|Broken Bus by Joel Ganucheau|
Hey there! I am writing to you from the midway point of an extended road trip across the US with my family. Though we are having a wonderful summer together, I find myself increasingly homesick for the Lone Star State. I miss the big blue Texas sky, breakfast tacos and spring fed swimming pools. I find myself scouring Etsy and Pinterest for pretty things that remind me of home. So, I decided to pop in and share a few of my favorite local Austin finds. Austinites will recognize the Lone Star bus, above, from its perennial spot in the parking lot of my favorite honky tonk, the Broken Spoke.

Have I made you yearn for Austin the way I do? Or maybe inspired you to add a touch of Texas charm to your life? I'd love to hear what little things remind you most of home when you're away.
