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.

Tom and I spent the weekend in Seattle sightseeing. What a great city! We walked all day long and saw flying fish and flowers in Pike Place Market, kids splashing in a huge fountain at Seattle Center, and Victorian architecture and a totem pole in Pioneer Square. Visited Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, too. We were total tourists, and had lots of fun!

Back to school trainings resume next week and I am feeling fully recharged! Take time for yourself as we prepare for a new school year!

Look at these beautiful sunflowers!
