Now take that image and apply it to my entire life. My apartment, my car, my legs that probably haven't been shaved in 3 weeks, my schedule, and my head.
Everything is kind of like:
So, my apologies as I try to catch up.
First, Breck and I had a hot date with some wildlife. We headed South to Fossil Rim, a wildlife reserve that acts as kind of a drive-through petting zoo.
The animals were... friendly?
The zebra and I seemed to be getting along when he totally freaked out and started yelling at me. What a brat.
Everyone was congratulating Breck on getting that second picture, but the truth was he got like 20 of them! I was begging him to get us out of there and he was just laughing at me from over on the safe side of the car. I won't be choosing him for my team if there is a zombie outbreak.
After the park we ventured down to Hico, Texas to check out their famous chocolate shop.
...and got one of everything. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The next weekend I took a quick trip down to San Antonio to see my parents. The initial goal was to spend all day Saturday sewing so that I could cross another item off my 25 before 25 list. In the end, I said screw it and my mom and I went hiking instead. Good things happen when you procrastinate.
On the way back to Dallas I stopped at Hamilton Pool, a natural spring outside of Austin. I'd seen it listed on a bunch of "Places to see in Texas" lists and wanted to hike down there myself.
It was surreal.
Until you're right on top of it, there are no indicators that this spot could exist. But there it is, the most beautiful little paradise you could hope for. Make the trip to see it if you're ever in Austin!
The weekend after San Antonio I went scouting for a photoshoot with a friend and found this little oasis off a sketchy dirt road in Mckinney.
The water is actually that color? Yeah.
Texas is putting up its A game this season and I tip my hat to it.
