Time continues to fly by as B and I live in Austin. It seems like we’ve blinked and now we’ve lived here over 6 months, even more excited B and I are close to celebrating our one year of being a couple! Since living in Austin we’ve had the best time exploring our new home, however we noticed we had not explored a few quintessential Austin places yet. So we made a plan!

B and I dedicated1–2 days to explore Austin and document the day’s findings with photos. Then we printed our favorites as a Square Print Set from Artifact Uprising!

On a rainy Saturday morning we grabbed coffee at one of our favorite local spots, Figure 8. We made a list of places we’ve wanted to go and places we’ve heard great things about, we even asked the baristas and people in line for their recommendations. At the end of the list, there were simply too many good Austin eats to try and not enough time or space in our stomachs to try them all so we focused more on sites. Unfortunately, all of the places were outdoors so our adventure was pushed back until Sunday. However, Sunday the sun was shining bright; our adventure day was finally here! We packed our camera, and sunglasses, and headed out the door for almost the entire day.

Some of the Austin places we explored included:

  • ‘Greetings from Austin’ on Annie St.
  • ‘I love you so much’ street art at Jo’s on S. Congress.
  • Downtown and the Capitol building.
  • Castle Hill (The Hope Gallery).
  • Lady Bird Lake and Lamar pedestrian bridge
  • East Austin Succulents

Narrowing the several hundred photos we shot down to our favorites took a little time, but we both had clear favorites. Once we decided on our the set the rest was easy through Artifact Uprising! Ordering our Square Print Set on the website was simple and quick. The prints are 5" squares with a small white border on semi-matte paper. We didn’t have to worry much about the color calibration of monitors, screens, or printers; the prints’ colors looks exactly as they do on our Macs and iPhone screens.

Our prints are now hung by DIY gold color block clips in our home; I smile each time I catch a glimpse of them. Thankfully, B is fantastic and spaced out the whole grid evenly, so it doesn’t drive us both crazy.

Going on these little adventure will always be one of my favorite things to do with B. I’m lucky to spend these days, in a spectacular city, with my best friend.
