Are you ready to transform?

Are you busy all the time while stuffing down your mental and emotional needs?

Are you longing for connection and support but find yourself constantly giving it away instead? 

Do you crave meaningful conversations about your heart's desires and how to make those dreams come true?

Author and motivational speaker Christy Hughes is ready to help you recharge your compassionate spirit and renew your power to dream big. Her monthly weekend retreats are designed to support your self-development journey and provide tools for a more empowered way of life.

Be seen, heard and held by a small intimate circle of friends and Mother Nature herself. Leave with new ideas, new friendships, and an abundance of confidence to pursue your dreams!

Shed all your worries at the gate and take your glamping experience to a higher level...

your transformational weekend in nature has arrived.

Part Time Pastures hobby farm is centrally located between DFW and Austin in Hamilton, Texas. A short jaunt from 281, you'll enjoy the scenic two-lane country drive as much as the rustic venue itself.

Our 600-square foot studio will be the gathering space for workshops, yoga, meditation, and sound therapy. Each month brings new themes to support you on your personal growth journey, with most incorporating movement or sound to fully integrate the lessons. 


There will be plenty of free time to wander our 20-acre working hobby farm in Hamilton County, Texas. Bring your camera for beautiful nature photography or your binoculars for birdwatching. Tap into your creative side with wildflower pressing or collage, or feed the cows for a real taste of ranch life!


All meals will be provided on retreat weekends, including locally sourced sandwiches, baked goods and a farm-to-table style dinner. Gather around the campfire for a sweet treat as we roast our own S'mores (weather permitting).



La Adelita

A 400-square foot cabin shell converted into a stylish tiny house. This casita features twin beds, a kitchenette, and a full-size bathroom with soaker tub. The wraparound deck nearly double the outdoor living space. La Adelita sleeps two for $699 per person.

The Mallard

Our 2000 Fleetwood Mallard travel trailer is as kitschy as it is comfortable. It's been our perfect weekend escape since 2018 and was renovated in April 2022 to serve the next generation of guests. It includes a queen bed, futon couch, shower and kitchenette with microwave. The Mallard sleeps two for $529 per person.

Glamping Tents

Three White Duck Regatta tents will be set up for retreat weekends and decked out in true glamper style, with cozy twin memory foam mattresses and essential creature comforts. Each tent sleeps two for $399 per person. Each is outfitted with a Big Buddy heater for the winter.

If traveling solo, roommates will be assigned several weeks before each event.

"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently."

-Maya Angelou


Courage helps us step out of our comfort zones and live the life we've only pined for in our minds. It helps us minimize the opinions of others and stand up for what we know to be true in our hearts. 


"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples."

-Mother Teresa


Kindness creates connection, an experience the pandemic taught us not to take for granted. Being kind feels like an uphill battle most of the time but imagine the lives you can positively impact through compassionate acts...namely, your own.
