The Drunk Chicks Visit Nate’s Barn…
I was in need of some girlfriend time…have you ever felt the need to be around a lot of hormonal women? Smile…They can understand you like no other. We planned this girlfriend trip and it didn’t disappoint.
We escaped to the heart of Texas and had time to unwind in this 1840’s barn lovingly restored with modern comforts and luxury country amenities. We enjoyed the run of 27 acres of wildlife habitat, and I marveled at the catch-and-release fishing from the pond right outside the back door, quiet nights around the gas fire pit, and easy access to the town of Round Top. Oh, the shopping we did…but more on that in the next post.
Staying at Nathanael Barn was such a delight. How many women can say they spent the night in a barn with luxury? I guess I can cross this off on my bucket list!
Nate’s Barn is named for Nathanael Greene, the second-greatest general of the Revolutionary Way (after George Washington, of course). Before moving to its current, warmer locale, Nathanael Barn lived for 170 years in Greenville, a town located in Greene County, New York (in the Hudson River Valley). Both Greenville and Greene County are named after General Nathanael Greene, so we have chosen to do the same for our barn to keep alive the memory of this great American patriot.
Let me introduce to you…”The Drunk Chicks!” Is this name hilarious or what? They are mortified that this is their name now by the way….Smile. Jane does like to have fun.
We went shopping in Round Top after getting settled into Nate’s Barn. We came upon a darling boutique store that carried these adorable T-Shirts with 4 baby yellow chicks on them, labeled “The Drunk Chicks!” I just squealed!!! I said, this is the four of us! We will forever now be The Drunk Chicks. Now let me clarify something, we have never been drunk in the presence of each other, BUT the Mama’s do love their vino.
Can’t you just picture yourself around this quaint fire pit in the fall evening? The smore’s are calling your name. Be still my heart.
After I came home and showed Tarzan these images, he looked at me and said, “Book the barn for you and I in the fall!”
It is so good to get away from the normal everyday life isn’t it?
