recent travels

As promised, I’m here to kick-off the week by sharing with you some shots of my trip to Austin {better late than never!} If I could describe this city in one word, it would be: vibrant. The people, restaurants, scenery + shops were all filled with culture, character + energy. Besides attending the festival, some of my favorite activities included shopping on Congress Street {stopping at this famous mural}, dining on delicious food truck cuisine + enjoying the nightlife at this local hot spot.

Although it was sweltering during our entire stay, we mostly traveled the city by foot, which I would highly recommend. We found character in every corner of Austin, via a brightly painted home, a quirky coffee shop, or elaborate mural in the most unassuming nooks + crannies of the city. It certainly felt like a destination away from the comfort of the Midwest, which was all the more wonderful.

I definitely hope to make a visit again soon, but until then I will live vicariously through these memories captured in photos. Enjoy!
