Changing It Up

Change is good. I must admit; however, I have to keep reminding myself of that particular philosophy. Last month when we sprang forward an hour, my internal clock was off for at least a week. Change was not in my favor, but I adopted the words of Maya Angelo and persevered. “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

So, I now spring forward with a new attitude, but some things do remain the same. Like clockwork, each April our kids ask us the following question: What are we doing for summer vacation? You would think by now – knowing the query was coming – we would have a definitive answer prepared, but alas, the question always prompts much in depth and at times, heated, discussion. There have been many summers when traveling our great state was our vacation, and Texas never disappoints. This summer, Texas has so many options, and we are sharing a few in Texas Road Trips on page 50. And remember, while you are out and about on vacation this summer, be sure to take a picture and send it to us. We’d love to hear about your family vacay.

If sticking close to home is more your speed this year, we can help. From The Lone Star Stomp for history lovers to the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair for food lovers to Deacon’s Stars and Stripes Softball Classic for our friends who like to play ball, there’s plenty going on in our area this month. We hope to see you while we are out and about enjoying all that our amazing community has to offer.

Speaking of change, take a look at our new format for our Seen on the Scenes starting on page 26. Yes, Fort Bend friends, change is good.  Happy Spring!

Stay focused,
