We are fixin' to head out pretty soon to Austin and will be gone until the new year.
My holiday wish, as we wrap up 2007, is that you may know joy & peace in the coming year and may all your sweet dreams come true.
When I first met Jimmy, he played me a song called, "Texas". I can't speak about all of Texas, but I fell in love with Austin when I first visited 10 years ago. It was completely different than what I was expecting ~ which, at the time, was pretty much republican cowboys rocking large belt buckles.
I couldn't have been more wrong. Austin is more like Texas' version of Berkeley, CA and I am excited to spend a few days there, breathing some fresh air and connecting once again to the people and places in Jimmy's beloved hometown.
I found the video for the song and wanted to share it with you. It's pretty cheesy, but when he sings about the "warm winds blowing" in Texas, it brings back many amazing Austin memories for me.
Happy Holiday's all ya'll!
