TRAVEL TEXAS (Sea World San Antonio)

Even though this isn't a typical Travel Texas article, and we really didn't have to travel far to Sea World, I thought it should be highlighted for anyone that is looking for a cool travel destination.  And if you're an animal-lover like us, you'll want the scoop on these opportunities. The first time I saw the animal interactions offered was in an e-mail a few years ago.  Evan wasn't old…

Our Products in a New Shop (Shapeshifters)

I was approached by Shapeshifters a few months ago, with a sweet and enthusiastic e-mail.  I quickly learned all about this new business in Boerne, could see that the owners had a passion for other small local businesses, and knew a great partnership was going to unfold.   The owners, Hank and Pamela Hattoy, stopped by my shop one day for a visit and sampling.  And next thing I knew,…

Kendall County Jr. Livestock Show

We cuddled, we fed, we watered, we raised, we chose the show birds, and we processed the delicious chicken.  Ben and Nathan handled all the action in the ring.  And Ben was a pro (again) on the auction stage. Another broiler project in the books!           And what happened on auction day that was really exciting? I found out the day before that Petland was moving…

TRAVEL TEXAS (The Farmhouse at Stoney Hill Ranch)

I discovered and enjoyed another airbnb gem, nestled in some farmland just outside of Waco! After a three hour drive from Boerne, we pulled up to the gate to the property... and then up to the farmhouse.  We took a quick "Ooh!  Look at this!  Eek!  Look in here!" run-through of the house.  And then settled right in.     Through the french door entry, we walked straight into the…

Holiday Magic Festival of Lights!

The boys and I made the trek from Boerne to Retama Park last night.  After the adventure of the late-5:00 traffic through north San Antonio, we spent the evening enjoying the beautiful weather and festival! Most of the event had transformed the parking lot and surrounding grounds into a magical winter wonderland! A large part of it was the lantern and lights display... dozens of unique and colorful sculptures made…

My Texas Market!

First, I have to start with that it's been over a month since I've blogged?!  Life got busy! Especially with also owning a children's portrait business, things have been crazy this holiday season! But I'm happy to be back at it.  I'm happy that I set aside this time to make it happen. And I'm happy that I jumped out of my comfort zone... and also made myself get out of…

Our Products in a New Shop (The Mill)

I discovered The Mill in Cibolo just a few weeks after they began posting on instagram.  I was intrigued by their 1929 lumber mill remodel; I was anxious to hear about what was going inside the building; I was loving the beautiful reclaimed materials that they were using!  By July of 2016 they had opened their doors, welcoming people into a mish-mash of wood, metal, brick, vintage furniture, items for…
