Well, Christmas has come and gone just like that, in a twinkle of an eye.
The Christmas tree sits bare with gifts no longer underneath it, and discarded boxes and wrapping paper are not far behind.
Toys have been played with and meals have been had or soon to be. And oh what meals we’ve had with dinner soon on the way.
What a joy it’s been to celebrate the birth of Christ with family, friends, and neighbors this season.
Speaking of neighbors, one of my neighbors so graciously shared a gift that has me writing at this at this very moment.
Summer has come to an end here in Austin although the weather keeps attempting to inch its way up beyond 90 degrees.
And with Summer coming to an end, my household has embarked upon what is to become many years of practices and games as our oldest son ventures into soccer this year.
It’s heating up in Texas, and things are getting quite active around Volente Beach.
As I work the days away, I often see party buses to and fro with intense beach laughter and frolicking.
There’s a bit more loud music playing throughout the day than the norm, and the marina island is always packed with a party barge or two in full effect.
Truth be told, it’s quite a refreshing view to experience new ownership spicing things up around the sleepy village of Volente.
I’m back with another domain spotting. This time I didn’t have to travel as far as we did for family pictures.
I decided to stay home one day this week to celebrate our daughter turning 1 and boy #2 turning 3 years old.
I was walking out of the front door of our home to take out the trash and spotted a service truck in front of my neighbors yard.
I really didn’t pay much attention to as I headed back into the house.
But then the the domain stood out to me when I noticed the gentleman walking the exterior of my neighbors home was a pest control technician.
Pest control companies always peek my interest because there are quite a number here in Austin, Texas.
The other day I ventured over to check mail and found my monthly edition the the Community Impact.
It’s filled with all sorts of articles, highlights, and advertisements pertaining to the greater Austin metroplex.
I personally read it for the latest updates on new businesses launching or unfortunately closing.
Then there is also the red hot real estate market here in Austin that I like to keep tabs on.
But the most interesting thing that captivates my attention are the various ad types.
From small mom and pop to larger middle market companies, there are quite a few companies hoping their ad catches the eye of a potential customer.
Spring is here with Summer fast approaching. Ironically, the weather we’ve had a few days this week here in Texas has me thinking it’s fall.
I know, I know. It’s nothing but oasis and the dry and hot summer days will be here to remind me in no time.
With Spring almost behind and summer here, I’m starting to see quite a few recreational vehicles, also known as RVs, take to the road.
Well, we’re 3 weeks into having our baby girl grace us with her presence. She’s doing quite well, even sleeping 4-hour blocks at a time.
We’re so blessed to have her as a part of our family.
In between the meals, flowers and well wishes, there have been quite a few treats that arrived. One of the most recent sweet treats has prompted this post due to the domain on its packaging.
I was watching television with my littles this morning, and an interesting commercial came on between cartoon episodes about a healthy snack subscription.
I wasn’t really intrigued with the commercial until I saw the same of the snack subscription and it’s domain name.
Minding my own business, I was traveling form the Egg and I Restaurants located at 183 and Lakeline Blvd to my office out in Volente.
As I headed north and circled underneath 183 to head south, I encountered an interesting banner hanging in in front of a familiar Texas-based and founded supermarket.
The banner was quite interesting. You could tell this company put a lot of effort in branding this new service offering for their customers.
In a world of always connected devices, even a supermarket, also known as a grocery market or store, is finding a way to use the internet to its advantage.
I’m sure you’re wondering what company I’m referencing, right?
I sat outside for a bit this morning before the brutal Texas heat reared its ugly head.
My hope was to allow our boys to run off their breakfast tacos and chocolate milk in the cool of the morning before being held captive indoors for most of the day.
The boys did play, and even my baby girl got a chance to catch a bit of Vitamin D too.
But what caught my eye as my kids played and enjoyed themselves was a small black compact car that passed by.
The car passed by rather slow as if it was lost and trying to find it’s way to a specific house along our street.
At last, the car pulled in front of our neighbors house and I was fumbling and bumbling in an attempt to pull out my phone to snap a shot of the car’s company advertisement.
