The River House
My sister’s in-laws own a beautiful piece of land along the San Marcos River. Over the past few years, they worked to create a gorgeous retreat there, and last weekend, we were fortunate to visit for the first time. I’ll admit that I was nervous to visit, only because I am not what you’d call “outdoorsy,” unlike the rest of my family. While everyone else is thrilled to spend the day kayaking and exploring the river, I’m most comfortable indoors.
Little did I know, I was in for a treat as soon as we approached the house. My sister’s mother-in-law is an expert thrifter and garage sale shopper, and her weekend home is filled with well-loved pieces that reflect both her talent for decorating and the beauty of the area. I ventured down to the river exactly once, and then spent the rest of the day admiring the lovely house. It was just my cup of tea, and I selected a few pictures (from the hundreds we took) to share with you, with the permission of my sister’s family.
This is truly country living at its finest, and I was thrilled to spend the day there! The family is hoping to create a website soon in preparation to rent the home for weekends and vacations, and I want to add my name to that list. I’ll be sure to share the site with you when it is available.
