Even though today is October 31st, a personal note is much more my speed vs. a forced Halloween post, so here we go... I originally had a different quote planned for today, but as I was going through Saturday's mail a belated birthday present came from my parents. It was a bracelet engraved with the wording "she believed she could so she did" and a card letting me know they are nothing but proud of their daughter. The thing is, I was anticipating a Starbucks gift card, so a m
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I wanted to fill you in on an up-and-coming nonprofit. It’s called the Pink Pouch Project and it was launched by my friend Amber Marsh, and her husband JD, right here in Houston. The mission of the Pink Pouch Project is to provide all mastectomy patients with a functional and comfortable drainage pouch.

So today the “about” section on Facebook has been updated and re-written below. It will hopefully clear up exactly what my intentions are with this page and why I started writing in the first place. But before you dive in, I need to thank every single person who has had my back re
Today I am filling you in a personal secret...I am a huge card person. Simple, personal notes from friends and family make me incredibly happy. So when I receive an unexpected piece of mail from a vendor, I get pretty excited. A perfect example of this is Veronica at TheFourThreads.com. Quick story: I, like most of the world, am obsessed with Etsy. I will probably have over 1000 favorites by Xmas but only ONE time did I receive a thank you note for favoring an item, and that
