When life gets hectic I tend to go on mental "memory-cations" and think about my times away from the daily grind. One of my favorite places in the world is the little town of Fredericksburg,TX. It's a laid back German settlement that has turned into what I would call the B&B capital of Texas. The antiquing is a main draw too!
I've gone a few times for weekend getaways. Once with the hubs, and once with my Mom. Both fun in their own special ways. Obviously the trip with mom included lots more antiquing and cute cottagy-ness. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing the old farmhouse style cottage where we stayed. It was called the Lavender Cottage. I can't find it anymore online. I'm hoping it is only changing hands or getting an update, and not closed completely.
My favorite pitstop in Fredericksburg? Without a doubt a place called Homestead & Friends.
Wish I had pics to show you. Wish I had pics for myself...the inspiration is amazing! There will be a next time.
