this is my last night before i leave the west coast. in california, but didn’t make it out to los angeles before dark…
i have been absolutely humbled by the beauty and kindness of strangers on this trip.
after austin, we stayed a night in amarillo, tx. dinner was amazing…i had bbq brisket at the country barn. check out their menu.
there is also an incredible donut shop there, called…the donut shop. i didn’t get one of these for breakfast, but in hindsight should’ve.
the weather in texas was miserable; i have never seen so much fog in my life! but as we neared the border with new mexico, things started looking up.
yes, things got much brighter…
we skirted through to the painted desert. let me just say that if you have the opportunity to come here, DO. it took my breath away many times.
and i fell in love with petrified wood again…loved it when i was a kid, for some reason.
and then on to california, so that i could catch my plane today… :)
hope you’ve all enjoyed seeing some of my trip. peace.

since i last wrote, my friends and i were in virginia. our next stop was asheville, nc. this is rebel, my backseat travel companion.
our blue ridge mt morning was unbelievable.
from there, we ended up in new orleans. thanks to aforementioned cat, we got a sweet pet-friendly hotel room just outside the french quarter.
my favorite street, in my fave converse.
and then…we hit austin. and while we were at dinner, my friend spotted an aspiring designer – christie – who was wearing one of our knit tops. she loves fp, and i appreciate that she let me take her pic for the blog. :)

before my friends’ and my spiritual reading (!), we decided to get some breakfast…i haven’t been to morning glory in a long, long time. but it’s just as good every time i go. this was our server…kind of a character, but super nice.
close-up of my southern frittata – incredible. full of sausage and okra and goodness knows what…
and look at – even a straight-up scrambled egg looks delicous. (the biscuits are killer)
sam’s morning glory diner. 10th and fitzwater. get there early…
