Taner and I originally dreamed of buying a house just outside of Austin. We wanted more land and pretty country roads. We couldn't make that work with our currently lifestyle and jobs and opted to live in the city instead.
Our friends have also been thinking about moving outside of Austin and asked us to look at studio/living spaces with them today. We ate BBQ (they did...I am a vegetarian), looked through an antique store, and visited one of the coolest spaces I've seen.
I'm selfishly hoping they end up finding a place in Taylor. Their work/live space sounds amazing and the town is a great mix of quiet and cool. I can't wait to visit again.
