We say it time and time again, but we are so very thankful to be living here in Austin and raising kids in this wonderful city. Since we are all spending time with our families today, here is just a quick list of five reasons we are grateful to live in Austin:
#1: No matter how much we get out and enjoy our town, there is always something new to cross off our Bucket Lists.
#2: On those days we just don’t feel like getting out of bed (or, more realistically, when the kids are snug in their beds), we have plenty of books to read.
#3: We never run out of things to do.
#4: We can see live music virtually 365 days a year (and bring the kids along a lot of times, too!)
#5: We live in a place where we are surrounded by creative, talented, supportive, gracious and generous mamas and papas.
Austin, we love you!
