I have just returned from a wonderful vacation visiting two dear friends, Jessica and Joel. They’ve recently made Austin, Texas their home and have been encouraging me to visit the city they have grown to love. I had the opportunity to take a week off from work and decided to go. I love spending time with Jessica and Joel. Not only are they great hosts (who make excellent coffee), but they also take me to neat places, introduce me to new books and movies, and did I mention the coffee?
