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.

In 1995, my parents delivered the worst news possible a 10-year-old girl could hear “we’re moving!” My father had taken a job in Dallas and needed to be closer to work. The sign was set in our yard and four days later the house sold. I just remember running to my room, burying my head in a p…

Growing up, I was especially close to my mom, her sister and daughter — my aunt and cousin. We spent so much time together. We used to tell people that my aunt was my mother and my mom was my cousin’s mother, as we look so much alike. And even though my aunt and cousin moved to Virginia in 1…

When I met my husband nearly 15 years ago, I knew there was something special about this guy, but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Back then we were just a couple of college kids trying to make it through this strange chapter in our lives, where we were still so young but living in a som…

It’s hard to believe that this past year has flown by as quick as I did. I know that we are always saying that, but this year truly did. Last August, I started the Leadership of Seguin program through the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce. I had always heard great things about the program from…

While the national news cycle seems focused on the Mueller Report and the Trump administration’s denial of its conclusions as well as access to the full version, Trump and his handpicked advisors like National Security Advisor John Bolton, Special Representative for Venezuela Elliot Abrams, …

Last week, I laid out several reasons why those in office tend to stay in office. From gerrymandering to war chests, the game is already rigged. Today, I want to show you some of the ways that this rigging allows for the worst possible outcomes in politics, where the common voice is all but …

May is here. The spring showers have kept true to their word this year so far, hoping that it continues in moderation to avoid any flooding or drought this summer. The school year is winding down, just a few more weeks until the kids get their freedom for three months. We are hitting some mi…

Easter means different things to each of us. Whether it pertains to your religious beliefs or family traditions, we all have a way of celebrating it. Personally, it always brings back memories from my childhood. It was your pretty average Easter weekend. We would dye eggs on Good Friday, chu…

Last weekend was definitely one for the books. The Leadership Seguin Class of 2018-19 held its Kickball Tournament and Barbecue Cook-Off fundraiser event to raise money for much needed improvements at the Seguin Little League Fields. Both events were a tremendous success.
