Adventures in Austin: SoCo

View of Austin from South Congress Ave.

I’m so thankful that during my three weeks back home in Texas, prior to arriving in California, I was able to visit Austin. One of my closest friends has lived there for the past few years and I had not seen her in over 5, so it was well over time to get there and spend some time with her! My friend, Miranda, her Mom and I had the most fun weekend catching up with each other and seeing Austin!

We spent the better part of a day exploring South Congress Avenue. SoCo, as the street is affectionately called, is known for funky and unique shops, restaurants and food trucks. We ended our day in the best way, with cupcakes from Sugar Mama’s, who do the mini-cakes proud!
