I don’t know about anyone else’s first grader, but mine is constantly announcing to the world that she is, in fact, in the first grade. If we tell her not to run into the street, she said, “I am a first grader. I know not to run into the street and get runned over.”
Happy October 1 everyone. I can’t believe it has already arrived. I don’t know that I believe in having a favorite month of the year, but if I did, October would be pretty close to winning the prize.
For as long as I can remember, when the long summer days begin to shorten, a cool breeze starts to cut through the humid North Texas air, and walking outside becomes pleasant once again, I’m at my happiest.

What is it about fall that makes me want to spend my days in the kitchen cooking? A simple trip to the store for paper towels becomes an expedition for my latest Pinterest-passion as I succumb to decorating and cooking everything with spices and pumpkin.
I am happy to announce that, as of last weekend, I am officially an uncle!
How can it be that Autumn and Arts Fest has already come and gone for another year?
I don’t know if most people like the band U2, but suffice to say that many people do. They’ve sold more than 150 million records, and Bono’s mom couldn’t have bought more than, like, a few hundred of those. So yeah, they’re popular.
