Graffiti and Memories

So here we are almost at the end of February already, the lake is back up to its normal level, the sun is coming out more often than not and its almost wine O'clock here in Austin πŸ‘πŸ˜€πŸ·

My eldest daughter went out recently with a friend and her family to the Hope Outdoor Gallery in Austin, the girls had great fun checking out all the different artwork not usually seen where we live in the suburbs!

Whilst our eldest daughter was busy at the Hope Gallery, hubby and I took our youngest daughter and Winston for a walk downtown and we decided on the 2nd street district, usually we go there at night for dinner and drinks but it also has some great boutiques and cafes which is where I caught sight of this sign...

This week it was my sisters third wedding anniversary she got married less than a month before we moved to Austin, I'm so glad they got married when they did as I was able to be Matron of Honour, plan and attend the hen do (bachelorette party to my American readersπŸ˜‰) and be involved as much as possible which just wouldn't have happened if we lived in Austin at that time. Happy Anniversary Jen and Shaun πŸŽ‰

My girls have decided to start coming home on the bus again, I took this picture whilst I was waiting at the bus stop even though its been almost three years watching the yellow buses it still makes me feel like I'm on a movie set as it drives up!

I've been thinking of writing another article for the expat magazine Global Living but I'm a bit stuck on a subject...does anyone have any ideas for me? Thank you in advance 😚
