I’m excited to see the city in a completely different season, especially since it’s going to be all decorated for Christmas when we go. Continue reading

It makes for a very unique lake experience. Continue reading

Zion National Park

But we’re all settled in now and I absolutely love our new house! My commute to work went from 1.5 hours to 15 minutes, and same for Matt. I have so much more free time now to explore the local parks and restaurants! There’s two huge parks within walking/biking distance of my house… perhaps one day soon I’ll do a post about Houston parks! Continue reading
