We got a call a week out that my college friend and her family were heading from Seattle to Austin and invited us to join the group. We quickly found a place to stay at a Airbnb in Dripping Springs and before we knew it we jumped on the road and headed south.
Wilber and his Friends on the Farm
We arrived on the farm in Dripping Springs close to 4pm and was greeted by Julie, the most friendly super host. She showed us to the Farm House Suite and then took us outside and introduced us to the farm animals. Wilber is the king of the farm and loves giant marshmallows. Our room was cozy and had lots of space. The bed was super comfy and I loved the way she decorated the entire room and house. It was a week before Christmas when we arrived so the house was decorated in a farm theme and I loved it.
Julie has 9 listings on her farm and was planning to add more. Such a fun experience that is truly peaceful and quiet. If you are looking for a place in hill country I highly recommend. Check out her Airbnb website HERE.
Crepes for Breakfast
I honestly don’t know what I would do without Yelp. I use it all the time. We had a couple hours to ourselves and we were on a mission to find the best breakfast. Crepe Crazy had glowing reviews and we’ve never met a crepe we haven’t liked. They were maybe 5 minutes from the farm so it was perfect.
We walked into the smallest restaurant I think I have ever been in and made our way to the counter. After about 5 minutes of our interaction with the staff we realized they were all deaf. I loved it. They were so friendly and it was a very pleasant experience. We ordered two different crepes, the Mediterranean Medley and Sweet Cheese Delight. Hands down these crepes are the best I have had.
Murals in the City and the State Capital
I have always wanted to find the “I Love you so Much” mural and thanks to waze we found it. I didn’t realize there are quite a few places in the city for a good photo op. We drove around and captured a couple icon shots. The Capital building was open for tours and it was absolutely beautiful inside.
The group headed to Lazarus Brewing and we enjoyed their homemade tamales and a cup of stout. Jim’s last name happens to be Lazarus so it was fitting to end the day’s events here. They have a great outside patio with lots of space.
