Fall Favorites

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, and this fall, we are sharing some of the most exciting news ever! In 2009, I met one of my favorite people. I loved him, I loved his food, I loved his faith, I loved his family. I loved him and his passion for food and community so much, I put him on the cover of Fort Bend Focus, even though he protested that he wasn’t ready.  Well, he got ready, because I wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.  Fast forward nine years, and my dear friend has accomplished so much, but nothing as exciting as what he achieved last month. In August, Chef Reynold Darthard won First Place in H-E-B’s Quest for Texas Best competing against nearly 900 companies from across the state! In 2019, you will be able to buy his amazing cheesecakes in H-E-B’s everywhere, and friends, I could not be prouder of our Sugar Land superstar! Read all about his sweet success on page 26.

Speaking of Sugar Land superstars, there’s an all-star lineup of top notch orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine with the drafting of two new prominent surgeons – just in time for back to school sports. Michael Kent, M.D. and Thomas Rivers, M.D. have joined the Methodist team rounding out their roster of comprehensive orthopedics and sports medicine care physicians all close to home. Now I call that a fan favorite!

Another favorite of mine this time of year is decorating for the season. I’ve already put the football wreath on our front door, and you know it’s a University of Texas wreath since both of my hearts now reside in Austin. In our Home Is Where the Heart Is section, you’ll find some great ideas on decorating and turning your house into your dream home. Check it out!

Happy fall y’all, and go Longhorns!

Stay focused!
