Life Lately

Our world has been a whirlwind. My apologies for the radio silence.
We are excited to say that we have decided to stay in Austin for the foreseeable future.  That being said, we put our house on the market and are currently in escrow. Fingers crossed!
It was bittersweet flying back last week and packing up our first home.

While we were home, we had a family dinner to celebrate Christmas early.
It was so nice to be with family and I loved putting our table together.

Last week I also planned the bird's work holiday party. We hosted it at Tellers, complete with catered texmex, a live band and homemade desserts.
In other news, the bird and I are off to Spain and Portugal on Wednesday! So excited to celebrate Christmas and New Years abroad this year. We're headed to Madrid, Porto and Lisbon. If you have any recommendations, we'd love to hear them!

Happy Christmas week!

Can't wait to hear more about the trip! I watched 4 Christmases last night and I laughed so hard when all the flights got delayed! Good thing that's a movie and not real life :)

So exciting that you're staying in Austin and were able to sell your house so quickly! Glad you got to spend an early Christmas with the fam, and that tablescape is gorgeous!

Enjoy every second of your Spain and Portugal trip! We went there last year, and Lisbon was our favorite city of the whole trip - amazing! Can't wait to stalk your recap pics <3
