around here lately
Summer is well and truly camping out in Austin and sunglasses, sundresses, icy cold cherry lemonades are the order of the day. This is a bit of what’s been happening lately.
Below: Joel’s new Warby Parker specs, blooms in our front yard, my new dress (wore it last night to Ballet Under the Stars), and Cors snuggling with my current read.
Below: quilt progress, Sunday afternoon reading material, cherry lemonades, and darling flowers at Vintage Heart.
Speaking of Vintage Heart, they celebrated their 1 year birthday last weekend. Congratulations Mallory and family!

We managed all kinds of adventures and explorations while in Portland last week. Here’s a handful in no particular order:
One day we met up with two friends from college (Jon & Liz) and had delicious things on biscuits at Pine State and then best coffee of our trip at Barista. We Texans approve of biscuits.
Our weekend was spent celebrating our anniversary (Happy Anniversary, Joel!!) and taking a break from work to enjoy our fun city. There were lattes at Vintage Heart, a pretty manicure, good food and a French 75 at Péché. Such a relaxing and happy weekend.
Now it’s off to finish up that last school project and work those last few days before celebrating Christmas!
Above, there’s also a photo of a Wayside Violet order being packed up. Today is the last day to place an order in time for Christmas.
I’m off of work tomorrow, but before I get to my to do list. -we have friends coming this weekend and I’m SO excited!- I thought I’d share a few photos from this working gal’s phone.
PS. I’m really enjoying my new job! It’s nice to do something a little more active than I have been doing the last few years.
1) Pretty necklaces 2) An owl at a Thai place after work a few nights ago
3) A skirt that I have my eye on
We’re having a fantastic thunderstorm right now! We haven’t gotten much rain since moving to Austin and I’m really enjoying this downpour. Normally it’s all sunshine and sweat around here.
For proof here’s a look at the weekend we just had:
Cors and I had a big ol’ cleaning day and I managed to get rid of a few more boxes. Fingers crossed we’ll have them all out of here by the weekend and I can finally show you what we’ve done with this new place. I’m really liking it!

There’s been a lot of plotting and scheming happening in this house. Don’t worry they are good plots and excellent schemes. Fingers-crossed, I can share a few of them soon. But first we have to get through the school year and Joel’s graduation. Have I mentioned that Joel’s graduation means a trip to New York City? I’m so excited about it! I’ve never been properly to the city before. If you have any recommendations send them my way, please.
For now we’re keeping our heads down. Joel’s been finishing up his thesis and I’ve been sewing and drawing forever. I can’t believe how fast this semester has gone!
