Up a Treehouse with Chef Laurel Waters

This week on Lifestyle Thursday we have uncovered a real hidden gem of a restaurant in a small town in Texas and the story of its owner that’s equally as impressive.

If you drive up Highway 187 in the small town of Utopia, Texas, you may think that you’ve crossed over into the French Countryside, passing fields of poppy’s that line the winding pebbled driveway up to the European inspired manor that houses the amazing Laurel Tree Restaurant.

Oh, and there is a treehouse dining room that seats six in the backyard. And, they’re only open on Saturdays, leading to the restaurant being booked months in advance.

On This Podcast Episode:

All of this wonderment was dreamt up and is run by Paris-trained chef Laurel Waters. We chat with her about how she’s created a must-visit destination in a super small town, along with how she showcases her serious culinary chops in the heart of Texas Hill River Country.

It’s a story about following your dreams and being committed to your vision – daring to be uniquely you.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Finding Happiness Around The World

No matter where you live, studies show that people want to live a purpose-driven life. We love to laugh, we love to love people and we love to feel like we are healthy. Money is great but at the end of the day, it’s not always what makes you happy.

It takes more than money to make you happy, I promise.

 

On This Podcast Episode:

This week Jeff and I are exploring some of the happiest places around the world to live…well, a happy life.

Come along for our happy ride as we explore social services in Denmark, the “pura vida” life in Costa Rica and discover which part of Colorado that produces more Olympic athletes than any other U.S. city.

Octoberfesting Around the World

A few listeners sent us some Octoberfest questions, so we decided to do an Octoberfest themed episode. Since we recently featured Munich on a Travel Tuesday episode, we thought we’d tie these two together.

Usually, Octoberfest can last from the beginning of September through the first weekend of October, where you drink a lot of beer, maybe do some German folk-dancing in lederhosen, watch some wiener dog races and eat a lot of meat in tube form.

On This Podcast Episode:

Here are some cool fun-facts and highlights from some of the bigger Octoberfest’s around the country, as well as the lowdown on Munich itself.

Getting To Know Elvis’s Memphis

On a recent Travel Tuesday episode, we took you on a tour around Memphis, more than just Elvis and barbeque. This week we are back in Memphis to showcase two new additions to the Elvis empire and also explore the many other sides of music that Memphis has to offer.

Last fall the Guest House at Graceland opened their doors, making this the first diamond resort to open in Memphis in more than a hundred years. This 450-luxury room resort hotel is stunningly designed, with a lot of cool features that we’ll check out.

On This Podcast Episode:

Earlier this year, Elvis’ Graceland got a much-needed $45 million-dollar facelift when they debuted Elvis’ Memphis Complex, which is now part of the already popular tour. This 200,000 square-foot mega complex houses more memorabilia of the King of Rock n’ Roll than before the remodel and includes new shops, restaurants and an airplane hangar-sized movie theater that shows Elvis movies all day long.

If you are a music lover, you will love getting lost in the history and present-day offerings that are scattered all around Memphis… the real “Music City!”
