Just to be clear, my recent vacation to Texas Hill Country was exquisite. The wildflowers were everywhere! I loved it. I loved the drive, the scenery, the hiking, the disk golf, the antiquing — all of it.
I loved the company — my boyfriend has a great sense of humor, an amazing sense of adventure, and an infinite amount of patience with me (and my panic disorder).
I loved my week off. I love Texas Hill Country. Go there if you can. Texas is not the flat, boring, wasteland people think it is. Texas Hill Country is gorgeous. I took dozens of pictures to prove it; alas, my iPhone went for a swim and many of the photos are lost.
TL;DR: Texas rocks.
