For my mom’s birthday we decided on a Mother/Daughter girl trip. Rarely are the two of us alone together anymore. Usually it’s all the kids running crazy or she is babysitting while I am somewhere completely different.
We set our sites on two nights in Brenham, Texas. It was a close destination with tons of things we love to do. You might enjoy a get away there yourself!
We started the trip with a tour of the prominent historic homes in Brenham. I scheduled a tour for just the two of us through the Heritage Society of Washington County.
It was my favorite.
The beautiful burled wood, clawed feet and petticoat mirror.
All the way up to the most incredible attic you will ever step foot in, this house was a fun treat. Our personal tour guide was obviously in love with the rich history and intimate workings of all the old homes we visited. She was a wealth of knowledge.
From the unique front doors to the insightful inclusion of bathrooms, it is obvious no expense was spared in building this home in days of old.
Time and focus spent on the intricate workings make a difference. This fast paced, mass produced world we live in has lost some of it’s edge.
Whatever you call it, we loved it. The husband and wife team behind the Ant St. Inn were delightful. The breakfast was fresh and scrumptious. I ordered the same thing two days in a row. The next day was spent rounding the square. There are a ton of fun shops with a variety of items.
Every store we went to blew us away. There wasn’t a bad one in the bunch.
we had an amazing, relaxing, good time to catch up, birthday celebration for my mom. And she totally deserved it! My mom does so much for me and my family. It was nice to carve out this special time, just for the two of us.
Brenham was an entertaining little town, maybe you could treat someone you love to a getaway soon!
