On Sunday, my mom and I participated in the cicLAvia, but instead of biking, we walked from East LA to Echo Park. It was definitely a good workout and I have a few weird tan lines to show for it. If I decide to do it again, I am probably going to bike because there were only a handful of people walking the route (maybe because it was about 94 degrees outside).


Ended Sunday night with dinner at Taihei with the fam.

Found some photos from our road trip that I forgot to post:

While in Marfa, we stayed at El Cosmico, which is a camp ground in which you can rent out trailers, tepees and tents to stay in (I believe you can even bring your own tents). We stayed in the Royal Mansion trailer and if you are ever in Marfa, I highly recommend staying at this place. We loved it! Definitely plan to stay here again if we come back.

The famous Prada sculpture right outside of Marfa. So glad I got to see this on our trip back home.

C.S. Lewis quote

 Finally made it back home to CA last Sunday, and it has just been a whirlwind of unpacking and meeting up with friends and family. I am happy to be home, but it was definitely bittersweet leaving Houston. Moving away from home has opened my eyes to what life has to offer. I am so thankful for the opportunities I had in Houston and for all of the people I met. Houston will always hold a special place in heart and I hope to be back to visit soon.
