This vacation style guide is for if you’re looking for a little adventure, and would rather look more like Ginger (or Mary Ann) in Gilligan’s Island than Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Like you want to be stranded on a tropical island, but in a good way. I love Spring. After some heavy rain and dreary days in Texas, everything is starting to come to life again. The… View Post
Flowing pleated spring dresses tied at the waist with string. I love the way a light breeze gives a little life to a spring dress. It reminds me that dresses are made for dancing in, that there’s something new around the corner, and that days should be filled with sun and laughter. Make it matter. – Photography by Chris – … View Post
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I wasn’t sure whether or not I was going to like the Goldfinch. Yes, I used to love bildungsromans (coming of age stories) when I was younger, but now that I am well into adulthood, I was not convinced that a bildungsroman about a male would be relatable to me. Also, the book… View Post
During a little bit of morning down time at the Palm Springs conference, I went to Joshua Tree National Park for a hike. I wish I had been able to stay longer! The joshua trees were beautiful. A joshua tree is a spiky tree with oblong arms that was until recently considered to be part of the lily family. It… View Post
I recently flew to Palm Springs for a work conference, eTail West. An early morning plane flight gets me every time. I love feeling the earth drop away behind me as the plane lifts into the air, and the peacefulness of rolling clouds below. I was on the red eye, so I kept drifting in and out of sleep. But… View Post
Do people even surf in Texas? Where are Texas Waves? I hear this all the time. Or jokes about how there are no waves or surf in the Gulf. It’s true, most days the Gulf has waves that are much weaker than the big ocean waves in Hawaii. The Gulf’s waves are always weakened by the Caribbean islands. But Texas has… View Post
Day For Night was last weekend, and it was refreshing. I wish the music festival had been the kickoff for an 8 week art exhibition, but all of the art came down after the weekend was over. Chris worked on some of the art install. I helped talk him through how to do some of it. When I was younger… View Post
As the days get shorter, the waves get longer. This was one of the best days in a long while. When we first arrived at the beach, the waves were too big and fast to ride, but then they died down and cleaned up a little bit.
I love it when grey skies give way to rainbows at the beach – this time there were two. A rainbow within a rainbow, with two feet that touched the ground. On days like this, it is so pretty that it almost doesn’t seem real.
Are these waves even real? Is this even Texas? The answer is yes. Texas waves ftw.
