Trip To Austin

Last week, Andrew and I took our first load of stuff out to Austin. We spent 4 days visiting the musical hotspots, and enjoying all the delicious food that Austin has to offer (well, it felt like all the food!) Here we are with nearly all of our worldly goods in the U-Haul, getting ready to go unload it. We look exhausted from the long drive-960 miles from Phoenix!

Had a super fun evening of good food, friends and of course, music at Hondo's on Main in Fredericksburg.
Here's Andrew and fellow fiddler, and our friend from back home in Spokane, Kurt Baumer. Kurt and Anita have lived in Austin for 5 years now, and they have been an invaluable resource for us as we get ready to move there ourselves! Andrew got up and played the last set with John Arthur Martinez and the rest of the band.
Enjoyed some barbecue at County Line, overlooking the Colorado River. I am so stoked by all the green trees in Austin- being a New England girl, I have sure missed the greenery from up north.

If all goes well, this may be the future home of Wilson School of Strings in Leander. The deal is still up in the air, so fingers crossed for the next couple of weeks!

Can't wait to get back to Texas. We came home with so many excited stories, the kids are sure we must be moving to paradise!

    Austin is a beautiful city. We will be praying for God's will for you. I'm sure you would like to settle down again. We're selfish but hope we will get to see you in a few months. Keep us posted. Hugs to everyone.

    Thank you, Mildred! We still hope to at least take a weekend trip to Arkansas this fall, so I'll keep you in the loop. We won't be that far away, actually, compared to where we are now!
