My family spent the afternoon this past Sunday at the Reserve at Lake Travis. This community is located in Spicewood, has an Equestrian, condos, multi million dollar homes, cottages for rent and most of all a lazy pool, infinity pool, slide and swim up bar. The lake views are phenomenal and it was so relaxing. Membership is required to use the facilities or a member can invite you as their guest. We had so much fun! Check it out.
They are also hosting a Luxury Home Tour on June 13 to 14 and June 20 to 21st. This is your chance to visit this spectacular community.
Next week is one of my favorite times of the year, the Blanco Lavender Festival. Its starts on Friday but Saturday is the best day as downtown Blanco has the mini markets open with lots of food vendors and lavender product vendors. Imagine Lavender and Hill Country Lavender are 2 of the participating farms. I went today to see the lavender in full bloom. The abundance of rain has contributed to this acres of beautiful scenery on hwy 281 in Blanco. This is only a short drive from Austin. Come and see it.
As High School students and College Students graduate in Austin and around the country, I want to commend these graduates for a job well done. Same goes to the parents, congratulations in accomplishing such a milestone, another child completing their education.
Graduation is such an emotional ceremony, hence, I just love attending them. Kinda like weddings. I will probably be that weirdo after my kiddos have flown from the coop, the one sitting in the back watching strangers say "I do" or getting their diplomas. Why not? If you feel bad, invite me then.
Congratulations once again. And Good luck to our future leaders, inventors, teachers, doctors etc etc.
Memorial Day for Austinites was rainy, windy, scarry and gloomy. It all started on Saturday around 6pm when the rain came. The problem was it just kept coming. Then came the wind. We received two close calls, 2 tornado watches. Our phones and tv screens beeped and our power shut down. I bolted into the closet under the stairs with the dog until the wind died down.
My son on his way back to San Antonio got stuck in between two quickly rising low water crossings by Blanco River. He had to wait it out for 4 hours. Wimberley was severely flooded leaving people homeless and families unfound.
Sunday gave us a break but the rain was on and off. Monday was another repeat with another 2 tornado warnings with a real close call of a funnell cloud above us. A few tornadoes touched down all around Austin but not in Austin. Finally, our Lake Travis has increased 30 ft in the past 30 days, hurray but the damages and loss of lives are huge. It is day 2 and the City is still recovering and still getting more rain. June is going to be another wet month they say. Can we sustain more damages?
I know we need the rain but not all at once please.
