Happy Monday everyone!
I know, I know, I’ve been a little MIA and I apologize, but adjusting to adult life is not easy, not to mention the days that I had off from work over the last few weeks where I actually had time to go out and get nice photos for blogs, it was pouring rain and freezing cold. So it was a hard no.
Today, I’m so excited to share a post that I’ve been wanting to do since I moved here! A special look into the neighborhood I live in, the Bishop Arts District. When I signed on my apartment back in October, I only had an hour or so to do my tour of the building and fill out the paperwork, so I was just trusting the staff there who told me how adorable this area really was. It wasn’t until I officially moved in in January that I got to see it for myself. Just a short 5 minute walk up the street is a collection of the most adorable boutiques and restaurants. It doesn’t even feel like downtown Dallas is minutes away!
At least once a week, I love taking Isla for a walk up into town to grab a fresh bouquet of flowers from Dirt Floral, and to stop into my favorite boutiques like All Good Things and Oasis Plant Shop just to see what’s new. (Fun fact, I picked up the cutest little fern from Oasis a few weeks ago and it’s my first plant ever and it’s not dead yet! So clearly I’m doing good so far!)
When Jacob is visiting for the day, we also love to grab a bite to eat from Whitehall Exchange and sit out on the patio. It’s a good way to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, but also be in the middle of the lively town center. A few other restaurants I love going to are Stock & Barrel for brunch, as well as Lockhart BBQ for some authentic Texas BBQ!
I feel so blessed to be able to live in such an adorable little neighborhood. I truly don’t think this district gets the credit it deserves because it has so much to offer! It reminds me a lot of Eastown Grand Rapids, which was my favorite area to escape to when I was living in Michigan. So now, feeling homesick is a thing of the past because I’ve got a little piece that reminds me of home just steps from my door!
