Alas, the end of 2020 is almost here and I think I speak for most of us when I say, “Hit the road, Jack, and don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more!” Not that I am expecting a whole new world on Jan. 1, because we are far from over with this pandemic, but I think we’ve all ha…

It has been a while since I have written about my adventures in motherhood, so I thought this would be a good time for an update. Our boys have outgrown the days of cartoons and sippy cups, and we have entered the most eventful stage of “preteen.” The eye-rolling and exaggerated sighs when w…

It’s hard to believe that it is already November. To say this year is nothing short of a blur, would be an understatement. However, here we are, and the holidays are just around the corner.

On Thursday, I got to tag along with Deitz Flower Shop’s Happiness Ambassadors Beverly Bonkowski and Samantha Lum as they delivered a little cheer around town. They, along with the rest of the crew at the local business, took turns handing out bouquets of flowers and in return received smiles.

Today just so happens to be my husband Brian’s 37th birthday, so I thought I would dedicate this week’s column to him. I don’t even know where to start, but I suppose the beginning is a good place. We met in college almost 16 years ago, although we have slightly different stories when it com…

Things are starting to feel a little normal again. This past Tuesday, we attended our oldest son’s first football game, ever. After one season of flag football when he was 5, we decided that we’d prefer him to learn to play the game at an older age. We didn’t necessarily “hold him back;” he …

In their season opening 28-19 loss to La Vernia on Friday night, Navarro Panthers committed as many turnovers — six — as they did in all 14 games of their 2019 season combined.

As a 35-year-old woman, it’s hard for me to imagine a time when women did not have the same rights as men. This past week marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, Women’s Right to Vote. Naturally, this piqued my interest and I started to do some research to read more about that ti…

Usually about this time of year, we are printing the kids’ school supply lists, getting new shoes and clothes for back to school, taking a final trip to the beach and preparing for the winding down of summer. But COVID-19 has disrupted that once again.

Let me start with a full disclaimer: I am in NO WAY writing this to dishonor, minimize, belittle or in any other way disparage mothers, moms, mamas, meemaws or women who carry on the immense gravity of bearing and rearing children.

Graduation is always such a roller coaster of emotions. Parents can’t believe their babies have grown up so fast. Children can’t believe they finally made it and are ready for independence. Teachers are filled with pride and so much more. But this year is especially difficult given the curre…

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 …

In my lifetime, I have witnessed such disasters as the Oklahoma City Bombing, Columbine and 9/11. Although I was young when those events happened, one thing that I remember most is seeing and hearing amazing stories of communities coming together in a time of need. This pandemic is unlike an…

Easter is the first major holiday to be celebrated during the current global health crisis. Families will not have the opportunity to gather for church, meals or the always-exciting egg hunt. This is a new normal for everyone around the world, and I can’t help but feel sad for our current si…

These last few weeks have been nothing short of a rollercoaster of emotions. Literally, everything changes by the minute and I think one of the hardest parts is that there is so much unknown.

On Friday, as County Judge Kyle Kutscher made the announcement that Guadalupe County had its first confirmed positive case of coronavirus, the news spread like wildfire.

It is estimated that this year, there will be more than 1.8 million new cancer cases reported and more than 600,000 deaths due to the disease, according to the American Cancer Society.

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…
