In the past month, we have seen so much of life as we know it change. It changed minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-to-day. The streets were quieter, shops and restaurants were darker and people in some areas were a little more scarce. Some people worked from home, some were laid off or fur…

These days, Moms are wearing many hats. Not that we haven’t always, but in the last couple of months we added a few more that we weren’t expecting, like “teacher.” I will be the first to say that I have a deeper respect for all of the teachers out there, you do a job that most wouldn’t. And …

My mother is the absolute hardest person to buy gifts for. She literally needs nor wants anything. When I was growing up, my parents would each declare that they wanted no gifts at Christmas, but then one would buy the other something. In turn, I would be interrogated on the amount of the gi…

As a Mom of two young boys, ages 8 and 11, one can imagine what our household sounds like most of the time. Our boys fight hard and love hard. They are extremely competitive, and everything usually ends up in an argument or something that resembles a hockey fight with shirts being pulled off…

This is 2020. I just can’t say that without hearing Barbara Walters’ voice ringing through my head. Welcome to the New Year, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I don’t want to sit and write about all the ways I’m going to try to keep up with my New Year’s resolution, but rather,…

Christmas in our family has changed over the last few years. With the loss of both of my grandparents and then my father, our celebration together has grown very small. Growing up, we all spent Christmas Eve night at my grandparents house so we could wake up together Christmas morning. The d…

My husband and I purchased our home about six years ago and have been very blessed. We live outside of the city limits in a secluded neighborhood that consists of no more than 50 homes. It’s an older neighborhood, and the larger lots and lack of an HOA were the most appealing things to us wh…

We are officially through the first four weeks of middle school and I thought it would only be fair to share an update with everyone. In case you’ve missed my last couple of columns, our oldest son started middle school this year and we didn’t quite know what we were in for.

Even though it’s not official for a couple more weeks, fall is here. Pumpkin spice is in full swing, Friday Night Lights are back, and the leaves are getting closer to changing if they’re not completely fried from the summer drought. One of my favorite things during the fall is Homecoming, s…

It’s that time of year again. The summer days are drawing to a close, and most kids have either started school or start very soon. Tax-free weekend has come and gone. The school supply lists are crossed off, and new school clothes are clean and bright, for now. Regardless of whether your lit…

As many people know, I grew up on Lake McQueeney. So, the news that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority plans to drain the lake, along with the four remaining lakes was sad to hear, albeit, not much of a surprise.
