Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. I Heart Places is yet another travel blog. We’re going to be taking photos, shooting some video, and talking about the places we visit in the US and around the world.

But who are we? We are Joel and Jessica and we live in Austin, Texas.

Joel and Jessica at West Bay, England

Joel owns a digital agency working with colleges, universities, and municipalities. Jessica is a fashion designer working on her first menswear line. Between the two of us, we travel a bit. The problem is we haven’t really documented that travel for about 10 years. It’s time to start that up.

I Heart Places is starting out as a log of our trips; reviews of places we stay, things we eat, luggage we destroy (kidding); and hopefully things you can learn from as you plan your own travels.

If you happen to see that we’re in the same town, give us a shout on Twitter.
