Goodbye and Hello

I apologize! It’s been quite a while my friends. Things have been a bit chaotic around here. The last time I wrote, it was about moving. We left the first home I ever owned. It has been exciting, but also a little sad. There’s something really nice and comforting about your first home. It servedContinue reading “Goodbye and Hello”

Esther’s Follies

Esther’s Follies is an institution in Austin. It is sort of like a variety or vaudeville show. The theater is clearly a former storefront with large picture windows and the weirdest/coolest decorations. The show itself is made up of different skits. It is mostly a comedic musical of sorts based on politics and local/national news.Continue reading “Esther’s Follies”

We’ve kept in touch over zoom, google hangouts, text and phone calls, but it has been about a year and a half since we’ve seen each other. Whoa!

Tillie’s

Originally for my mother’s birthday we were going to take her to a restaurant called Tillie’s. We ended up rescheduling because the opera postponed due to rain, but it was totally worth it! Tillie’s is down in an area called Dripping Springs, about 45 minutes south of downtown Austin but a world away. It feelsContinue reading “Tillie’s”

Happy Mother’s Day!

It was bittersweet yesterday morning. I was lucky to celebrate Mother’s Day with my parents after a wonderful week that included my mom’s birthday, but sad when I had to drop them off at the airport.
