So, last month Mark, Josh and I piled into the car and drove the daunting fourteen hours to Austin, TX. OAC has been building a bridge of friendship from our home base here in Belle, MO all the way to a growing group of friends in Austin so when we arrived in Texas, we were greeted warmly! We spent the weekend browsing an amazing selection of Austin artists for the EAST (East Austin Studio Tour) as well as eating lots of tacos and exploring different parts of the massive city. Maybe I need to mention the tacos again because there were a lot. We went out a few nights and got to meet and socialize with several potential residents (one of whom will be joining our OAC family in the coming months!!) as well as old friends we’d met earlier this year on the farm.
Overall, it was an inspiring and refreshing trip!
