Keep Austin Weird
Because Cody and I will be moving in just 3 short weeks (cannot even believe it yet), we are trying to soak up all of the glory that Austin is. We have fallen in love with this town in the 5 years that I have lived here and the 2 years Cody has lived here. It is such a great town! It is funny how God does things, Cody and I had both vowed to never live in Dallas, and now that is where we are packing up and heading to. Although we never thought we would be excited about moving to a city like Dallas, we are keeping an open mind and are just so excited to explore the plans there that God has set out for us.
We are trying to go to all the Austin places that are special to us and enjoy everything the city has to offer before we leave. We are hoping we can move back after Cody's 3 years at DTS but we know that is not up to us. I don't even know how to start listing off the things I will miss about Austin but I am going to try....
friends and family
the closeness of everything
being able to bike downtown
our church and small group friends
The University of Texas!
homeless people dressing in drag
the weirdness in general
all the memories of our engagement and wedding
feeling close to most cities in Texas
being 2 hours from my parents and Janeg (Jana +Greg)
the outdoorness of the city
dog friendly places
Kin's Din (Lauren and Kara should understand)
Oh dang, now I'm sad. Today we took Duma to Auditorium Shores today to soak it up. Here are some pics of today's great adventures.
