Quick Trip: Wimberley

This past weekend we celebrated my husband’s birthday, so naturally, I already had a trip planned for him months in advance. In April, I was starting to get the itch to travel again, (meaning in my spare time, I was googling random places on AirBNB and looking at things to do in random towns) so…
