San Antonio River Parade, Thank You, & New Blog Design

San Antonio River Parade

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Besides my boredom issues on Thanksgiving Day, I had a nice weekend. Friday night I went out with my brother, Jarrett, his girlfriend, Kate, and Dr. Mark. We had a great Italian dinner on the Riverwalk and watched the Christmas Parade on the river.




If you're not familiar with San Antonio, there is a mall that wraps around one end of the Riverwalk. My sister designed the mall Christmas decorations. Aren't they great?

The parade sounds like such a great time and what a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit! That is amazing that your sister designed the decorations. They’re very pretty. Speaking of pretty, I love the headband you’re wearing in the 1st photo. You look great.

Congrats on all of the awards and pink Christmas decorations make me happy too. I’d love to find some cute new one’s for the tree this year!

The new Christmas design looks great. Danielle is awesome!

Our anniversary is Dec 21 and we would always drive down from Austin to spend a night on the Riverwalk for one night (very romantic). I love S.A. during Christmas!

Your new blog design is very festive and fun.
