Visiting The Garden Co…


Hello Friends!

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 weย hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend!”

Thank you for being here…till next time.

  1. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 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. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Happy travel, Laurie!

  2. Hi Laurie! The Garden is a magical little place. I love it! I won’t miss it when I go to Texas. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes- what an inviting space that is! Save me a stool ๐Ÿ™‚
