Almost four years ago (in June), Rick and I had our first date in one of our favorite cities, Austin. And while I haven’t been one to get super personal about our relationship here on this space, I’ve had so much encouragement and love from friends & family, that I want to share with you our engagement story and bits and pieces of the wedding planning process as we move forward!
As an alum of The University of Texas, that school, the city of Austin – they have my heart. So heading up to the city during the hoopla that is South by Southwest, now a serious mecca for tech, interactive, music, etc., was seriously fun and the city was totally buzzing with energy.
I stumbled across a pop-up shop for Southward Apparel inside the South Congress Kendra Scott store while in Austin. I immediately gravitated towards their comfy, cool screen printed tanks and tees, ultimately walking out with this adorable tank at a killer price tag.
I did it! Officially a TexasEx, I am a graduate from the University of Texas with a double major in broadcast journalism and political communications.
