Austin in a Weekend

Personally, I adore Austin; it’s a quick three-hour drive from Dallas, where I live with my husband, our daughter and our hilariously large English mastiff. Though neither my husband nor I are from Austin, we actually got married in a sweet town called Buda just outside of the city limits. All of our wedding weekend festivities took place at wonderful restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and bars around the city, cementing Austin as a forever special place in our hearts.

Here are some of our favorite places to visit when we’re in town, as well as some spots we’ve been wanting to check out.
