summer in houston is a bitch. most days are in the triple digits. we had the fortune of getting some high 80° - low 90° weather last weekend, which may still be hot for some of you, but it feels like a cold front to me! since these days are far and few between, i decided on a mini road trip to our closest island, galveston. the word island is used very loosely here. the sand isn't white and the water is definitely not blue, but i'll happily dive in when it feels this good outside! the place was packed as it seemed everyone had the same idea i did, but my dog, noodles, and i didn't mind at all.
