Can You Guess Where I have Been?

 

 

 

I feel soooo spoiled!

I have just returned from another trip!

Where else does one have an elegant deer skin leather rocker?

Or the head of a cow high up on top of a vaulted fireplace?

Each peaceful morning

and hot breezy evening was spent rocking looking out at this view.

We watched hawks and buzzards gracefully gliding through the air with the winds carrying their every move.

It seemed like a little piece of Heaven

The shops were loaded with this sort of footwear

(I want those red ones)

Have you guessed by now?

My daughter and I went to a little town near Fredericksburg, Texas.

We surprised one of my very best friends for her 60th birthday.

We reenacted this picture later, but Jamie and I did ride up in this farmhand “Mule” screaming

“Happy Birthday Glenda!”

This is Emily on the left and my daughter Jamie on the right.

We four have been Bestest Friends since the girls were Three.

Glenda and I were 34 and 35.  We met during an Air Force move.  Glenda and Emily came over to welcome us to the neighborhood.  Oh, the memories we have made together in all the years since those California days!

Emily created a beautiful spread of finger foods to go along with a vegetable pizza and…

 

Mojitos!

The house we stayed in is actually a client’s home of Emily.  She and her husband and little boy are living in a gorgeous home overlooking Hill Country, Texas.

What fun to be able to spend four days and nights in what felt like a five star resort.

Good Friends

Good Memories

Good Summer 2011
