May Madness

For years I have professed that the months of May and December are by far the busiest and most hectic months of the year.  In our house, it has just always worked out that way.  By June 1st and January 1st, I let out a collective sigh of relief and vow to take a minute of much needed R and R.  And...

Defining – or Defying – Normal

“Back to normal” has become such a subjective term.  I’m not entirely certain what it means, and honestly, I’m not a big proponent of normal.  I tend to subscribe to the adage, “I tried to be normal once – worse two minutes of my life.” But I must confess, the past few weeks have felt like...

Spring Soirees

Spring has finally arrived, and in Fort Bend, that means it’s time to get out and about and enjoy everything our community has to offer. A huge opportunity for our community this month is a birthday party!  Celebrating a huge milestone this month – 40 years of changing young mens’ lives through...

Love and Madness

It’s Valentine’s Day my friends, and as Tina would say, “What’s love got to do with it?” Well, an awful lot if you forget February 14th because my beaus, you will be sorely lacking in the love category if Saint Valentine sails by without the appropriate amount of fanfare.  So, gentlemen, consider...

What’s New in 2022?

Publisher, Patti Parish-Kaminski – It’s finally here – a new year.  I for one thought 2021 would never be in our rearview mirror, but I am certainly glad that it is!  While we were – and still are – dealing with serious issues on a global scale, I feel optimistic that we are indeed making...

December 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Out with the Old – In with the New –  It’s definitely the most wonderful time of the year, and for the first time in a long time, it truly feels like that.  As our community and our world strives to get back to normal, I see that we are making great progress. That’s what keeps me as a...

November 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Fall, Festivities and Philosophies – Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year, and around here, fall really doesn’t begin until November. Now I know what the calendar says, but I also know what the temperature gauge says, and in my book, fall in Texas starts in November. This issue is full of fall...

October 2021 – Exclamation Points!

What’s on Your Fall Calendar?  There’s a slight chill in the air, and I for one am ready for all things fall. Football, community events, holidays – they are all on my calendar this month. What about your calendar? Have you been to FortBendFocus.com lately to see what’s going on in our community? We...

September 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Summing Up September  At our house, September marks the beginning of The University of Texas football season and back to school.  But this year, I only have one baby in school, and I embarked on my very last back to school shopping spree. It was a bittersweet time, and yes, Kolton ended up with unnecessary...

Summer 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Freedom for the Ages – It’s been said what a difference a day makes. Well, what a difference a year makes when comparing this summer to last summer. We’ve shed – for the most part – the one item we learned to never leave home without.  I don’t care what American Express says about,...
