Thanksgiving weekend digest

mother neff state park

Happy Monday! I’m back in my office today – bright and early. One of the best things about a holiday is that other people are off too, so email doesn’t pile up like it might on a random day off. I hope that your Monday post-Thanksgiving is going well – or do you have the post-holiday blues? I’m torn. I’m…

family

Good morning and happy Tuesday. Because it’s a short week for me, I’ll be blogging today and tomorrow, but you won’t see me back on here until Monday.

I’m a night owl regardless, but I’ve had a hard time this week shutting down my computer when it’s already dark out. I feel like my whole day is gone. To combat some of these time change blues, I’ve made it a habit to…

Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a weekend to remember: it was Boot Walk Weekend! After I finished Friday’s blog, I had a l-o-n-g day of work ahead of me.

Friday Favorites: November Edition

Astros golden retrievers

Happy Friday! I’m starting the first Friday in November off the right way: with my holiday Starbucks cup in hand. They put out their holiday cups yesterday, but since I still hadn’t gone to grab a pumpkin spice latter (who am I?) at all in October, I decided I needed to grab one before they were gone. A November Cool…

Happy Wednesday (for those of you who aren’t Houston Astros fans). For those of us who live in Houston, that was a rough loss last night. I’ll always be a ‘Stros fan, and they had a heck of a season. Proud of them for making it to the World Series! Last week I shared about my time as a Baylor…
