2 Years Ago.. (part 1)

Here’s the thing about Facebook.. lately, it’s been doing this weird thing where it will show me a status update that I posted two years ago. So after seeing a few of these pop up lately, I realized that it’s been two years since I left my former home Seattle and embarked on a 2.5 week road trip down to my current home of Austin.

Thinking about it made me feel all nostalgic for the west coast (especially as we are experiencing 100+ degree temps in Austin everyday.. yesterday was 112) and I decided to take a look back through the photos from the road trip.

After living in Seattle for 2 years, I was excited to see 102 degree temps in California.. however, after this summer in Austin I am no longer happy to see things like this show up in my car..

Weekend

This blog has gotten pretty sad with lack of posts, so I want to start posting here more again, along with the regular food posts over at I See Nom Noms. So here’s a start.. photos from my weekend! Filled with time relaxing, spending Saturday evening on a boat with friends at Lake Travis, lunch at Hopdoddy with my family, and hanging out at the Dell Diamond.
