Visiting The Garden Co…
It came to my recollection, that I didn’t share our time in Schulenburg, Tx.
We found this ADORABLE cafe on our way home from San Antonio.
It is called, The Garden Co. Marketplace & Cafe. What a gem!
Bu, it is so much more than just a cafe!
There is a beautiful Shop, Outdoor Biergarten, and a Silo all in the back!
Look at the indoors!! I mean does it get any more quaint than this?!
All I could think of, “Wouldn’t Joanna Gains from Fixer Upper, just LOVE this?!” Smile…
What creative imagination went into designing these lights.
The Garden Cafe is a gem! Don’t miss this, put it on your Texas bucket list.
I want to thank you all for the outpouring of love and support for these last few weeks.
It was rough, and I am glad, most of it is over.
As for my good friend, she is now with her maker for eternity. She will be missed!
Funerals are hard…Hard to say goodbye…Hard to let go…Hard to accept.
But, one thing I do know…this friend was VERY strong and would want us to move on.
What a precious privilege it is to be alive!
I leave you with this…
“You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive.
Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive…to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love.
Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty We must keep putting one foot in front of the
other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend!”
Thank you for being here…till next time.
What a wonderful find – I love those hidden treasures – such a wonderful unexpected adventure!
Hi Laurie, I’m replying your travel questions here since my response is kinds long. Feel free to delete after you read it.
Banff Rockies had been on my list.So much to see there. You can book with the local tour guide to see places without driving yourself.
Grand Canyon is great… the Antelope is not far from GC.
Beach: Hawaii, San Diego, and Tampa Bay are beautiful!
Cities: Seattle, Portland, and Toronto (Canada) are my favorite cities.
My husband books hotel online. He does all the research and compares prices. Normally, he likes to pick 4 stars hotels.
Hope I have answered your questions. 🙂
yes, thank you so much. We were thinking about Portland and I loved that you confirmed you liked it too. We have seen the other two cities. Could you tell me your favorite sites, stores, eats etc? thanks so much
Sites: We took the local tour to see the waterfalls, and other places. I can’t remember the name of the tour service, but found on the Internet. They pick tourists at couple hotel site in DT. We also visited the Japanese Gardens (truly beautiful) and Chinese Garden in DT (small but beautiful.
Eats: The Portland City Grill (oversee the river) serves great food. The Mandarin Cove (if you like Chinese food) by the river is really good. Both were recommended by the couple from Minn that we took the day-long local tour with.
Also, we took the advantage of their wonderful city train.
I was just thinking to re-visit this beautiful city. 🙂
Happy travel, Laurie!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INFO.

best regards, Jürgen
A beautiful post of love and happy photos 🙂
Wow, you pictures makes this place so inviting…may need to take a trip out there!
I’m sorry for your loss.
As for that cafe, it is adorable!
That does look like such great fun, and I’m also thinking Joanna would love this.
Oh, what a charming café! Lovely shots too.
So sorry about your loss, Laurie. “we will never know what is waiting for us…” so true. Thank you for the beautiful words and photos.
Thank you for your encouraging words amy!
Hi Laurie! The Garden is a magical little place. I love it! I won’t miss it when I go to Texas. 😉
I’m glad you’re feeling a little better and able to move on. I know it is very difficult to lose a dear friend. Peace.
Vashti, always a delight to hear from you!
Thank you! 😀 xx
It is sad to lose a dear friend – I am sorry about your loss, Laurie. We are also losing a very good friend of ours. Cancer is a dreadful disease, taking him away from us. Your reminder of how happy we should be, being still alive, is good. Live as full as we can every day.
A lovely spot you have found here – I would love to have a cup.
Thank you for your kind words…I am sorry you are having to go thru this too…sigh.
Oh I am sorry to hear of your loss, I have yet to loose a good friend but I know when that time comes, it will be a difficult time. Thank you for sharing those wonderful words. And what a great place to stop and enjoy that beauty!!
Your words meant a lot to me Deanna!
I agree it is a total gem!
I’m so sorry about your friend, Laurie.
Delightful! Yes, Joanna would love it, heck she probably designed it 🙂
I want to visit! Bright spot in the midst of heavy hearts. Sorry for your loss.
Wow, what a neat find. Fantastic captures, I’d be in there for hours;)
A gem indeed. That place looks so cool!
A lovely place! I am sorry to hear about your loss.
Love, love the coop and all the rest too. I most likely will never make it to Texas so I have enjoyed the many travels through your photography. Thank you and giving you a virtual ~blessings hug~. Sorry for the loss of your friend.
Una Serie Llena De Colorido, Muy Buena, … Saludos.
The interior design is is incredible, thanks for spreading the word!
Thank you, Laurie, for the blessings and the reminder of the privilege it is to be alive.
Looks like a wonderful place to visit, too. And I was away so missed the sad news of the loss of your dear friend. Sending sympathy to you as you miss her.
Great quote on the bottom. I love that Fixer Upper show, and Flip or Flop too. I like visiting places like this, they make you feel different in a good way when there.
So good to hear from you, Laurie! I’m glad to hear that you can still smile and try to move on. You have two little sweethearts to make it all worthwhile. 🙂 And yes- what an inviting space that is! Save me a stool 🙂
What a gorgeous space!!
