Oh what a week – and one where feelings were flying as often as passengers.  We enjoy those weeks where there are more interesting topics to write about than time in the day.  At the same, time, it would be nice to actually catch up on some of our long overdue trip reports.  Maybe one day the weekly update will not be quite so “real time” and newsworthy.

I was finally back on the road this week and it looks like Jim may soon be back to project travel as well.  We’ve certainly enjoyed the routine of domestic bliss but it is odd to do the 9 to 5 thing!  The rainy weather has been on and off in Texas – with it, everything is lush and green!

Here is the weekly update recap of what we wrote about:

Hot Topics

Round Up

We love to read many media sites.  Our Round Up posts are an opportunity to share some of our favorite finds with our readers.  While we sometimes have a loose theme, they are often a mashup of a variety of articles, photos, and videos we found interesting.  This week we shared two Round Ups:


We love Instagram!  This week we tried something new and we LIVE Instagrammed the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival’s Rise + Dine Brunch event on Saturday.  Hopefully our readers enjoyed that, whether in real time or later.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the weekly update:

We hope you’ll follow us on Instagram to see more of the photos from our week.  We typically share photos from our travels and kitchen adventures as well as projects around the homestead.

This week I’m off to Georgia and then we’ll have a weekend to explore in Dallas/Fort Worth.  Hopefully the spring weather will cooperate!
