Back in April (ha! April! That’s feels like decades past and yet, that’s how long this post has been sitting in my drafts folder) James and I traveled to Austin, Texas for one rocking Southern wedding (no really, the groom is a rockstar, the bride, a Southern Texas belle). We decided to give Airbnb a try for our lodgings, and picked out this adorable airstream situated on the property of a family with a flock of chickens, dogs and a potbelly pig named Fern.
It was like Cartwheel Farm gone Texas.
The decor was charming and fun, the animals a riot, the kids a delight, and the hosts truly incredible humans. They have a number of foster children in their care, along with two adopted daughters. They began hosting on Airbnb as a way to supplement their income and allow one of the moms to stay home with the children. They have hearts of angels, and such a warm, interesting, joyful environment in which to raise and nurture these children that might otherwise be left behind. We loved our stay. And would encourage you to consider this affordable yet inspiring spot if you’re visiting Austin. (More details here).
Thanks, Marcy and Meredith for such a memorable visit!
