"I believe every person in our life, 
every relationship, everything is
there for a reason and when you
really pay attention there are certain
little clues we get. It's so crystal
clear what the next step is, it's just
this puzzle and everything is in its
right place and as we grow we take
the next step, the dots get
connected and we eventually
become what we are supposed to be."

Things You See

I always forget how much more I see of Austin when I'm on foot. Need to be checking things out more often before the 200 degree weather hits. Sunday morning I decided to go out and tour South Lamar while there was no traffic. For the record, I really wish I thought of this prior to the demolitioning of Alamo Drafthouse. Damn hindsight 20/20. Not too worry, there was tons to see.
Very important place on S. Lamar, Saxon Pub

 Alamo Shopping Center was here...

Stores that made up the Alamo Shopping Center. I really need to look at the renderings of the new shopping center, see if it meets with my approval, ha!

I have driven up and down S. Lamar countless times and never once have I noticed this precious green house...

Nope never noticed this yellow building either. And these are things I noticed when on foot on S. Lamar.

 I stumbled upon this wall while downtown the other morning. I know it's been there FOREVER...but you know when you're walking you notice things a lot more. Love how we use the sides of our buildings for art...makes my heart sing.

Yes, you needed to see the wall twice.

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”

What's Next

Dear Blog: We've been together almost 7 years now and I'm hitting a lull. Kinda like the married folks get around this time period, or so I've heard. I have no idea where to take our relationship. It's odd because last year was a blast and I had all this momentum going into 2013. Then BAM, out of nowhere I had no interest to hit the publish button. Don't get me wrong I've seen some beautiful stuff, just haven't found my MoJo for a full post...
Much Love,
Lost Blogger 
PS- isn't that room magnificent? Baby Grand w/ zebra rug, yes!!!

The 5th Wall

No, I haven't lost my mind, the ceiling is considered the 5th wall in a room. Painting, tiling, wood on the ceiling is a great way to add some WOW to a room...check it out!

Hmm, seems 2013 has started off with a bang, and I haven't had a chance to catch my breath. Clearly, blogging has gone by the wayside. Good thing I had quotes figured out, or it would have been radio silence. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of posts to be written, it's the time to sit still long enough to write/post...
Here's what I HAVE been working on so far for the new year. Clean eating...finally! 
I think it's safe to say my health and fitness has taken a nose dive over the past few years. This year I've decided to finally do something about it. Lucky for me Whole Foods sent out their yearly 28-day challenge in December about the same time I was trying to form my nutrition plan. So, I'm going to a plant based diet meaning no dairy, no processed. I'm not much of a meat eater so I can take or leave that food option. I started my new plan this past week and I'm still figuring things out. I've always spent Sundays cooking for the week, however, my new plan needs some tweaking in order to keep me from starving. I had some emergency runs to the grocery while at work and spent evenings cooking more food. I'm hopeful this next week is more successful.  
Also, I've started Pilates and am LOVING it!!!
That's it for me, how's your new year going?
