day one //

first day in austin, and its already pulled me in with its friendly residents, super cool areas of town, iced vanilla lattes and totally laid back style. 

i started my morning at the famous jos. and im sure ill make it back there before i go. i could have spent hours in uncommon objects, purchased  an awesome film slide of dapper looking gentleman and toy dinosaur with a cactus growing out its back. of course. grabbed tacos at torchys taco truck, thanks to mary carolines suggestion. oh my word, so good. even got to get a quick shoot in with kate + some GIANT looking succulents [can i carry this back to atlanta?] ended the night at homeslice pizza. where i had an amazing conversation with omar, who challenged me to pray + listen on this journey, continue to explore and never count out the experiences that happen. whether i expect them or not.

i also started a new little project called #moeblakewashere, where i took a polaroid of a cool spot, and left it there for someone to find and keep as their own. hope it inspires people to be creative, look around, and if anything.. go see new places. 

love from austin.
