I love the Texas Hill Country.
This past week I got another chance to visit my aunt and uncle down there. This time the review I did was right in their area which was fabulous – I got to stay with them the entire time. I flew down on Saturday, so I also had some weekend/fun time with them. It is so rugged and yet peaceful out there. Hotter than blazes and I am hoping for rain for them (the area is at stage 2 drought conditions), but not humid and the evenings and mornings were very nice.
My dad still owns a lot down there…and I wouldn’t mind living there someday. Maybe.
Also, in even more exciting news, this week: my sister had her baby! This is baby number two – my niece was born on Thursday. Happy and healthy. I can’t wait to go home at the end of the month to meet her and see the rest of the family. She is quite adorable already!
In less happy news, I am so, so incredibly sad to hear that my friends’ dog was diagnosed with cancer this past week. I am hoping they get some good news about treatment options for him. My heart goes out to them all – I know I would be absolutely devastated if it were one of my own.
And last but not least – TGIF. It has been a long week. I am glad it is Friday and that the work-stuff is almost done for a few days.
