Saint Cecilia

New Years day we drove over to Austin, to claim our much anticipated Christmas present, a night's stay at the hotel St. Cecilia. After checking-in, selecting our vinyl, and touring our two rooms, we decided to meet back on the patio. I knew that it was the beginning of a great friendship when the bartender, Garret, surprised me with a purple and gold potion {well the potion was purple and the glass was gold}. My adult beverage was Garret's version of an Aviation, my favorite, which features violet liquor, which contributes the color, with a splash of champagne, perfect for celebrating the new year! We spent the entire evening on the grounds of the beautiful hotel imbibing on the patio with the unofficial dog park under the live oaks and as the temperature dropped moved indoors to sip by the fire. The next morning we were good to go with a bloody mary bar and a stroll down South Congress.

It truly was a weekend of inspiration, and renewal. What a wonderful start to the new year and a new tradition!
