As long as I have know Susan, she has travelled to Austin, Texas, to visit her family there. She always tells me great storeis of good times had by all, shopping fun, and cool new spots to add to my long list of places to visit. On a recent trip to the Lone Star State, for a cousins’ wedding, Susan took the time to send us a few tips about Austin. Ice Cream from Amy’s and shopping on South Congress!  I have always heard so much about Austin, and have wanted to attend the SXSW festival for years, but it looks like I need to shift this town to the top of my list of destinations I need to visit NOW!

“Howdy from the Lone Star State. You would love the shops on South Congress and don’t forget an ice cream from Amy’s! X Susan
