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.

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,...

June 2021 – Exclamation Points!

June Bugs For years, I heard my sweet friend Alisa Murray call the daddies of the babies she photographed June Bugs.  It is a term of endearment coined by Alisa, but in hindsight, I think it’s an incredibly appropriate name for dads, because each June is when we celebrate dads with their special day –...

May 2021 – Exclamation Points!

May Milestones –  Two of the most amazing things happen each May. My son’s birthday, and the Super Bowl of holidays for us moms:  Mother’s Day.  Of course, this May is even more special as my daughter Kassidi graduates with her Master’s Degree from our beloved University of Texas – her...

April 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Spring Shenanigans – It’s finally here – Spring! But, as we all know, it’s Spring in Texas, so don’t put up your jackets just yet. The weather here changes as often as my mood according to Mr. Kaminski. Yes, I do my part to keep him on his toes. With the gorgeous weather and COVID restrictions...

March 2021 – Exclamation Points!

Frozen Fort Bend – As we go to press with this book, it’s in the single digit temperatures in Fort Bend. We’ve gone to press during COVID, during hurricanes, during floods and now this. We’re beginning to feel like the postal service around here – neither sleet, nor snow, nor rain stops us! Of...
