ATX Good Life

All my adventures around the capital city of Texas ❤︎

Florida Trip

About three or four times a year, I fly to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and visit my 90-year old grandfather. I stay on the couch at the senior living facility and eat down in the dining room with all of the elderly folk every night. I love it. It’s also a […]
