On Wednesday, December 28, Bryan and I packed our bags, said goodbye to the family, and drove west for a week of vacationing together. After a stop in Austin for a delicious lunch at Z Tejas, we drove on to Fredricksburg, TX, a beautiful German town in the heart of the Hill Country.
We stayed in a cabin at a beautiful little resort called Barron’s Creekside.
First thing we did was to stroll around the grounds.
I love this shadow picture of the two of us!
The cabins are made of timber from a tabacco barn and the windows and doors and some furnishings are from a home in Switzerland. The owner, Daniel, is Swiss and splits his time between here and there.
There’s my handsome sweetie.
And there’s me, feeling quite relaxed and happy.
Our cabin was named Wasserfall. What a wonderful place!
Our first morning there, Bryan brought me breakfast in bed and then we lazed around and read for half the day.
We enjoyed some delicious dining in Fredricksburg (the Navajo Grill was super yummy), but my favorite meal was the steaks and mushrooms and asparagus that Bryan made on the grill. We moved our table out to the porch to eat by white Christmas lights.
Ahh, and the fire in the fireplace! So cozy!
This was one of the best trips we’ve taken together. We visited Becker Vineyards (bought some port and lavender honey), went to Wild Seed Farms, drove past the very crowded Enchanted Rock State Park, and wandered up and down the adorable shopping street in Fredericksburg. I loved it here, and highly recommend both the location and also the solo vacationing sans kids!
