Ah! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted. Wow. One thing is for sure, I’ve thought about this place every day. Life gets busy, hectic even. The plan is to be back here a little more regularly with an update or perhaps an inspiration. Let’s catch up…

Last fall, I began my Masters of Business degree. This is the main reason for the break in posts. I love learning, I think I always have. Maybe it’s influenced in my absolute love and fondness for discovering new places, new adventures and new places on this world we live on. Getting back into the rhythm of school does take some adjustments but it will be worth it in the end. I’m really excited!

Traveling? Adventures? Well, if you know me, you know I can only sit for so long without getting up and having a little fun. So, what have we been up to? There’s so much to share, here’s a glimpse.

We ran a 5k (and I decided I need new shoes).

We had such a great time at the @rahrbrewing Oktoberfest 5k yesterday! Fall is here! @Oktoberfest #seefortworth #rahr

Came to terms that The Pioneer Woman makes the BEST chocolate pie. It’s so simple and delicious, you’ll want to forget that you made it for your family, hide in a closet and eat the whole thing yourself. Just kidding. Kind of. Here’s the link for the recipe.

I found the bagpipers in Fort Worth during their annual Christmas bar crawl! Spencer didn’t believe me when I said I heard bagpipes. Ho! Ho! Ho!

When bagpipers show up to the bar… #fortworth #tistheseason #bagpipers

A girls weekend to Choctaw Casino in Oklahoma for Spencer’s Grandmother’s 90th Birthday.

As always, enjoying the local watering holes and live music as well as finding some new ones. (More to come on this.)

We explored our backyard (aka Fort Worth) and came across this gem!

Yesterday, we decided we would explore parts of Fort Worth that we had not yet seen. As soon as we drove by this home, I was intrigued. Then, I saw a historical marker and knew we had to stop. Rock Island is one of the oldest parts of Fort Worth, known for the proximity to the railroad and the Rock Island Railroad Company. This is the Garvey-Viehl house. Built in the early 1880’s, it sits high on a hill overlooking the Trinity and the Coyote drive-in, not far from the historic Stockyards. Mr. Garvey was a grocery dealer who had a store on Main Street near the courthouse. His wife, was granddaughter of Baldwin Samuel who the street is named after. Imagine it’s grandeur years ago in all of its glory. (Yes, those are lions next to the front steps.) Now on the verge of being condemned and Fort Worth loses a little bit of its history. This would be the best little B&B or home if restored. What’s gem. Sadly, we never knew this part of town existed and it was the top find of our day. Now, I’m only intrigued further with a dream of restoring this home. #exploreyourcity #seefortworth #historicalmarker #thisoldhouse #ipulledoverforthis #garveyveihlhouse

And most recently, we went to Houston for an engagement party and had the chance to swing by NASA!
