Do you hear that? It’s “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” release day, the newest album from Taylor Swift.

Whether you’re celebrating the artist’s iconic hits like “Mean” or “Mine” with a listening party or camping out at your local record store for that orchid marble vinyl — we went ahead and paired up San Antonio locations, and their matching “Speak Now” songs (and gave them a purple makeover, in true Taylor fashion).

This pretty pink reminds us of the Taylor Swift song“Speak Now.” We sometimes get lost in a daydream about this brunch spot. The crafted cocktails, meals, and good company make for a wonderful time — maybe someone has confessed their love at this old church-turned eatery...

“Sparks Fly” are definitely around when we’re soaking up the sun at this splash pad and food spot. It’s especially a great time when surrounded by friends on Wednesdays at the Sunset Sessions by Sound Cream.
