Aside from that, where can you find one that purely tastes like Texas? But literally, the water...is Texas water.

With plenty of sparkling waters available in the market, Rambler is made and inspired by the clear Texas water. Rambler only chooses sustainable water resources since water is known to be a scare resource. They are also in partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation where a portion of their sales go towards the said

Floor plans influence the home's construction and are one of the very important parts of any home building or renovation. If you are eyeing on building or renovating your home but aren't sure which floor plan is best, this blog is for you. We'll talk about the pros and cons of each and on which is the best floor plan for your home. Is it an open concept or a traditional/closed floor plan?

 

What is an Open Floor Plan?

Open floor plans refer to a house wherein two or more spaces are joined in order to form a larger space. This eliminates the partition walls that usually divide rooms into parts. A great example would be joining the kitchen, dining, and living room making it into a communal living space.

Yesterday, we finally made time to check out the Fortlandia exhibit at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin.  I had been hearing great things, and it didn't disappoint.  There are 10 different forts designed and built by local artists/designers and they're amazing to see and experience.  They were created to spark an appreciation for art and nature, and there is even a place and materials so you can build your own fort.  It was a super fun way to get outside, have a nice walk, and spend time together.  Then you can even grabbed lunch at the cafe.  The forts are all super unique and the kids loved getting to run and play and explore.  If you want to check it out, you need to hurry-It's only here for a few more weeks.  I hope this exhibit

I always enjoy reading fun facts about others, so here are a few about me. 

Don’t worry – I’m going to have Steve do this next. Ha!

  1.     I’m an early bird and love my time in the mornings before anyone else is awake.
  2.     I’m addicted to Audible books – currently listening to several (usually parenting, business, and self help).
  3.     I’m an only child (and so is Steve).
  4.     I’m a fast walker, and it’s SUPER tough for me to slow down.
  5.     I love to explore new cities, restaurants, places, etc.
  6.     I studied accounting/finance at A&M and I’m a CPA and a masters in Taxation.
