I just got back from an amazing several days in Austin, Texas with Captain. To say I loved Austin and had a phenomenal time is an understatement.
I’ve never been to a town where there was such an incredible combination of positive characteristics: the friendliest people, amazing food, outstanding live music, tons of fun outdoorsy things to do, great college campus, youthful and fresh influence, politics… Jeez, where do I stop?!
Austin is unapologetically and proudly bizarre. I know the slogan “Keep Austin weird” but it’s just too cool to sum it up as weird.
I won’t bore you with extensive details of the trip but I’ll sum it up by saying that we did Sixth and Rainey street, toured UT, went to a comedy club, rode bike around town galore, ate more red meat and drank more beer in those days than I ever thought humanly possible, watched the largest urban bat population take off for their evening search for food, stayed at the gorgeous Driskill hotel, ate and ate more, watched tons of live local music and had a very romantic time with my man. It was about as perfect as a getaway could get.
(Pardon my crappy photography skills.)
Austin, I love you!
PS- I’m still in awe that this is my life post Grayheart. There is hope after divorce, y’all!
