Texan Throwback - this time last year I was just home from a fantastic trip to beautiful Austin :) #wheretonext #greatmemories #AustinwithAisling #austintx #Austin #Texas #Holiday #city #usa #allthefood #allthebeers

In about a week, @ryandevoll is taking me on our first vacation to Barcelona and Paris! I’m excited and scared both at the same time (more excited though ☺️). We’ll be gone for about two weeks and will have our phones shut off - don’t worry, you’ll see our adventures when we return to the country. In the meantime, I’ll be stressing out if I will pack enough or not. 😂

“This love was a torment, and he resented bitterly the subjugation in which it held him; he was a prisoner and he longed for freedom.

Sometimes he awoke in the morning and felt nothing; his soul leaped, for he thought he was free; he loved no longer; but in a little while, as he grew wide awake, the pain settled in his heart, and he knew that he was not cured yet.” ― W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage

Happy Sunday my friends!
I wanted to share a book that I read as a teenager, and it has held a place in my heart ever since. It’s a coming of age story, with a boy-meets-girl storyline. I recommend this for anyone that is fascinated by the human experience.
