30 years old and over a thousand miles away, I still looked for you in the stands and your flash was there.
Thank you for being the best dad. I love you. ❤️ @rdt_pata
Last weekend I got to be a part of the Service Hustle for Homelessness, a service design event hosted by the @cityofaustintexas Innovation Team. We created Lockers on Wheels, a service providing short-term day storage in old school buses outfitted with lockers. I shared a bit about the experience in a @medium post today—link in my bio!

Kids + design thinking + muffins...
What could go wrong? 😉
(They asked “how might we create a muffin tin that is easier/faster to clean?” for their mom...and EVERYONE helped ❤️) __________________🖍👩🍳✨_________________

Revisiting projects and papers today that I might want to develop further...kinda fun on this side of graduation 😉

Love, Texas. #evanstonillinois
“... I think if you hold your breath you can hear the train all the way down to Contoocook. Hear it?”
Listening hard for the adventure and the whistle alerting what’s next on my last night in this corner of the world. So much here to be grateful for: closer relationships with family, new friends, new experiences... @piventheatreworkshop, you’re definitely on that list.

5 years ago, I paid off my last undergraduate student loan and swore I’d never do it again. Today, I stand corrected. 😏 I’m so glad I changed my mind—this program and the people I met have changed me for the better. Here’s to using that to change the world. ❤️ #masteredit (Also, my Dad—the camera flash—DROVE from Austin for this. That’s love.) ————————👩🎓————————

We talked last night about your changing relationship with Eva and your wonder (even if mixed with frustration) at the uniqueness of each of your kids. They’re blessed to have such an observant, intelligent, humorous, and giving mother. You amaze me, Sister! Happy Mother’s Day!
I remember building forts out of couch cushions with her, turning off all the lights and pretending we were in the woods while eating our “ants on a log” snack. Decades later, she’s still architecting adventures with a new generation. Here’s to my imaginative, playful, clever, and abundantly loving mother; I love you! Happy Mother’s Day!
