It took one visit for Marin and her fiancé to fall in love with the City of Austin! They packed their bags and moved from Los Angeles, and haven't looked back. Always up for an adventure, you can find Marin wandering around Wimberley, sifting through consignment stores, and jumping into natural swimming holes. Her favorite activity partner to stroll South Congress with is her French bulldog, Teddy! (@thetexasteddy on Instagram).
If you see her around town, please come up and say hello!
