Summer in the Texas Hill Country

Hello, lovely lotuses! Last week, I took the week off acting as tour guide showing around my brother in law who came to visit us from Puerto Rico. We went everywhere! We took them all around downtown, from the Alamo, to the Tower of Americas and the Riverwalk. We went tubing down the Comal, a brief dessert on the Lake in Austin and, of course, Fredericksburg. This quaint German town has completely stolen my heart and I take every chance I get to visit. Anytime a family member comes to visit, we take them and they fall in love, too. Only 1.5 hours away from San Antonio, this town in the Texas Hill Country is home to all of the best Texas wineries, including my all time favorite, Grape Creek Vineyards. Relaxing on the deck, sipping wine with soothing music playing in the background is my absolute favorite pastime. We took our guests on a Tuesday afternoon, with a picnic basket filled with delicious cheeses, french bread, charcuterie and spreads. It was lovely! Perfect Summer staycation in Texas!

Hola mis hermosas flores de loto! La semana pasada me tomé la semana de vacaciones y actuamos como guía turístico con mi cuñado quien nos vino a visitar de Puerto Rico. Fuimos a todas partes! Los llevamos por todo San Antonio desde el Alamo, hasta la Torre de las Américas y el Riverwalk. Flotamos por el Río Comal, comimos postre frente al lago en Austin, y no faltaba la visita a Fredericksburg. Este lindo pueblo Alemán se ha robado mi corazón y tomo cualquier oportunidad de ir a visitar. Cada vez que cualquier familiar nos viene a visitar, los llevamos y se enamoran también. A tan solo una hora y media de San Antonio, este pueblo en Texas es el hogar de los mejores viñedos en Texas, incluyendo  mi favorito, Grapecreek Vineyards. Pasar una tarde en la terraza con un vinito y música relajante es mi pasatiempo favorito. Llevamos a nuestros invitados un Martes por la tarde, con una canasta llena de quesos, jamones ibéricos, pan francés y más. Fue una delicia! Unas vacaciones perfectas en Texas!
