Flashback! It's Sunday morning, 10:30 a.m. and I'm riding in the car with my family to Silsbee, Texas to visit my grandmother. As a child, I considered a 45-minute drive to be a road trip. Road trips are the best! We would sing and play car games like the ABC game the whole way… until we fell asleep, of course. How many times did I look at all of the city limits signs and use all those words to get ahead in the game? Too many to count! City limit signs are always a great indicator, of not only letters to win games, but the population growth of a city.
Over the past 10 years since I moved to Austin, I’ve continued to use City Limit signs for games and to rate the health of my city. Austin is in the top 15 for largest cities in the United States and one of the fastest growing. Our growth stems from start-ups, college grads, retirees and cost of living/high quality of life compared to other states. Just during my decade-long residency here, the population has grown by more than 100,000 residents according to the Census reports. I find it fascinating to watch how this city continues to be shaped and still work towards keeping its declaration of being the “Live Music Capital of the World”.
Ya know, if you're reading this right now, text me. Let's go to a show, no matter what day of the week it is… because we can! I'd love to catch up and indulge in the music scene of our city with you. Also, as this month’s Item of Value, I am giving you the chance to win a pair of 3-day weekend passes to the ACL Music Festival.
