This past weekend, a very close friend turned 30! About 30 of his closest friends flew down to Austin to surprise him. I haven't been back to that part of Texas since I moved to Virginia in 2002 (and wow, that makes me feel OLD!). Austin is such an easy, walk-able city. Tons of small boutique shops and delish restaurants! The weather couldn't have been better. My husband and I rarely travel so we had such a great time away with friends and cannot wait for our next trip this winter!
