I love my home town. There are two cities in this country that make me melt. New York City (figuratively) and Houston (figuratively and literally). But Houston has the upper hand because all of my family and friends are here. I am definitely a city girl. I would much rather live in the concrete jungle […]

For two weeks I missed this boy. How happy I was when I saw this guy round the corner and head my way at the airport! Aaron spent two weeks in Virginia for school. He’s going to grad school online getting his masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and although all of his courses are […]
