West Texas weekend

Last weekend, as the ACL music fest was getting underway and the traffic around our neighborhood was gridlocked, we bolted town for my friend Christie’s wedding. I’m totally crowd-phobic so in my mind she couldn’t have chosen a better weekend.

Although, lets be real, I’m pretty camp-phobic too so this kind of getaway is out of the ordinary for us me. But it was such a fun, relaxing change of pace… it reminded me that we don’t always have to hop on a plane when we feel the itch to go somewhere.

  1. What a nice setting for a wedding, I imagine the atmosphere, music, and surroundings were just as amazing as the pictures taken.

    You look so pretty! This is a nice reminder for me at a time when my travel days are numbered…we’re heading away for the weekend (next weekend) and I think I was originally a little bummed that post-Sicily we missed our opportunity to go on a babymoon across state borders, but I think it’s true that there are so many cool places to check out within driving distance.
