I just got back from a week-long trip with my mom and sister to the Texas Hill Country for a little R&R. This was the longest uninterrupted time I’ve spent with my mom and sis since moving away from home 10 years ago. We talked, shopped, ate, laughed, slept-in and enjoyed every minute!
I went a little paparazzi with my new camera, so I have lots of photos to share. So you can enjoy the post in just one cup of coffee, or cocktail of your choice, I will keep the words brief. 😉
From Houston, we headed west on 290 and first stopped at Chappell Hill, where a Bluebonnet Festival was happening.
After spending a little time at the festival, we went on further west to True Blue Home, Leftovers Antiques and then Round Top.
Later that evening, we settled in to our apartment (attached to a pretty house) in Fredericksburg.
Over the next few days we explored historic downtown Fredericksburg and the surrounding area.
We surprised mom with an early Mother’s Day gift – a hand & foot massage at the Hoffman Haus Spa. Their grounds were so pretty.
Dinner at Rathskeller (Rat House!) was delish! We had the German sampler platter.
More pics from around town….
Luckenbach did not disappoint. It was so laid back and chill…
Hiking to the top of Enchanted Rock was a workout! But the view from the top was worth it.
Another morning was spent shopping at Carol Hicks Bolton Antiques.
We also hit a few thrift stores – another favorite pastime of ours.
After Fredericksburg, our next destination was Austin. On the way there we stopped at Saucer-Beckmann Living History Farm and Jacob’s Well.
In Austin, we stayed in the annex of William Green Hill House and took full advantage of the breezy front porch.
We walked, shopped and ate our way thru Austin over the last few days of the trip.
Final stop was Gourdough’s for some unusual and yummy donuts.
Whew – sorry for the lengthy post. Believe it or not, these are only half the photos I took. 🙂
Until next time,
Thanks for the mini vacation! XXOO
