• Good Reads: My Summer Book List

    When I was younger the best habit I had, was keeping my camera and a good book near by. I would loose myself in my books, in those stories and places. I don’t read as much as I used to, but I try to still make time, Me Time. This is my summer reading list.

  • Magnolia Market At The Silos

    I have been a fan of Fixer Upper on HGTV for a long time. I am not only an admirer of Chip and Jo’s work, but I find a lot inspiration in their work ethic and family ties. This visit to Waco, Texas was a long time coming. These days I can’t help but think of Chip and Jo when I think of Waco and Texas Travel. They have introduced this beautiful state and city to people all from all over the United States. Waco was their greatest fixxer upper. We finally ventured out to Waco, during Spring At The Silos. I looked into it and aside from the regular…
