I had the good fortune of spending another week in Marfa last week. If you haven’t been, I suggest you get. there. fast. But – I would wait until this Texas cold-spell passes us by so you can really enjoy the wide open spaces, small town feel and abundance of art.
If you do get there – here is my short list of must-dos:
*Eat falafal at Food Shark.
*Shop for unique finds at JM Drygoods.
*Eat date pudding at Cochineal and Cuatro Leches at Blue Javelina. Argue over which is better. Eat them again to decide.
*Visit Wool & Hoop and learn about crewel embroidery.
*Take pictures of the beautiful clouds and clear, blue sky.
*Try to get in a run to make room for more good eats.
*Order white pizza from Pizza Foundation. Beware – the slices are HUGE and addictive.
*View the Marfa lights + amazing stars at the viewing center.
Get moving people!

Well, I can cross one town off my list! I finally made the loooong journey to Marfa and enjoyed experiencing life in a small town again. Friendly folks, beautiful scenery – the clearest night sky I’ve seen in years. It was lovely and relaxing. A few of my faves:
Food Shark. An amazing food experience too cool to miss. A food truck, a converted bus as a dining car plus the most amazing food in town. Marfalafel. Pork Tenderloin Salad. Peanut Butter cookies. yummmmm.
Wool & Hoop. A cuter than cute craft shop dedicated to crewelwork and other types of embroidery. Run by the ever-so-gracious Katherine Shaughnessy who wrote this lovely book full of easy to follow how-to’s and inspiring, modern patterns. I am slowly becoming obsessed. The texture and rich colors are definitely swoon-worthy.
A building, land, sunset and agave.
That’s a quick tour of my Marfa faves. Stop by and say howdy yourself sometime.
