In January, Andra and I traveled to Dallas, Texas for a “working vacation” on behalf of With Grace and Gold. Neither of us had been to Dallas before, so we were really excited to work on our business and explore a new place together!
We stayed at the Adolphus — which was a really beautiful, historic hotel located in Downtown Dallas. While in Dallas, we learned that, while people often work in Downtown Dallas, they often live in the communities beyond Downtown Dallas. Nonetheless, it was so much fun for us to walk around the city, explore different shops and restaurants, and get to know a new city together!
Our working vacation, from beginning to end, was all about preparing for the launch of our Template Collection at With Grace and Gold. We wanted to work side by side to design each Template and to develop a strategy for our “launch day.” In between, though, we made sure to enjoy Dallas!
We visited the Dallas Farmers Market — which was a really awesome marketplace. There were shops and restaurants, and there was so much to see! We also explored Uptown, had manicures, and devoured guacamole — our favorite — at practically every restaurant we visited. Uptown was really walkable, especially compared to Downtown. The weather was perfect — 80 degrees in January, yes please!
On our last day in Dallas, we sat on the rooftop of the Adolphus, where there was a beautiful pool:
I’m so happy we were able to kick off the new year in such a beautiful, warm city! I really recommend visiting Dallas — both for the beautiful weather and for the delicious food!1
