Dancing with my 91 year old Grampa, the only grandparent I've grown up with, at my youngest brother's wedding. It's amazing to see him boogie!

I love to spread the word about Austin non-profits doing amazing things. I hadn't heard of Casa Marianella until one of my writers shared it with me. I'm so happy to share it with you.

Even before the Pearl Harbor attack and our entry into WWII, Americans found ways to serve our European allies.
 
75 YRS AGO THIS WEEK: American Volunteer Ambulance Corps aid Europeans prior to Pearl Harbor. http://tw.gs/2ywdeZ

"Among the millions of U.S. citizens who last week clamored for an opportunity to aid Great Britain and France, there were few who did not feel a sense of frustration at the dreadful speed of events abroad and the slow progress of this nation's supporting steps. No longer was there any doubt of America's will to help. Old geographical inhibitions lay shattered. From coast to coast Americans of every age - with the exception of Communists, pro-Germans, and a few ideological pacifists and isolationists - wanted to assist the Allies in some degree. But only a handful had found the means to serve. On these pages you see a few young men who have found a way to help in full measure by enlisting as drivers with the American Volunteer Ambulance Corps in France."

Freedmen's is possibly the best underrated BBQ in Austin. Beautiful historic building, outdoor seating, craft cocktails and THE HOLY TRINITY PLATE.

I've been working with Sumi for the past two tax seasons (FY 2012 and 2013) and am privileged to have her as my CPA. She does my husband and my personal taxes every year, as well as the forms needed for our two LLCs. She is incredibly responsive and goes out of her way to help. Because of her strong (but beautiful!) accent, I find it easiest to communicate with her in person. But she always makes herself available to meet with me, talk on the phone, or email. I highly recommend her services.

Taqueria La Playa is a hidden gem. It doesn't get any critical acclaim that I've ever seen, but it is irreplaceable for those who appreciate authentic Mexican food. My husband spent his childhood in Mexico, and searched for YEARS for authentic limonada. He never found it until La Playa. The look on his face when he takes his first sip is priceless. It's like he's a little kid again. For my part, I love the horchata - the best I've found in Austin so far. We've tried the tacos and I enjoy the enchiladas verdes. It's good. The people are friendly. It is what it is and we love it.

Love the HOPE Farmers Market. Strong community feeling, with quality vendors. Each vendor is giving back to the community in some way, which makes you want to support them even more. Coolhaus, Kuna Kicks, Nile Valley tea...just some of the things I love about HOPE.

This cheesecake is mind-blowingly good. Michael is an amazing cook and the sweetest person. He's always coming up with creative cheesecake recipes, including perfect seasonal choices. Cannot recommend CinnaMan highly enough.

Kong Screenprinting rocks the house. The team is full of talent (decades worth), their work is solid and creative, and if you're not careful...they may just become your friends. Definitely recommend as your go-to screenprinters. They specialize in fabric printing.

Visited East Side Showroom on a busy weekend night. The wait for a table was extremely long, but we whiled the time away standing at the bar. It was worth the wait. We were right up front when the music started, and the band was excellent. Service definitely skirts on snobby, but the drinks are done up right.
