I'm dreaming of a Gruene Christmas

My husband, daughter, and I are currently living in Temple, TX.  While in Connecticut for three months we made the most of seeing New England, so we plan to do the same here in Central Texas!  Though we've been to most towns around here we want to let our daughter experience some fine Texas livin'.  We love Texas and plan to come back to settle down once our traveling adventures are over.  One of our favorite places in Texas is Gruene. Gruene is a quaint little historic town located right along the Guadalupe River.  Below are a few pictures of our day in Gruene. I hope you enjoy!

The famous Gruene Hall (a dance hall where Willie Nelson, George Strait, & Jerry Jeff Walker have all played...Willie was playing the day we were there) is located next to the Gristmill
