austin, texas : feels like home

I don’t know what it was, but my trip back to Texas a couple weeks ago made me more homesick than ever. Austin just feels like home, and despite the heat, I fell in love with the city all over again. We ate all the food and revisited old stomping grounds (I somehow forgot how […]

supermoon, supergirl {+ a giveaway}

This summer marks 4.5 years of living in Los Angeles, 4.5 years of living in the same apartment on the west side (#represent). This fact doesn’t appear astounding on its own, but what if I told you that this is the longest I have ever lived in one place of residence? What if I told […]

sailing on film

I was wondering why my mother hadn’t mentioned anything about these sailing photos (from my trip back to Austin) – until I realized I never published this post that has just been sitting here for weeks. ANYWAY, my mama and Eric just purchased a condo on Lake Travis, and though I wish I still lived […]

Austin summer on film

Oh, how I wish I could pretend I spent an entire summer in Austin (minus the heat). But I did get to go home for five days to meet my new baby nephew and spend time with family. Austin will forever hold a giant place in my heart, and even though it continues to change […]

zilker park – austin, texas

I joked that the only reason we drove back to Texas was so Kipling could run across Zilker. But it was partially true. I wanted Kipling to make a trip back to Texas, and while we were there, we absolutely had to let her run free across the lawn. We miss a lot of that […]

summer in austin, texas

Our road trip finally ended in good ol’ Austin, Texas. Much to my dismay, I hardly took any photos there (some rain and poor lighting at evening dinners). I’m also still pretty self-conscious about asking people to take or be in photos (I know, STILL?!). I’ll need to get over that eventually. I snapped some […]

our new year’s eve

Believe it or not, this past New Year’s Eve was our first New Year’s Eve spent in Austin. Every year we would always go home for the holidays, and last year we spent New Year’s driving to California. We celebrated with a small group of friends at an apartment party. We hung streamers, put out […]

my sister’s graduation

I’ve been absent the past week because I’ve been in Texas! I flew back for my sister’s graduation and spent six days in Austin. It seems like a long time, but the time flew by. Austin felt so familiar, yet it seemed so distant from me. I miss it, but I do feel like our […]
