This summer we opted for something quite out of the ordinary for us: staying home! Best laid plans and all that…although truthfully we have been enjoying it fully. The wanderlust is still there but so is the need to slow down for a while. In order to merge these two seemingly conflicting desires we have been taking small trips around the area. Who knew interesting could happen so close to one’s house, right? Texas is the second largest state of the union and as such encompasses many diverse environments. We’ve been exploring a few of them. This summer’s posts will likely be all about Texas, come along in our discoveries and please forgive us if we forget to write a post or two, we are taking it easy this time around, laid-back Texas-style.
