My Favorite Accounts!

The other day, our entire Boerne retailers group was asked to list a few of our favorite LOCAL lifestyle, food, fashion, travel, style, and influential instagram accounts and bloggers. I was surprised that no one listed me 😉….. But I came up with a pretty long list of my favorites! So I thought I’d take… Read more »

Kendall County Jr. Livestock Show

The broiler project for the Jr. Livestock Show has certainly been an experience!       Over the last five years, we’ve raised the chickens indoors (in the garage) and outdoors.  In handmade buildings and in our water trough (that has been used as our pool during the rest of the year).  😉 We’ve had… Read more »

TRAVEL TEXAS- Ox Ranch & Drive Tanks!!!

This was our third Christmas without gifts, our third Christmas to celebrate experiences and our family. Two years ago was Galveston and Moody Gardens.  Last year was Waco, Cameron Park Zoo, and the Magnolia Silos.

GUEST POST! By Gabriel Diego Delgado

I’m not sure how many of you know that I’m also a photographer.  For the last ten years I’ve only focused on children and families.  But for the first three years, I photographed everything.  I loved doing artsy prints, landscapes, and macro (where I was getting into the fine details of flowers and bugs).  It… Read more »

Camp Drunken Arrow

Last year I was a sponsor.  But this year I got to be a sponsor AND a camper! So…. My adventure began a few weeks ago, when I had to start sterilizing jars and taking inventory of my ingredients.  Having everything ready, I got to work making dozens of fresh lip balms, healing salves, body… Read more »

The Kendall County Fair

Another fair in the books!  More fun had, more memories made, more accomplishments, more prize ribbons! The weekend started with me sneaking over to the fairgrounds to check the big chunk of our entries.  It was a great kickstart to the fun! I did well.  My chocolate muffins won third place.  My pineapple cake won… Read more »
