several weeks of celebrations

The past several weeks have been absolutely full to brim with fun work and personal events! It’s a big month all around!

We kicked everything off with the opening of the Austin Boardwalk. The private donor event was first (and it was so beautiful and perfect) and I got to wear my new Stitch Fix Sally Mixed Stripe dress in a very appropriate cocktail length/summer weather event. Add another to the list for ‘my job exceeds every and all expectations’.

And then we followed with the public grand opening! And what a memorable day it was – bands playing, drum lines marching, aerial dancers dancing (and a partridge in a pear tree?)! My co-worker and I got this fun photo with the giant ribbon cutting scissors. This project encompasses so much to the community – connection, safety, health, beauty, progress. I’m floored that I got to play the tiniest of little pieces in it’s implementation.

At the public opening event there was a stunning performance called East~West by Blue Lapis Light Aerial Dancers to celebrate the connections achieved through the completion of the Boardwalk trail. The underpass of IH-35 at Lady Bird Lake was made beautiful (probably for the first and maybe only time) by these talented dancers.

We finished off that weekend by celebrating a dear friend’s wedding, which took place at the Zilker Clubhouse (check out that incredible view)! Isn’t that hanging backdrop beautiful?

And we wrapped up the work events with a practically sold out 10th Anniversary of the Maudie’s Moonlight Margarita Run & Party. The run portion was successful and the party was beautiful, but we were unfortunately driven inside by tornado warnings and rain.

Next up, celebrating our 5 year old… And then I am going to take a very long nap. 😉

the front yard garden – in bloom

Allow me to geek out on plants for just a minute. I know I haven’t showed you much of it yet, but I have a front yard I am actually proud of. This is a pretty big change since I typically feel like the plumber whose toilet isn’t fixed. My yards have all been in somewhat of a sad state. But not this new one. This one has a rain garden. And native plants.

And they are all blooming right now. Who needs spring when you have Texas ‘fall’?

Pride of Barbados.

Lantana. Don’t know the variety. Maybe ‘Pink Caprice’ or ‘Texas Flame’?

And you know what’s crazy? Pomegranates. They are native in Texas. And this one grows me some edible fruit. Mind blown.

What’s even more crazy to me than a yard full of blooming plants is the fact that my phone took all those pictures. Technology.

Austin staycation

Jason had a couple of vacation days at his current job but since he is starting this business, we aren’t exactly in a financial state to travel! We decided to stay around Austin since there are certainly plenty of things to do around here.

Friday morning we were getting ready to go and Jude pulled this look out. We’re working on a full sleeve of angry birds tattoos and one ended up on his belly (turns out angry birds tattoos are a great discipline motivator – yay for things that aren’t candy or electronics).

Yes, I totally just posted a picture of my kid in his underwear with a crown. File this one away under ‘photos I can’t wait to show his first girlfriend’.

We headed down to the trail and jumped in a two person kayak with a kiddo attachment in the middle. Check out that beautiful Austin skyline in the background. I could go on and on about how much I love that we have a lake and a greenbelt trail system in the core of the urban-most area of the city . . . but I’m sure only my landscape architecture friends would appreciate that (of which, there are probably only a couple that read the blog).

In case you didn’t realize how beautiful Austin is. . . check out this view into the hill country from the water. So beautiful.

It was so much fun and so peaceful in the lake. I was worried that Jude was going to a) freak out, b) jump in, c) be scared, but he totally loved it. He put his hand in the water and let it drag through while we paddled. We saw no fewer than 200 turtles and several egrets and white swans. The wildlife definitely held his attention.

Today, we are heading over to McKinney Falls State Park for a little more vacationing. I’m looking forward to seeing the falls, the giant trees and the beautiful landscapes all just about 15 minutes away from us in South Austin. Love this city.

Caroline Wright – August’s Humid Decline

I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this. Caroline Wright is a local Austin artist and I have stalked this piece of art for quite some time. It’s been all over pinterest (see here and I can’t seem to find the other one – it was displayed in an entry of a beautiful home) and I really wanted it for my own home.

And guess what, it’s even more beautiful in person hanging in our new living room.  Here’s a little sneak peak. . .
