Our summer deep in the heart of Texas has ended and today we’ll be starting our exciting trek back. You may be thinking I’m being sarcastic by saying ‘exciting’, seeing as how we’ll be in the car for a total of 24 hours, but that it 100% literal excitement. In fact, so much of it that I haven’t been able to sleep for the last week. We’ve had an amazing experience figuring out a new place together, but we’ve sorely missed our bed, family, and friends in that order- just kidding… sort of.

Before we go, I want to express my feelings to Ol’ San Anton. I’ve thought a lot about our interesting relationship and decided the best way to do so was by making a list of a few things we will and will not miss about you. So here you go…


Frontage roads
Sweverything (Sweaty-everything)
Nutty-nuts drivers
Being glued to Google Maps
Texas-sized roaches
Ron’s apartment
A bed that creaks with every move
Jellyfish stings
The worst couch in the world
Not having enough friends to play Bang
TV commercials
Flash floods that cause power outages
Dreaming of Noodles & Co. / Costa Vida
Did I mention the INSANE drivers?!?!


Me-Day err’day
Backyard tennis court/pool
Southern charm
Skiwampus trees
Texas-sized portions
Rolling hills
Whattaburger’s Spicy Ketchup
Humidity hair
12 hours of beauty rest
Olmos Park
Alamo Drafthouse
The Office marathons
Exploring a new city with my best friend and best lover


P.S.- We just added pics on our Travels page under New York and San Antonio so check it out!

    I love the line about Troy being your best lover. Intriguing. (Troy, you may want to look into that)
    Also I think Bang or some other game should become a frequent tradition, The location of which can rotate.
