Sometimes you've just got to get away.
I packed my family up last weekend and we did just that with a quick getaway to
in Round Top, Texas.
Paige and Smoot Hull, owners of
, were recently featured in
and I was honored to assist on that shoot. But what a treat to experience this cottage in a more personal way; to relax into the quiet countryside and enjoy this beautifully renovated vacation home that provided every single thing we needed for the weekend.
Even though I was there to just r e l a x, I couldn't resist photographing some of my favorite details of the cottage to share with you.
I miss you
That daybed and I are new BFF's. While my guys watched sports I was lounging there ...ignoring them :) It's the perfect spot to crash after a day of sightseeing around Round Top and La Grange.
Of course, Round Top is the place to be during the excitement of Antiques Week, but if you haven't experienced the area away from the shows you're missing out. The shows are wonderful, but there's no way to take in the charm of the area because of the crowds and traffic.
Driving down country roads at your own pace, taking in the sunsets, eating ice cream and pie and pulling over to talk to cows .... that's what we do.
website offers a nice list of events to help plan your trip. There are often festivals, art shows and markets on the weekend so be sure to check.
I just heard that the cottage is available for the upcoming Mother's Day Weekend! For reservations at The Vintage Round Top, click
