I have news! I can’t believe I haven’t told you all sooner. Seems like most big blogger announcements involve engagements (nope), babies (definitely not) and cookbook deals (not yet).
Here’s mine: I’m going down to Austin, Texas, for the whole month of February with my good friend Ali! We’re going because it’s cold and we can. It was Ali’s idea and I’m so glad we’re actually making it happen.
I can’t wait to sample Austin’s finest street tacos with Ali and clink margaritas with Jeanine. I’m eager to soak up some of the city’s youthful energy and open up to new possibilities. I’m looking forward to an exercise in minimalism, too. I’m only bringing the bare essentials for the month and it should be a good reminder of how little I really need.
Cookie and Henry are coming along, too, of course. We booked an amazing, light-filled house on Airbnb that has a fence built all the way around it, so I won’t worry so much about Cookie, and one of my friends is renting my place while I’m gone. It has all worked out pretty perfectly so far.
