A blog about my love and a love-themed wall mural tour in Austin, TX.
It’s hard to believe Brandon and I will be approaching our 6 year anniversary this Sunday. I can’t imagine what those years would have looked like without him. His patience and humbleness continue to blow me away. His ability to stay calm through the phone calls about my speeding tickets, or how I again, didn’t manage to clean the house even though I was home all day with the kids… well there is your answer, with the kids. I mean it when I say we were made for each other, I don’t think there is anyone else out there in the world that would be able to put up with me and my crazy weird self.
A few weeks ago, we went up to Austin, TX and had a hunt for any “love” themed wall murals. We didn’t make it to all of them before the sun went down but the ones we were able to grab were perfect. This makes for a fun double date, by the end you have a full, satisfied belly (because Austin has amazing food at every corner), and pictures for days!

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of the two of us in front of this wall. I was wearing a unicorn mask so I wasn’t in my right state of mind.

Don’t you love a good pun? This wall is fun, bright, and has great natural lighting.

One thing we didn’t know before visiting was how hard the photos would be to take! We are about 2-3 feet above the sidewalk on a narrow upper walkway. Also, this is directly in front of a parking lot which was completely full because the next-door neighbor was Emo’s (music venue) and there was a show about to happen that day so it was packed. My friend had to climb on some cars to take these, thankfully we didn’t tick off anyone. IT’S FOR THE BLOG.

I wish I had the strength to fight off some gnarly looking monsters.

Ask me about my melons. This photo wasn’t taken on the same day as the others. I was at this wall with Sarah and we got stopped to be in a collab video (watch it here, and a small clip here) interview with The American Heart Association and Subway, they just asked us about our favorite fruits and veggies and if we ate them on a regular basis. Of course we do! We love our fruits and veggies!
I really do.
That concludes my Love Tour of Austin. If you’re interested in planning a date hopefully this guide will help direct you. My husband tried to line up the order from the furthest north down to south since that’s how we would be coming home.
Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage,
Aujourd’hui plus qu’hier et bien moins que demain.
(For, you see, each day I love you more,
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.)
