Hangin’ Out In The Hill Country

Man, I love Austin and the surrounding Hill Country!  It’s my favorite city in this awesome state, besides The Sparkling City by the Sea, Corpus Christi (my hometown). We spent Christmas with my parents, then headed back a week later for a multi-event for a few days.  Emma made the trek with me, yet again, and this trip took us … Continue reading
