Matt and I took a vacation.
Not a big one. Just 4 days.
It was 36 degrees when we left Pittsburgh.
And 82 when we landed in Austin, TX.
It was kind of significant for me, because it was the first time I left Eddie for that long. Four whole nights. I was pretty nervous about it, but believe or not…
Everything was fine. Ha ha.
I vacationed the opposite way from how I usually vacation.
I usually do tons of research. Find the coolest places. Like the coolest non-tourist places. And then meticulously plan when we are going where. You know, because I want to squeeze every possible once of fun out of our vacation. And see everything!
But this time, I planned nothing. Well, almost nothing. I looked up a few areas/neighborhoods that were rumored to be cool. Other than that, nothing. Mostly because I was too busy beforehand to plan anything. But it worked out for us. We just wandered and strolled. When we saw a cool place, we stopped for a while. We let our Uber driver decide where we would have dinner. It was super relaxing.
We ate, we drank, we slept in. I napped. Every day. I took a nap every day! I am so happy that I did not succumb to the pressure to overachieve this vacation.
We got to see a lot of live music.
We wasted time shopping for a bunch of weird trinkets.
And ate a lot of midnight pizza.
I got to meet up with, and spend some time with one of my favorite people, Irene. Who lives in Houston.
We spent a few hours aimlessly checking out some of the city parks.
We looked at the Moody Theater. Twice. This was probably the highlight of the trip for Matt.
I gotta say. It was pretty glorious.
