All the adventure, luxury, and rejuvenation of a weekend getaway all wrapped into one afternoon. We ventured with One Small Blonde, So Heather, Street Style Squad, Tanya Foster, and The Middle Page out to Tyler, Texas, to visit The Grove Kitchen and Gardens. 

It was a little bit of a trek, but pulling up to the farmhouse-style restaurant nestled int the trees satisfied the feeling of being away from it all. Fresh air, and the aromas of southern cooking blended together. 

We were seated outside at long table and served family-style, enjoying each dish highlighting local flavor, without a detail overlooked.

We have a long list of places to visit in Texas, let alone all over the country, nay the world, but the thought of getting back to The Grove with a group of girlfriends, even for a very extended brunch that leads to happy hour that leads to relaxing listening to live music and enjoying some shared barbecue. Yea, we are all consulting our calendars for the next free moment we can escape to the Grove.
