Life Lately

It’s been a busy week in our house!  I am two days into preparing for the new school year and we have spent the weekend doing laundry and packing what Taylor will be taking with her to college.  Have you ever experienced two opposite feelings at the same time?  I have been shifting between the feeling of excitement and dread all summer and as the summer break comes to an end I have a feeling I’m not alone.  Whether you are a student and you are about to start a new school year, a parent sending your child off to kindergarten, a mom dropping your child off at college for the first time, or someone who is starting a new job or just retired, life changes are a little scary.  I’m definitely not an expert but from my experience as an educator and in life, I think the best way to navigate change is to acknowledge that whatever you are feeling is normal and readjust to build structure and routine back into your day.

Austin’s Best Hotel: The Driskill

Texas summers are really hot and humid so when looking for a place to take pictures last week, I knew it had to be indoors.  One of the most beautiful historic buildings in Austin is the Driskill Hotel.  Not only is it the oldest operating hotel in Austin but also one of the best known hotels in Texas.  The Driskill bar was recently named the best cocktail bar of Austin by the Austin Chronicle.  The next time you are in Austin I highly recommend stopping in for happy hour (daily from 4-7) accompanied by live music 6 days a week.  You won’t be disappointed!  Below is a glimpse into a few areas of this iconic hotel.

You can shop all of the above looks here and here.  Game Day Top is from Wooden Ships
