Austin is #1, yet again!

This makes me feel better as Im vacationing in my hometown of San Diego wondering; "why did we leave?" The temperate 70 degree weather here tends to cloud my memory.

I love Austin, my adopted hometown; I always say if you can get through the heat in Austin through July and August then its the best place ever!
