Yep, it’s an old photo. We actually look younger and skinnier than this!

What is it like to own a bed and breakfast in a rural community in the Texas Hill Country?

Blogger, Belinda Smith shares her shopping experiences for home decor, gardening, and best places to find vintage, re-purposed and resale items in the Wimberley Valley area, a “little piece of heaven” not far from Austin (45-minutes) and San Antonio, Texas( 1-hour).

Belinda is into gardening, crafting, scrapbooking, DIY projects, and more recently, chicken ranching. Steve is actually the on-site chicken whisperer. If you’ve never held a chicken, we’re happy to introduce you to Lucy and Ethyl and their feathered friends!

Belinda and husband, Steve own and operate BellaVida Bed and Breakfast & Retreat Center, a unique country inn to experience all this great community has to offer! It is located minutes from the infamous shopping Square in Wimberley, Texas on 8+ acres of beautiful Texas Hill Country. Wimberley  is designated as a Dark Sky Community and a Texas Cultural Art District.
