It's the simple things in life that really make it go from good to great. I forgot how happy wind chimes make me. The sound of the wind rustling through the trees mixed with the delicate little chimes lightly clanging happily together has such a relaxing effect. Surprisingly, they bring on nostalgic feelings, as well… my grandparents’ old farm, the volunteer housing courtyard at Mission Honduras, my backyard at home in Arkansas… all different but equally memorable. Times like this really make me miss my family... We have some sleeping bags and a very nice blowup mattress. (And it even holds air again!) (hint hint)
As I sit on the back porch, sipping my Earl Grey green tea, looking at the cloudless sky, listening to my neighbor’s porch chimes chiming away, I can’t help but realize how incredibly happy I am to be right where I am. Come and join me. I have an open seat and some extra tea.

Lately we have been frequenting a trailer on South Congress that sells cupcakes... oh man are they good. The Michael Jackson Whipper Snapper is our favorite so far (chocolate cupcake, cream cheese icing, shot of whipped cream injected into the center of the cake).
Next on our list to visit is Flip Happy Crepes. Anyone up for a smoked salmon w/ herbed cream cheese spinach and tomato crepe along with a whipped peanut butter w/ dark chocolate sauce, bananas and almonds crepe for desert? All of this served out of a trailer, of course! :)
We love living in Austin...
Due to the growing trend and the increasing distance and time zones between us all, we have decided to undergo the upkeep of a blog. Hopefully this will not make unnecessary the beloved phone calls from friends and loved ones, but will help all to feel a little less distant and out of touch with our life.
We want to be able to post together and separately, so if the post ends in: "jxxc" we posted together, "jmc" Jen posted, "jwc" Jay posted.
We're THAT awesome... and are trying to make our blog as complicated as possible... :)
