Happy Friday, friends – we made it! I had a chilly tennis lesson last night (and by chilly, I mean that it was in the 40s here in Houston – which is cold for us), and I’ve got a bit of a shorter day today. My friend was recently elected judge, so I’m headed to her investiture, which is her…

I’m back in my groove (for the most part), and the holidays are far enough behind us to start writing a new chapter for the new year.

First Friday Favorites of 2023

Happy Friday, friends! We’ve officially made it through the first week of 2023. How did everyone do? Did you spend the majority of your wee trying to remember how to log into your computers – and how to actually be a human? Or were you super productive? This describes my week. That was my exact thought on Monday evening. But,…
