Happy Travel Snapshots in Texas

Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1Texas 1This past week has been a crazy blur as we traveled from Houston to Austin to Dallas and to Tyler. Texas has been fun! We have one more stop in Nashville and then we will be heading home. I am so proud of Jeremy and glad that I got to share the joy of his first tour with Sucré. It was amazing to meet some of you along the way!

These past three weeks have inspired me and stretched my creative spirit. I have an entire journal full of fresh ideas for this blog! Emma and I talked on the phone for hours today and we are so motivated for this coming season. Being able to meet so many of you in person has really meant a lot to me. I feel more connected to my readers than ever. I'm realizing that so many of you are kindred spirits… we all want the same things… to be creative, happy and inspired. I'm looking forward to sharing more and more projects and ideas with you here. Love you guys…. elsie 

  • Hi to all, how is the whole thing, I think every one is getting more from this web page.

  • I live outside of Tyler in a city called Longview! You should come back and visit during the summer for the Great Balloon races! They are so much fun! 🙂

  • thanks so much for inspiring me. i personally am trying to be brave in my creativity, and people like you help me dream bigger than my fear. 🙂

  • aww you drove right through my home town on the way to tyler =) sad i missed the dallas show

  • Eee! 🙂 This made me happy. I can’t believe you were in Tyler! I go to school there! How crazy! Glad you loved Texas. It’s a pretty great place to live. 🙂

  • Sounds (and looks) like a great trip. This is a good time to visit Texas as it’s about to get REAL hot! 🙂

  • Hey, I live in Nashville! Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to the show, but I bought Sucrè’s album and it is AMAZING. If you guys find any free time, check out Cafe Coco, on Louise Ave. They have great food and it’s a really cool hangout. 🙂 Have fun!

  • Texas is my home,and I absolutely love it here! Hope you enjoyed the hospitality!

  • You went to Tyler,Texas?? I used to live in a small town near there. Tyler was like the bug city where you could go shopping and out to ear.Fun stuff. Glad you guys had a nice time in Texas.

  • You have to share with us who makes your glasses. I am in need of a new pair! Thanks 🙂

  • Seeing you having such a great time in Texas makes me want to get out there ASAP!!! So glad you’re having a great time!

  • What a wonderful experience. It does charge the creative juices to be able to go somewhere new and you didn’t have to work so you can be supportive and enjoy your husband company along the way. Can’t wait to see what you come up with when you get back.


  • I’m bummed to have missed y’all in Dallas! That’s what I get for not checking the Sucré tour dates 🙁

  • you make texas look fun. it’s usually not, but has it’s moments. ;] i love your austin photos, such a fun city. i’m going there tomorrow for the day.

  • Love the blog. I am disappointed I missed the Dallas date this wk : (. Next time.. I look forward to making a visit to Red Velvet in the future. Thanks for all the tips and inspiration!

  • gorgeous photos, I have absolutely loved looking through your photo diaries!

  • Hi Elsie!

    I enjoyed the travel snapshots so much! You really have an eye for the right pictures.:) Oh, also I was wondering which program you use to add the arrows to your pictures.

    Thank you!


  • Gorgeous photos! So excited to see what the inspiration you gained enables you to do next! Awesome!


  • Some gorgeous pictures, I love the florist and succulent they are stunning.


  • Hey Elsie,
    so glad to hear you’re so excited and inspired – I am too! I love your photographs from Texas, it looks so interesting – little delights and treats at every corner! I especially love your shot of the Florists, truly gorgeous. I love your blog and reading about your life, adventures and DIYs, not to mention the excitement of owning and running your own business. I’m looking forward to this summer, to see if I can make some blog magic happen for myself! Keep up the great great work, lots of love, Katie. xxxxxxxx

  • My SIL is american but lives here in the UK they are thinking of moving back (to the South) and that makes me sad but I also think that if they do it would justify a trip to the states..and to visit your store! xoxo

  • I’m loving these travel photo posts!


  • Love the glasses and the sentence ‘to be happy, creative and inspired’. Beautiful quote.

  • Love all of the colors in these photos! All of the blues; so pretty.
    I’ve already said this but in case my comment got lost in the shuffle, it was soooo great to meet you in LA! 🙂

  • I love everything about your blog! You and your sis (and your guests) are all so creative which I turn has motivated my creative spirit….now before I buy something I ask myself if there could be a way I can make something like it! If you folks ever make a trip to Hawaii….big island to be exact I would love to see your take on this beautiful island through your camera lens!

  • Looking forward to seeing what’s to come!


  • Hello, color! I love Jeremy’s outfit 🙂
    I’m also glad that you enjoyed Big Tex. It’s pretty much the best state ever. And yess, the bbq is splendid.

  • You’re always welcome in Texas Elsie! Come back soon 🙂
