For this past trip to Texas we switched it up a bit and invited the boys to come along! It was my brother’s first time to Texas so we stayed longer than normal and made a mini vacation out of it. Other than over-indulging and a Ranger’s game, we didn’t do anything too out of the ordinary. We simply just had the best time hanging out, playing games and lounging by the pool.

During the days, my mom and I would slip away for appointments here and there, but were so pleased with what we were accomplishing that we didn’t mind leaving the beautiful hotel. Although it can be all consuming at times, I have really enjoyed the selection process and have grown to love all things interior design. I practically feel like an expert at this point (or so I think)!!

It was surreal when we walked the house for the first time and observed the progress that has been made. At the same time, it was very rewarding to see the decisions we have contemplated months over put into action.  Although I’ll never be ready to lose my parents to Texas, I’m beyond excited for them and this next chapter in their new home.
