A Morning at the Farm

We’ve been meaning to visit one of Austin’s urban farms since we moved back in January and finally got around to it a few weeks ago. We headed east to explore Springdale Farm, and it was a delightful way to pass 30 minutes on a gorgeous Saturday morning in October. There was a bridal party there preparing for a wedding later that day, and it was so rustic-chic (rustichic?) that all of a sudden I wanted to have another wedding just so I could have it there, under the trees and carnival lights, with mismatched china on the banquet tables and chickens hanging out in the background.

We arrived a little late, so there wasn’t A TON of produce, but we bought a ginormous sweet potato and a jar of what turned out to be delicious pear and sage preserves. YUM.

But mainly it gave me a good backdrop for some Camden-in-suspenders photos.

Biking Saguaro National Park

I’ve only just begun this blog, and already I’m behind. Le sigh.

Well a few weekends ago we headed out to Saguaro National Park East to bike their scenic loop. It’s been on our to-do list for a loooong time, so I’m glad we finally got around to doing it. Our friends Ashley, Andrew and Sarah joined us, and it was a gorgeous day and fun ride. Although a couple of the hills were pretty killer for this novice. But it meant brunch afterwards at 47 Scott was much deserved.

This woman is a for-real triathlete.

Girls. Note to double-jointed-elbow self: don’t sit like that.

No fair – Sarah showered and changed into something cute for brunch.

Love the 47 Scott patio.
