Documenting our happy days together with my iPhone camera has become one of my favorite things to do. Here are some snapshots of the little things that made this week extra magical…

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

  • seriously you are making me want to go to texas so much it’s not even fair dude. *sigh* maybe i’ll make it to the lone star state eventually. also your flower headband is rad you should totally put up a tutorial 😀

  • my husband and i are looking to move to austin in the near future! isnt that city just awesome? so much character! we love the mix of the urban, city vibe with the country, bbq style. such an amazing place. if you ever go back, lake travis is really cool, and salt lick bbq is a MUST! its a bbq where you can byob! picnic tables everywhere, fresh-squeezed lemonade and delicious food!


  • Recently found your blog and I love it! I’m in Austin and Torchy’s is my favorite taco place, so I’m glad I don’t live closer to one. I’d have to eat there every day. 🙂 Glad you got to visit before it gets really hot.

  • oh you’re going to LOVE houston! make sure you make it to the montrose/westheimer area…. so hip and full of life! Lots of vintage shops and things. Barnaby’s Cafe is also a must 🙂

  • seems like you’re having a wonderful time together! i really, really like your blog. it’s so inspiring and simply happy-go-lucky! thanks for sharing!! x

  • Love! My husband and I have been scheming a trip to Austin soon. Thanks for sharing your adventures! I am a long-time silent reader, but this is my first comment. I adore the journal above and recently signed up for your journal e-course. Question: How did you get the dictionary pages into the journal? Is this one of your lovely customizations? I am such a word nerd and I love it!

  • Man, so much LOVE in the air


  • Ahh I spy a Madewell bag in one of those pictures! I work there and wish I had been in the day you guys stopped by!

  • I’m from Austin but currently live up North in Denton for school. I MISS IT SO MUCH!!
    Love the pics, though 🙂

  • I would love to go to texas. It looks so sunny. It’s been cold and rainy here in MO. while you’ve been gone.

  • I’m moving to Corpus Christi with my hubby, B. and our two Wiener dogs next month from MN. SO excited! These pics really inspire me to go. And who knows, in a couple years we may be moving up to Austin! Thank you Elsiecake! You are such a lovely person! YOu always brighten my day.

  • Elsie, you inspire me every single day. You have such cute crafting ideas and I love how you document the special moments you and your husband share. It definitely got me excited to do the same with my sweetie. Thank you for sharing your beautiful life with us all.

  • Cute, cute, cute! I’m loving these pictures from your travels 🙂 I’m so excited for you that you’re able to go w Jeremy, it makes me happy. It’s so easy to see how in love with each other you are. Also- I finally got around to listening to some more stuff from Sucre and they are awesome. I’m hoping that there will be a show in MO at some point? Hopefully there wasn’t already and I missed it 🙁 gonna need to look into that today. I am def thinking concert date night/road trip for myself and my husband.

  • Ah, this makes me lust after a road trip? Rx

  • These are WONDERFUL!! I absolutely LOVE Austin, one of my best friends lives there so I get to visit every once in awhile. Thanks for sharing! Your eye for detail is so wonderful.

    I just finished your Blog Love e-course, too! (I’m kicking off my graduation with a series about cleaning out your closet, this week! Yay for sprnig cleaning!)

    Thanks for everything!

  • AIRSTREAM! I may have an unhealthy obsession with Airstreams, and while driving the Alcan Highway (Alaska-Canada-Seattle) a few years back I saw a classic muscle-car towing an egg-sized Airstream and I fell in love.

    Austin looks awesome!


  • Ahhhhh! I love Austin. I am so jealous and can’t wait to vacation there myself VERY soon. Hope y’all are having an amazing time!

  • Yayayay! Austin is my hometown! Your picture are lovely, I am glad you enjoyed your stay.

  • You’re headed for Houston next? My home.
    Then I recommend heading to Berripop for the best frozen yogurt ever.My favorite location is in Rice Village. Then you should head to Taxi Taxi or Buffalo Exchange for some shopping. Now if you’re looking for things to do during the night, you should head to Poison Girl bar or Boheme. Both great laid back places. I hope you enjoy Houston. It’s a great city to live in. 😀

  • If you have kids someday, they’re going to have so much to look back on when they want to know more about you and Jeremy, how you met, and what the early days of marriage were like. What a wonderful thing to leave for them 🙂

  • Austin is a wonderful place, but you should check out San Marcos! There’s a super cute little coffee shop there called Wake the Dead Coffee. Super stylish little place… totally recommend it!

  • Aww you’re making me miss home! I moved from Austin to Boston last fall for college. So glad you had a great time there; it really is one of the best cities in the world!

  • Seriously you guys are so stinkin’ cute. I love the apple glasses btw =)

  • Austin! My home. <3 It’s so cool seeing places I’ve been to pop up in other people’s pictures. Torchy’s Tacos are the best.

  • Loving your instagram and photography roll of your trip!

  • Will you please, please, tell me how you do your hair like in the pictures where you have it up with a scarf around it? My hair has got so long I need to learn some nicce ways to put it up or it will just look dull, because it’s very flat.

  • I love your apple sunglasses! too cute, elsie 🙂

  • These pictures are so cute!

  • I adore Austin! We went down there for New Years a couple years ago, and had a blast. I would totally move down there if I could.

    Make sure to check out the bats flying over the river at sunset! I know it sounds a little creepy, but all the locals told me to to check it out but I forgot to! Maybe it’s not the right time of year, though…

  • HOW do you do your hair like that??? I loved these photos, makes me want to make the move to Austin!

  • YAY! I’m excited to see where you go while in Houston! I’ve been looking forward to the show at Fitz for weeks!

  • Austin looks really cool, It’s going straight to my ‘places to go’ list !
