Weekend Spring Trip-Galveston, Texas

It's been a minute! But I am back. So much has happened in my life from the last blog post.  I have to tell you guys all about my move to my small cottage home, my journey from living a life in an unhappy marriage, the dating scene and finally finding love.  But for now, here is what happened on my impromptu weekend trip.  I needed to get away really bad. From working WAY too much at my new job (that I landed during COVID) to the regular stresses of being a working mom to a high school senior (how did THAT happen?!) You guys, I NEEDED this trip!  So I booked my hotel on the Hilton Honors app because I am a member :) then we decided to head out early on a Friday morning. It was an easy 5 hour drive from Dallas.  I mainly wanted to visit this cute little store on the Strand called The Witchery It has such a good vibe y'all. You must check it out. They had some crystals, books, and even a couple of rooms for psychic readings. Whether you are into that or not, you have to admit it

Finding Your Place in this World

Hello friends! Today I am going to share a story that involves my son. With his permission I will share what he has been through in the public school system and how home schooling and finding his place in the world has changed his life.  My son, Aaron, is an actor. Ever since he was a child, he loved entertaining others. I sent my son off to kindergarten an excited and happy boy, but slowly I started to notice a difference in his attitude.  He would come home saying to me that he was "stupid" or "slow". He related to me how he was often doing his work at recess while the other kids played. This, of course, broke my heart. After meeting with his teacher, and year after year, the same thing would happen, his father and decided to home school him. This was not an easy decision as I worked a demanding career outside the home. But we made it work. We slowly started to see a change in our son. He was reading and enjoying learning again. I was getting my son back!

Summer Acting Camps 2019 Continued

I can't believe we have only two more weeks left of school.  Summer is quickly approaching and the question that most parents have is: what are we going to do with the kids?  Many kids go off to summer camp. I know my son did back when he was 1o. We quickly learned he is NOT an outdoor kid! Ever since he was 4 years old, Aaron knew he wanted to be in the entertainment industry. Do you have a child like this? Constantly putting on "a show" for friends and family?  If you do, then you will want to consider Dallas Young Actors Studio! It's a fun place to be. Kids as young as 5 train to be professional actors and go on to get hired in Hollywood. Check out the success stories on the website at We have been so impressed during the last three years that Aaron has been training here at Dallas YAS.  But the best part is that these young people learn not only to act in front of the camera  but behind the camera too.

Film Making Right Here in Dallas - Teen and Kids Acting Camps

One of the great things about Dallas is the variety of activities that are available for our kids to do. For years, my son, Aaron and I searched for a great place for him to learn acting.  You have heard me rave about the Dallas Young Actors Studio in Dallas. Here, they train children from as young as 7 up to 17 and even adults!  So many success stories have come out of here. You can read all about those at the DYAS website The Summer Acting Camps are almost full and one of the best things about these camps is that the kids get to participate in every aspect of film making/TV taping. From the actors to the film production crew, this place offers young people the opportunity to learn and grow and use their imagination! They can go on to successful careers in Hollywood making films, whether in a film crew, lighting, sound mixing-even make up!   Check out the video for some behind the scenes footage of these camps!  And here are some s
