Austin's Uniqueness

Austin is the BEST city!  I have lived here a kid, a college student, a single woman, a married woman, and now a live as a Mom here.  Austin is the city for everyone no matter what stage of life you are in. Proud to be an Austinite doesn't even touch how I feel about this city.  Here we are as a family enjoying a little of what makes Austin special...Hope Graffiti Wall and the BMX Bike Park.

Goodbye, Jilly Bean ♥

Jill Bean Comer  Spring 2002 - January 2016

A reformed feral cat, a fierce hunter, an occasional love-giver, a quiet member of this family, and Matt and I's first pet together.  She will be remembered as a cat with the strongest of spirits.  

We worried about moving Jill out to the country with us.  We knew coyotes were near.  Although we will never know what happened to her in the end, this was all we have left of her.

Grace ♥ Horses

Just like her grandma, Goo Goo, Grace has an affinity for horses.  She is so small atop these large (gentle) animals but she loves it so.  

WHOA, Gracie !!!

And what do the boys do while Mama takes pictures and Grace is in her Poker, of course ;)

Happy Birthday, GraceLou and Way To Go !

For Grace's 6th Birthday she asked for her ears to be pierced.  Her Daddy and I were not on board right away, even trying to dissuade her from having them pierced by simulating what the processes would feel like.  We pinched her ears. A lot.  It didn't work !  She was undeterred and so, on her birthday we took the quintessential trip to Claire's.


(It wasn't possible to get an AFTER pic at the mall, but later that day I got this sweet image of her beautiful turquoise flower)

 OH, and did I mention THIS new development ?!  On her 6th birthday, she impressed us all ...
