I’ve either been walking on the beach, dancing, hosting a rehearsal dinner, or recovering. Right now, I am recovering from surgery. A long story short: a MRSA infection several years ago […]

More from Lake Travis

Ah, the longer we stay on Lake Travis, the more I like it!  Lakeway is a wealthy, small town with all the amenities, easy to get around in, and deer are sighted on every drive in the neighborhood.  The only real issue is how low the lake is.  There are boathouses and stairs just sprawled […]
