In an effort to get my creative juices flowing before I went on vacation, I spent one Saturday tooling around East Austin taking photos. I decided to give myself a project of taking pictures of the signs of East Austin. I had a lot of fun and discovered some new places and rediscovered some old places. It was really fun. I think I need to do that more often.
I wound up eating that night at Eastside Cafe that night with my parents after I picked them up from the airport. They have the cutest little boutique in association with the cafe called Pitchforks and Tablespoons, which is a gardening and kitchen store. This is a lovely place to eat and I highly recommend it.
