Expedition Austin is Officially Launched!


We had such a fabulous launch party at The ABGB! It was a wonderful celebration of a year of hard but rewarding work and our little labor of love. The weather was cold and rainy, so we brought the fun inside, and the kids had a good time completing this special made-for-indoors mission. Next time you go to ABGB, print it out –you’ll also need to bring some colored pencils or crayons and a deck of cards!

Virginia and I are so grateful to friends old and new for coming out and supporting  us. We were also very grateful to many locations highlighted in our book for donating fun party swag (Jim-Jim’s, Lucy’s Fried Chicken, Blanton Museum Shop, the LBJ Store, The Rowing Dock, Laguna Gloria and P. Terry’s), to the awesome ABGB for letting us hold our celebration there, and for some very exciting coverage in the Austin American Statesman and on 365thingsaustin.com. We’re still reveling in the local love and support! Thanks, friends!
