I’m Belle, a Texas girl now living out a dream in a quaint, little Midwest town!
I grew up in South Texas, in a town that has an abundance of palm trees, tropical weather, mosquitos and where a few minutes drive will get you to the “island”. You’ll find the most delicious & authentic Mexican dishes & seafood anywhere.
I grew up in a big family of mostly girls. There was always lots of cooking and “doing” in my childhood and throughout. It set the perfect foundation for my love of everything homemade & handmade. And family!
When I’m not here posting on GCC, I’m spending time with them.
Any extra time finds me in the kitchen making something fabulous, entertaining guests at our B&B, or doing some cool woodworking project.
Keeping busy is my thing! As long as the power tools are charged up and there’s plenty of sweet tea, I can go on for hours!
GullyCreekCottage is where I share my story, and inspire through my creativity.
