Holiday season is crazy, is it not? This year, before we got lost in football season, busy work schedules, holiday dinners and family gatherings my sister and I decided to have a little girls' retreat down in the Hill Country. We met up in Fredericksburg, the quaintest little town, where we dined at some great new spots, wandered through art galleries and did a little "Enchanted" hiking.
If you are planning to visit any time soon, you must, I repeat MUST, visit Otto's. They have done a remarkable job crafting a creative German Bistro fare, and the atmosphere is quite charming. Don't leave without having the Cambozola Cheesecake.
We also stumbled upon a fantastic gallery, The Good Art Company, that is bringing a fresh look to the Fredericksburg art scene. They had some colorful modern pieces, mixed with several impressionistic artists. We loved this hot pink sculpture out on the front porch!
Our favorite place was Vaudeville, a curated shop/gallery/bistro/coffee bar filled with unique items for the home or gifts. We loaded up here on the best coffee in town at least once a day (if not more!)
Root was a well-curated boutique that carried some great brands like Ella Moss and Alice & Trixie. We picked up some inspiration for new jewels that you'll see this fall and holiday season!
And just in case you thought this trip was getting too girly, we hiked to the top of Enchanted Rock early Sunday morning to get this fantastic view.
Even though each of us had been to Fredericksburg many times before, we enjoyed exploring new places and spending time together. We even did a mini-photoshoot for #StyleMeSeptember, an everyday outfit challenge put on by Hilary Rushford. Stay tuned for a look at a few of those images soon, and why I love what Hilary does.
Until then, stop by on Facebook or Instagram and say hello!
