Boredom had officially set in this past Sunday and I needed to get out of the apartment-FAST. It was rainy and I wanted to be out celebrating that my face was no longer going to be melting when I stepped outside. Gene suggested we go explore Historic Downtown Grapevine since he’s over there for work all the time and as usual with his suggestions, it didn’t disappoint. It just feels like you are taking a step back in time and it’s so…slow, but in the best way. Grapevine is just overflowing with history and culture. We loved it! There are some shops and things that we missed since it was a Sunday so we will definitely be going back just to see the glassblowing at Vetro Glassblowing.
Gene gets to pick date night on Friday nights and I must say-he picks well! An area of Dallas that we had been wanting to explore was Deep Ellum. One thing that I just love about Dallas is that you can drive 10 minutes and the feel, culture and energy of the city can totally change. Just to give you some background on Deep Ellum, it’s been around for awhile-the late 1800s to be exact. It was a big contributor to industrial development in Dallas seeing as how Henry Ford had one of his first automobile plants here. But what it’s most known for is it’s contribution to the jazz music scene. You can read more about Deep Ellum’s history here.
