and a few new pieces of furniture!)Everything went smoothly upon our arrival to Texas, but the move prior to that was....
