Welcome! I’m Sierra!

I’m so glad that you are here! I am Sierra, lead writer and photographer behind Very Truly Texas.

I live in beautiful Texas Hill Country with my sweet family – husband & three kiddos. We happily fill our days with exploring our area and making fun day trips, and this site allows us to share our experiences with you!

We strive to provide detailed travel itineraries as well as plenty of photos for visual inspiration. Our main goal is to encourage everyday families like us to seek adventure and make space in their daily lives to explore the world around them!

Whether you are a lucky Texas local or visiting for a month or a day, stick around awhile and find some detailed itinerary ideas and hidden gems.

When we aren’t finding the best brisket or seeking out a new natural swimming spot, I’m probably planning our next trip to the mountains or a tropical island, cheering from the sidelines of a soccer field, baseball diamond or dance stage, playing with my camera, or munching on berries and dark chocolate.

For travel questions, business inquiries, or just to say hello, feel free to reach me directly at sierra@verytrulytexas.com. I hope to get the opportunity to chat with you very soon!
