Enjoying Reserve at Lake Travis

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.

Blanco Lavender Festival June 12 to 14

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.

Congratulations Graduates

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.
