Happy Wednesday, Y'all! I find myself saying this often, but especially lately:
I am SO grateful to live in Austin, Texas! The people, the culture, the food, the music, the values, the architecture, the beautiful lakes, hills and trails are all what had me fall in love from day 1 and what has me still in a love affair with Austin.
On top of all that, we have a growing economy with strong job growth despite the current recession. Did you know we are #8 among the top 50 metros for job growth? Also, we are still being rated at the top of the best cities to live in the country. This extraordinary quality of life coupled with the diversity within our economy is what I think is driving the job growth, and therefore, the strong home sales we're seeing.
Keep reading for more about our great city and some ideas for more ways to enjoy it this weekend. Cheers!
