The beginning of February my mom and I took a two day drive to Austin, TX to help my grandmother go through her garage. We had a blast throughout the week and lots of adventures. On the way to Austin, we stopped at the Cadillac Ranch. It was really chilly and windy that day!

Then one of the highlights was an amazing costume and vintage shop called "Lucy in Disguise" that was huge and full of treasures.
Of course no trip would be complete without some great before and after shots. Here is what my grandmother's garage looked like when we started working.
And after! We went through all but a couple boxes and threw away over 8 boxes of paper trash!
It was fascinating to sift through 85 plus years of family history. Whether you like it or not, you are like your family members. The more I dug through old boxes, I realized how much I am like my mother and how much she is like her mother, even if nobody wants to admit it. It really is quite fascinating I think.
The best part of the whole trip was spending time with my mom. We had lots of time to chat, bond, and laugh. I'm so lucky to have become such good friends with my mom.
Who knows what future adventures we will embark upon.
