h.a.k.a.s. is chalkboards’ love letter to Texas summers.
stepping outside and feeling like the sun is going to suffocate you.
holding a glass of iced tea to your face for a sweet condensation kiss.
big green pastures with cows lounging under shady pecan trees.
a gentle touch of night breeze shooing off the dry daytime air.
endless highway landscapes of barren western deserts.
eating a big bowl of ice cream on the back porch at sunset.
big bright warm nights with the whole moon and milky stars above.
no matter if you’re in Texas or not, hope you have a kickass summer.
