I am a mother of two little girls that loves to experience the simplicity that travel brings to our family. We love taking our girls to new places, seeing new things, trying fresh foods, tasting local wines or brews and reconnecting with quality time. My favorite place to visit with my husband is Carmel, California, but we love to visit Hyatt Lost Pines and Wild Oak Ranch here in Texas with our girls. I love yoga, spas, nature walks and smore's around a fire. We hope to bring more of these things to Gathering Oaks Retreat as we grow our vision into a true destination to visit in Central Texas. Blessed is the Life that finds Joy in the Journey!
