Fredericksburg, Texas: A Photo Journey

On our last full day in Texas, Almanzo and I wandered over to the quaint little town of Fredericksburg, where we caught up with friends, ate some ice cream and strolled the streets. I fell in love with the town’s old fashioned charm and cute antique stores on every corner!

Here’s our photo journey, from me to you.

    Necco Wafers! Bring back memories, don’t they? Always would be your choice when you were able to get a candy: There were so many little candies in it, you thought that you would never run out!

    When I searched for Praline Pecan Honey Butter, the ‘hit’ led me to believe there was a recipe for it, which is what I’m looking for to make Christmas Gifts. But the site only showed a picture of a jar. Does anyone know where I can get the recipe?Thanks. PS – We LUV to spend time in Fredericksburg! Been going for years and still haven’t seen everything. Hope you make it to the Chocolate Place on the main street.
