My dear friend Karla visited from Dallas over Labor Day weekend. It was a great time to recharge and enjoy a few days before the school year kicks into high gear. We packed our cameras and went to some of my favorite spots in Houston in search of visual delights. I was inspired to plant some succulents at Thompson & Hanson Nursery  and sipped on divine mint lemonade at their restaurant, Tiny Boxwood’s. I dreamed of new rooms at nearby Indulge .

I got some supplies to get organized at The Container Store  and ran into a teacher (and her student teachers) I knew while there!  We enjoyed some fresh salt air in Galveston and was delighted to see the beaches were packed and stores are opening again on The Strand.
