Journey Across the Pond

Hello! Hello!

Lucy Fran (Kendra), Gert (Meghan) and Kayrou (Stephanie) are flying to London freaking England. Yes, I know most of you have been there before, heck, most of you LIVE in the area, but for some of us (okay, all three) this is our first time to that part of the world/Europe and we are stoked. Can I use that word? Apparently, b/c I just did. What what.

Here is our tentative itinerary:

Oct 27 - Arriving in London
Thomas Feakins (much love for putting up with us!) has planned our trip in the UK. His advice to Steph was to stop asking questions and for us three to pack rain gear. Ya know, it’s maddening, but the more we tell people about our trip, the more they tell us we picked the wrong time to go. It’s going to be raining and dismal and cold. Such pessimists! Heck – don’t they KNOW us? We are going to rock the rain! (possibly visiting with Gavin’s brother)

Most likely we’ll make it to Ireland Oct 31 or Nov 1. Fiona and Gavin’s entire extended family have kindly offered us suggestions on what to do/see (and all you wonderful Irish people that aren’t currently in Ireland).

Now for the FUN (aka, WARMER – slightly – weather!)

Flying to Italy around Nov 4, visiting every small town on the way North, train through Switzerland, Munich for four days (thanks Julia) then over to Paris for five days (Kimberly)! And finally making our way to the Netherlands where we’ll visit with Joss and Oliver and party it up Dutch Style.

The girls will drop Lucy Fran at the London airport Dec 1 and finish their adventures in the UK (mainly Wales – BOB/LLyr, Scotland - ). Until Dec 7 when they fly home.

Of course, we all know that none of that will happen. We’ll prolly get on the wrong flight, end up in Spain or disappear on a Greek Island for a few weeks. Whatever, we can deal.

We’ll try to update every few days (at least once a week). Check back and if you have friends/family/mates/3rd cousins you’ve never met in any of these areas, please, help us girls out. We’ll bring the wine if they provide the floor space!

Dancing the Night Away in New Orleans!

Bonjour Mes Amis! Picture this: I’m sitting on the floor, playing with my nephews when I receive a text, asking if I have plans over the upcoming weekend. Other than having a margarita to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and tentative plans to attend the Dynamo vs LA Galaxy game, nada (and by tentative, I mean, the game was sold out, and my long reach of soccer connections was not proving fruitful). So, I was available for adventure! D received two VIP tickets to the Jazz Fest for May 5 th and 6 th and wanted a drama free companion (I guess I passed that test over the trek to Havasu! *pats self on the back*). Many shout outs and thanks to K2 for enjoying their Honeymoon so much, they decided to share it with us (and by share, I mean give us the tickets while they leisurely drove towards home, with a detour through Dallas)! Jazz. Fest. New. Orleans.  Could the weekend be set up for any more fun? Fortunately, for us, yes! D was told by J (again, thank you, Havasu tri

Christmas Letter

Hello Beautiful, Amazing, Wonderful People!  As 2018 comes to a close, I’m so thankful to those who’ve supported me over the last year. 2018 was a huge transition year for me. I entered it uncertain what the year would bring, where I would travel, who I would meet, even where I would be sleeping. Twelve months later, I’ve moved back to the city of my teen years, started a business, and am filled with a sense of rightness and jubilation. Many, many thanks to those who let me crash at their place when my life was filled with uncertainty. To those who sat down with me to talk out my business plan or brainstorm ideas.   To the remarkable people who frequently inquired about my progress and to those who have been praying for me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Today, we took my Aunt and Uncle to tour Galveston. On the drive home, my mom, Aunt, and I sang Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. Before you picture beautiful harmony, let me explain that on a scale of 1 make

Enduring the Pandemic Life

January. February. March. These months flew by, with me hard at work on surpassing 2020 goals. Then BAM! a pandemic struck and suddenly I had a new bestie (aka my bright red couch) and access to a friend’s aunt’s Netflix login and another friend’s Hulu login, plus the Parentals’ Xfinity account. Whew. How does anyone accomplish anything with so many show options? And so many crazy, I don’t know why I’ve just spent 8 hours watching this show, shows to choose from? It became a new obsession that I quickly (38 days later) put a halt to, and currently (as of yesterday), only allow myself to watch shows on the weekend (so far, I’m going strong!). Oh, did you hear? As of May 1, Texas professional home organizers were allowed to return to work. Yippee! At the time, my mom and I were anxiously (eagerly?) awaiting CoVid-19 test results (she had all the symptoms; I had zero symptoms, BUT we had just seen each other for the first time in almost 4 weeks and 3 days later she develops a
