My husband and I live on a 55 acre ranch in Driftwood, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Both of us have Engineering degrees and had careers in Hi-tech industry. But left the corporate world to find a different life-style and to be around more for our two sons. After a year of travelling around the world with our two young boys in 2008-09, we decided to move to Austin area to buy some land and be close to nature and farming. We love to travel and share our piece of paradise with others.
