Austin is so sunny. My soul is sunny when I’m in Austin.
Now that I no longer live there, anyway. Unfortunate irony.

This was a family and fun-filled weekend. I arrived Thursday afternoon and spent time with my sisters (both of whom are working there this summer) and Alban, whose last day of work (before grad school) was Friday. Dad, June, and Davis arrived Saturday; we gathered for a family lunch then toured Janie’s workplace and Mary McCall’s apartment. After scattering for naps at our respective lodging places, we re-convened at Broken Spoke for a laughter-filled two hours of dancing. Sunday featured a family brunch at Elizabeth St. Cafe — I was excited my all-American family was up for Vietnamese brunch! Sadly my flight back to Nashville was early Sunday afternoon. I’ll be excited to see MM on her road trip back to NC later this week, to see the NC folks on my likely trip to Tarboro in July, and to see Alban at my friends-reunion lake party in August! Can’t get enough of my favorite people <3
