Back from my celebration at the Gruene Mansion!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes.LOML (love of my life) took me to one of my favorite places.. Gruene. We always stay at the Gruene Mansion!
Upon arrival to the room, there was this beautiful chocolate cake LOML had arranged for.

This is the view from The Hayloft room overlooking the property.

The walk way to the loft..

The river was low but still so beautiful...

I did shop a few vintage stores downtown Gruene... Enjoy your shopping!

and this little shop - Simply Detailed! Very fun, funky and very Mackenzie-Childs friendly!

and then .. the departing breakfast from The Gruene Mansion is always the best! Thank to Chef Connie!
I hope you enjoyed the little trip as much as I did! Have a great day!
