Weekly Kickoff

Shipping Container Swimming Pools

Can you feel it?  Summer is in the air.  I don’t want to rush spring time though (it’s my favorite season).  Here in Austin, it’s staying light out longer and the temperature during the days is creeping up.  But it’s still cool enough at night that I can leave the bedroom window open.

Soon school will be out, and I’ll be writing these posts from our neighborhood pool, as I  watch my kiddo swim with all his friends.  I’ll dust off my old Bianchi, and he will soon have his training wheels off,  and together we will ride the 2 short blocks where we will hang out with neighbors and friends in the shade while the little ones splash and dive together.

This is how memories are created.  Together.  Outside.

This week I’ve gathered some tips from local Austin bloggers as well as the usual home ideas and some productivity hacks.  Enjoy and share?
