I’m a city girl. Having grown up in Houston and then living centrally in both West University and Montrose after college, I thrive in a bustling environment with all of my favorite things at my fingertips but still plenty of space to call my own, walk the dog and go for a drive. So when we started house hunting around town, the Heights immediately seemed like the most natural fit. A charming, dynamic and constantly evolving neighborhood with a range of traditional, Victorian-style and bungalow homes, new townhomes, walking and biking trails, trendy restaurants, dive bars, cute boutiques, city parks, and proximity to the Galleria, Downtown Houston, Upper Kirby, Washington Heights and Montrose (not to mention easy access to nearly all highways), the Heights combines a cool, young vibe with rich historic character and is the epitome of what makes Houston so magical.
Spring has sprung and I’m so excited to see this warm, wonderful sunshine! We’ve been spending a lot of time outside over the last few days and it’s such a welcomed change from the dreary, wet weeks we recently had here in Houston. And to celebrate this sunshine, let’s talk for a minute about the power of a good pair of sunnies, shall we? Guys, I snagged these new shades on super duper sale recently and they have totally upped my spring accessory game.
Back in January, I vowed to make 2017 the year of “embracing my imperfections” and reminding myself that I am enough. It’s hard to even begin to describe how accurate this concept is for me in this season of life — as a first-time mom learning how to do this whole motherhood thing. And I’m seeing this more and more as the days, weeks and months go by. In a nutshell: the last week has been a doozie. I mean a real doozie, y’all. I’ve been tested in many ways… emotionally, physically, spiritually. I’ve ridden a roller coaster that so many of you can likely relate to; yet this seems to be my truest taste of imperfection to date in 2017.
