Took a quick day trip to Solvang to celebrate Julefest. Of course, when you’re in Solvang, you have to get Arne’s famous aebleskiver. We get ours a la mode 🍦😋. On the way home, we swung by Firestone Walker’s Barrelroom while the car was charging!


Had an incredible dinner (9 courses, plus wine pairings!) at Trois Mec! So cool to see Chef Ludo and his team in action!

Lia ordered a “Texas-sized” donut from DK’s Donuts to celebrate my birthday and recent move to Austin. Miu Mius included for scale.
