[Road Trippin'] Colorado Springs to Austin

I made it to Austin!

Sam flew up to Colorado Springs on Sunday night so he could do the drive down with me on Monday. We finally arrived at our destination around 1am Monday night. Since then I've been busy starting my new job, getting used to riding a bike everywhere again (a single speed!), finding a place to live, keeping up with school work and getting to know my new city. I apologize it's been to quiet around here. I'll be back to blogging regularly next week. In the meantime, I'll share some pictures from the drive.

It was a really fun and beautiful drive. Texas is a huge state, especially to someone from Rhode Island. Sam bought a lollipop with a scorpion in it at a rest stop in New Mexico, he didn't eat it, which is a good thing 'cause that's kinda gross. We were both really excited to drive through New Mexico since neither one of us had been there. That's my 34th state! Only 16 more to go! 

On Tuesday Sam made us a late breakfast that was super delicious! Scrambled eggs with my Spicy Black Bean Burgers mixed in with Black Kale. SO GOOD! I think he also added extra garlic and hot peppers. This would make awesome breakfast burritos!

In other exciting news, I've bought a domain name so this blog is getting official. I can't wait to get the new site up and going, although it may be a little while. I'll also be starting a new feature that'll have lots of advice about gardening and sustainable living from Sam. So stay tuned!

What have you all been up to?

Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh you know...going on short plane rides, loooooooong car rides, taking pictures, eating food, getting in trouble at work, taking this awesome girl I know all over the city to find her a couple of cool roommates and a really cool place to live...the usual stuff. XD


  2. Congrats, Joy! I'm sure everything will come together and it will feel like home very soon! Let me know if I can help with anything! <3 Melody

    1. Thanks Melody! It's already starting to feel like home! I love it here!
