|Congratulations, Dave and Stephanie|
Big news for the Journal Fodder Junkies, well, at for one of us. Dave got married!
I was very fortunate to be in Austin for the wedding this past weekend to share in this special day for my brother-from-another-mother and his beautiful bride. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate for Dave and Stephanie, but the rain didn't dampen the spirit of the day. They had their ceremony under the protection of the front porch, and everyone enjoyed a lovely reception/party afterward.
I wish Dave and Stephanie all the best in their journey. Here's to a lifetime of love, friendship, and joy!

While in Austin, my wife and I were able to check out a lot of the city, and one of our first stops was the Blue Cat Cafe
. This unique cafe has adoptable cats that live in and lounge around the place. There are many cat walks, cat beds, cat toys, and a massive cat tree, and the cats have the run of the place. Good food and cats - it made us miss our own animals a little less.

We also spent some time downtown and did a little shopping, but we were most excited to go to Voodoo Doughnuts. We first encountered these amazing doughnuts in Portland, Oregon this past spring at the original location, and we were very excited to see a location in Austin. We were able to stop by before our flight back to Northern Virginia, and we made sure to order extra to take with us on the flight.

It was a very nice weekend trip to Austin, and I am so excited to welcome Stephanie to the JFJ family.
