I want to capture memories for you, so that you may feel the same joy I feel when doing so for my family. The real moments. Not just the posed pictures of a beautiful family, but the essence of your family. To capture a moment, a real, genuine time in your life, doing what you love, with the people you adore, and where you can be YOU.

Haute New Opening: Ghost Hill Restaurant at Treaty Oak Distilling

Tucked away from the noise of the city, Treaty Oak Brewing and Distilling sits on twenty-eight hill country acres with giant live oaks and longdistance views. Join us for a Texas-centric food and beverage experience with family friendly entertainment. There’s a little something for everyone – a tasting room, artisanal cocktails on tap, yard games, kids’ play area, live music, and tours every weekend. Our new Ghost Hill Restaurant houses a full bar and kitchen serving wood fired meats and shareable snacks to enjoy inside or under the oaks. Take a tour of our facility – learn how our distillery was

the first in Texas to craft a spirit from grain, all while using ingredients sourced exclusively from Texas farms. From private parties to corporate events, our ranch and surrounding property can be transformed to fit any occasion. We can accommodate any party size and offer a range of pricing packages for rehearsal dinners, corporate events, fundraisers, birthday parties and more. Whether you just want a few tables reserved for your friends and family, or a full private dinner service in our distillery, we have you covered.

Follow us on Facebook & Instagram and visit our website to keep up with the live music, educational classes, featured public events and exclusive dinner pairings offered throughout the year. OPEN WEEKENDS

Dr. Brad Dobson

service we offer is a non-dilated eye exam where we utilize Optomap Retinal Imaging to replace the dilation at routine visits, making the exam experience much more enjoyable. All of our instruments are the latest technology for making children’s exams simpler and all of those technologies make adult exams even easier.

Dr. Dobson, tell us about your Bee Cave office and 2nd location now

I’ve been practicing in the area for over 15 years now. Our passion is combining state of the art equipment in eyecare and a selection of eyewear that is unique and personalized to the individual. My first practice in Bee Cave combines patient friendly techniques for examination as well as a convenient optical to serve that community. The patient base has expanded to Dripping Springs and surrounding areas and my new location will now be even more convenient for those that live nearby.

Which brands do you carry for eyeglass frames and prescription sunglasses?

We feature unique brands that are exclusive to our area including Tom Ford, Salt, and Komono. We also love the classics from lines like RayBan, Costa and Silhoutte. We want our patients to have the most advanced lens technologies with an eye exam that is easy on them. We also believe selecting eyewear should be a fun and unique experience.

What services do you offer for both children and adults?

We provide eyecare for both children and adults. Those services range from routine check ups and care of eye infections and injuries all the way to complex contact lens fits and LASIK treatments. A unique

Melissa Miller


The CoolSculpting® procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely without surgery or downtime*. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat. Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. We will develop a customized CoolSculpting® treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. Call us at 512-923-1071 for your complimentary consultation. OUR SERVICES

Melissa is THE person to see for Coolsculpting! I was skeptical until I saw wonderful results from a friend’s recent Coolsculpting session. I went in for my consultation and we discussed my trouble areas. She was very professional and very honest. Her number one priority is her client’s happiness.

Melissa is very detailed throughout this process. It’s like she is an artist and will ensure that she is taking her time so that you get the results you desire.

There are myriads of skin products promising to make us youthful and wrinkle-free. We enjoy many of these products too, but also employ tools that help reverse aging from the inside out! OUR TOP FIVE ANTI-AGING FOODS:

1. Bone Broth 2. Omega 3 Fatty Acids (wild caught fish, raw or soaked nuts, seeds and oils) 3. Anti-Oxidant-Rich Fruits & Vegetables (berries, garlic, green leafy veggies) 4. Filtered Water (at least ½ body weight in ounces/day) 5. Collagen & Gelatin (gummies recipe below) GELATIN GUMMIES RECIPE

Gelatin strengthens skin, hair, nails and bones, helps repair leaky gut, and lubricates joints! We enjoy combining any fruit juice or smoothie base with powdered grass-fed gelatin to create homemade gummies! Be sure to involve the kids as you experiment with flavor combinations and enjoy your results.

| winter 2017

Ingredients:

20

• 2/3 cup Pomegranate-Cherry Juice • 1/3 cup Filtered Water • 1/4 cup Unflavored Gelatin

Method:

1. Bring the water to a slow boil and stir in the juice. Remove from the heat and whisk in the gelatin slowly, stirring until smooth. 2. Pour into an 8×8 inch dish or any silicone mold (we love to use gummy bear molds). 3. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm to the touch. If you use a silicone mold, freeze the gummies for 20 minutes at the end to simplify their removal. If using the baking dish, cut squares with a butter knife. 4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Alternate flavors:

• Fresh squeezed lime juice + water + honey + gelatin (margaritas!) • Cherry juice + water + fresh lime juice + honey + gelatin (cherry limeade) • Coconut milk + lime juice + honey + gelatin My Sister’s Table specializes in Private Nutritional Coaching, Holistic Group Courses and Live Cooking Demonstrations.

The vision for this space and it’s role in Buda has been passed through the generations of this family. The repurposed old barns, silos and buildings have been carefully reimagined into a unique gathering space for the community to savor good food and wine, shop locally and meet with friends.

DRIPPING SPRINGS

Fashion, Home & Gifts Meet The Ladies Behind Fresh Native in Dripping Springs FRESH NATIVE IS TRULY A FAMILY AFFAIR! WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO OPEN A SHOP TOGETHER?

When the shop hit the market, the timing was perfect for us. Cindy had grown tired of hauling furniture and setting up at antique shows for 14 years, Lillie had graduated from St. Edward’s, gotten married and moved back to Dripping Springs & Dixie had graduated from Texas Tech (Wreck em!) and moved back to Austin. As a close knit family, the opportunity of owning a store in our hometown seemed meant to be! We jumped at the chance and jumped into business! TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW LOCATION IN A WHITE FARMHOUSE.

Everyone always asks about the history of the house that we moved our store into in August. It was built in 1907 and moved to Dripping Springs from Rainey Street in Austin. We love the charm of our white farmhouse and were thrilled when this property became available. We think that the house fits well with our style and we love decorating with our products just like it is our second home. WHAT’S TRENDING FOR STYLES AND GIFTS THIS SEASON?

Metallics, gem tones and velvet are super haute trends this holiday season. Fresh Native has gathered as many trends as we can for our customers! Capri Blue released limited edition metallic candles in everyone’s favorite scent, Volcano, and a new scent for the holidays - Pink Peppermint. We have loaded our clothing racks with tons of crushed velvet (tops, socks, caps!) and gem tones from favorite brands like Free People and Bobeau! If trendy isn’t your style, don’t worry! We still have plenty of traditional holiday decor and just what you want to wear to your holiday parties and get-togethers!
