There where so many fun things to see and do. I am glad that I was able to attend the fourth installment of their #GirlsNightOut event series. Graciously, Erin changed the theme at almost the last minute to accommodate and encourage attendees to make donations to those in our area impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Thus, Houston Strong became the theme for this event. ⬆️CLICK PIC TO READ MORE⬆️
I had an absolutely fun day hanging with a dear friend. We visited The Menil Collection, which was one of my frequent destinations when I lived in the Montrose area of Houston during my college years. We talked about being wives and moms, chasing dreams and living on purpose. The struggles of balancing it all, maintaining healthy relationships and continuing to grow as a person can be a lot. It was helpful for both of us to hear we are not alone in that struggle. That's why we could all stand a bit more fun!
When I was in kindergarten, I asked my parents for someone for me to play with. I'm sure this is a typical request for those of us who are born as the first children in our family. My younger sister Christian was born a year later, and five-year-old me thought this was a sharp contrast to the pal I'd requested. For a long time my little sister was just a kid who copied me, required me to take chaperone her to the bathroom per our mother's request, and embarrassed me more than any one in the world (save for maybe our younger brother). Somewhere around the time I was in high school, I realized my little sister might be actually kinda cool. ⬆️CLICK PIC TO READ MORE⬆️
