Texas Bluebonnets

Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area – Spicewood, Texas – April 2024

It’s bluebonnet season here in Texas! On Wednesday I moved from one Airbnb to another, which meant I had a few hours to either work from a brewery or coffee shop—or find an adventure.

Volunteering at South by Southwest

South by Southwest – Austin, Texas – March 2024

Last week I volunteered at the Stateside Theatre for the South by Southwest Film & TV Festival here in Austin, managing lines, taking tickets, answering questions from attendees, and keeping people away from the red carpets. I also got up close to many, many celebrities. Hello, Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Susan Sarandon!

San Antonio life

Mission San José – San Antonio, Texas – March 2023

I’m overdue for an update! The last time I wrote I was contemplating buying a Stetson hat and a pair of $350 boots from Allens Boots in Austin. Well, I bought both… along with three pairs of Wrangler jeans, three western shirts, socks, a boot jack, a matching belt, and an M buckle. Yeehaw! I’m having a great time living in San Antonio this month. My mom and aunt visited a couple of weekends ago and we had so much fun. Read on for more about life in San Antonio so far.

The road to Texas

Texas Welcome Center – January 2023

I’m in the great state of Texas! For the next six weeks, I’m calling Austin home. I’ve only been here a few days and am already loving it, mostly because there’s no snow, near-constant sunshine, and high temps near 65 degrees. I can finally check “become a snowbird” off my bucket list! Like my trip out west last year, I drove here on one road. They say it’s more about the journey than the destination, and the 3-day journey down I-35 was quite fun! Here are the highlights.
