I really, really, really appreciate living in Austin. Even though we live on the edge of the Hill Country, we have an Austin address. We literally have the best of both worlds. I drive all the way into town every day, so I go from seeing deer graze behind our house
to admiring the Austin skyline in the morning light.
I’ve posted plenty about the Texas Hill Country,
and oh, did I mention my love of the bottoms of bridges?
But what I also love about Austin is its odd mixture of old and new, beautiful and butt ugly, clutter and empty lots. It’s never boring.I took the picture below from my car window the other day. It shows exactly what I mean.
Well, maybe you have to have been here. But it’s one of the things I appreciate.
