Check Out Our New 'Hood - South 1st Street, Austin, TX

Someone has been busy, busy, busy lately. Working my day job, moving in to our new home, a week at Texas School for Professional Photographers, shooting lots of babies and couples and seniors (haha), editing the babies and couples and seniors... I honestly don't know what's gotten in to me. I never used to have this much energy. But I'm loving it. Tonight, I had some time to take a quick walk around the new 'hood just to shoot for fun with my little nifty 50. I haven't done that in a long time! Come...walk with me...

 More pretty purple flowers. Not sure what these are but they look like mini bluebonnets. There was just a little sprig of them popping up through the concrete.

What a terrific, eclectic, alive neighborhood. I'm so excited to be able to call this place HOME. Now, if we can just get the kids to all move back here I'll be a real happy camper.
