Austin Anniversary

This morning I looked at my phone and saw a date that had a familiarity to it. December 16, the day we moved to Austin exactly 8 years ago.

I've lived here long enough now to know it's the place I want to live out the rest of my existence and the place I will always return to if I ever get the chance to venture about. It's now where I call it my landing spot or what others may call home.

Today Toby and I took a walk around downtown.....

I love this old tower that sits on the edge of the lake. There is interesting history behind the Buford Tower.

After our walk, we celebrated our Texas anniversary with a Purple 'Rita. If you've never had one of Baby A's Purple 'Rita's before, I urge you to do so. I will warn you though, they are pretty toxic even for a seasoned drinker like myself. I suppose that's why they only limit you to two...or so I've heard. I've never needed more than two of these bad boys....

It was a lovely day.
