Thank-FULL

By

It was my husband’s family’s Thanksgiving this year. We alternate holidays between families. It is just easier and we can really enjoy the family we are with during that specific holiday. We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving. Kris has 3 siblings and we were very fortunate to be able to all be together this Thanksgiving. We traveled on Tuesday and pulled right into Rosa’s mexican restaurant, my absolute favorite. The kids and I always split the chicken fajita plate, chips and queso, and definitely have to have a so papilla. Licking my lips as I type!

Sweet Berry Farm Family Fun

By

¬†On Saturday we headed out to Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls, TX. It is a family farm with many activities for all. We had such a wonderful day. We invited our good friends the Gerstenberger’s. Gage and Jayden have been besties since about 20 months old. They met at a home daycare that I took Gage to on the days I taught dance lessons. Now they are both in school, and going to different schools so their time together is limited, but we make it a point to get together or have Jayden over to spend the night at least once a month.
Anyway, back to the farm … I haven’t had such a peaceful day in a long time as I had last Saturday. We laughed and laughed. The best part of it all is that my kids were happy and we weren’t in a rush to get anywhere. On these leisurely days, we are reminded how hectic our lives can be and it was a much needed day of rejuvenating.

Concan Lovin’

By

We LOVE us some Concan, TX! This is where my Nanee and Pop met. She was working at Neal’s cafe during the summer when in walked my Pop and it was love at first sight. They were married three months later and married over 50 years. This was the very first time we have been to Concan without my Nanee. We lost her July 2011 and there isn’t a day that doesn’t go by that I don’t think about her. She was my best friend! So this trip was very bittersweet for all of us. This picture is taken right outside the cafe and is another tradition of my family’s!

Happy Fall Y’all!

By

It’s FALL Y’ALL and out of all the fall activities, my favorite is taking my kiddos to the local fresh produce market. I was a “really happy person” the day the market posted on face book the picture of the pumpkins arriving on a semi! My kids get excited too. Cullen’s, the local market, is so welcoming to the families taking pictures in the pumpkins. I have done this for 6 years now. I can remember taking Gage for his first pumpkin patch picture and this is also where I took Gracie for her birth announcement picture in the summertime with all the beautiful flowers.

I am definitely a summertime girl, but when those pumpkins roll in I find a little pep in my step. It’s fun kicking off the fall with new pumpkin pics. of my kids and then buying pumpkins and mums for my front porch display. Even though we live in the country and not many see our front porch, it sure does make me happy when I pull up.
