I've been a little busy lately...
but now I get to spill the beans that we are moving mid-summer.
All my hand wringin', circuititious windshield drivin' tours around neighborhoods all over town, endless late night sessions stalking houses online and a continual urban/rural pro vs. con tally playing out in my little noggin' paid off.
I think it will really be the best of both worlds. A standard sized city lot with a house that is not too big, but not too small. I love that this city is a place where we can live walking distance to East Austin's urban farms (Boggy Creek, Springdale, Rain Lily and Hausbar) yet ride our bikes downtown in minutes! We'll be just north of the river and the hiking/biking trails, around the corner from some of my favorite studio spaces here in town (Pump Project, Splinter, Blue Genie).
My heart is full and my hands can't wait to get down and dirty in some real, honest to goodness, topsoil.
