The last several days have been cold. Cold for us, anyway. We’ve had below freezing temps, ice and then yesterday we were blessed with a real snowfall. I say, “blessed” because we seldom get snow – ice is quite the norm for us if we get any kind of winter precipitation, so to get snow […]
After a full and fun day of shooting cows, swine, horses, cowgirls and cowboys at the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, my wonderful husband and I drove north to see a young friend in her high school’s fine arts musical production where she was playing the lead.

It started with teaching my baby dolls and stuffed animals reading, writing and arithmetic from my bedroom chalkboard. Then when in elementary school, I began teaching the neighborhood children dance routines. We would put on […]
A couple of months ago I was contacted by Brian with the Jefferson General Store in, yes, Jefferson. Jefferson, Texas is a small east Texas town with a lot of history and quaintness about it. It’s one of my favorite places to visit! In the Fall of 2012, I was there for a girls-weekend with my friend, Kris. We […]
