    A Brief Detour…

    As you’ve noticed, we haven’t written much lately.

    Life comes at you fast. One minute we’re getting this blog launched, preparing to market it to build readership, and coming up with new fun things to write about. The next minute, you’re taking your father to the hospital right after he came to town for the July 4th holiday. We’ve been visiting new places over the last month, but most of them are in and around the Texas Medical Center.

    We’ll be back to writing about fun things to do on the weekend soon. But right now, it’s more important that we spend the time to take care of our own.

    This blog is all about celebrating life, and family is a big part of that. We’ll be back once things settle down. After all, dad always has been someone who’s up for a cocktail made with the good stuff or a day trip to explore new places, and he always wanted to share what he knew.

    Home is our favorite place to be

    With his many travels for work, John always says “Home is his favorite place to be.” Mine, too.

    We’re home this weekend after two short escapes to the Hill Country. Well, I leave tomorrow night for a conference in Washington D.C. and will be back on Thursday. I decided I wanted to get in a walk today. One of my favorite places to walk is up to the adjacent neighborhood called Lakeshore Harbor. The homes look out on serene lakes and fountains. It’s peaceful. I enjoy walking over there and then taking a time out to sit on one of the benches and quietly reflect.

    We like to travel and see new places, but we both travel a lot for work so home truly is a haven. It’s a place of rest and recharging after hectic and stressful days. I don’t think I will ever be the homebody my dad was, but I have grown to appreciate the simplicty of  just being at home.

    Enjoy your weekend and whatever it is that brings you joy!
