Howdy. My name is Debbie. I was born and raised in central Texas near Austin and slowly migrated south via College Station, finally settling in Houston. I am a registered nurse by profession and work in the Houston Medical Center. I am wife to my husband, Dave, and mother to two furry children, Nugget and Shogun.
Being a nurse, I spend a majority of my time writing brief incomplete sentences using a lot of abbreviations and acronyms in medical records. I am by no means a storyteller, wordsmith, or grammar Nazi. So bear with my novice blogging skills.
As a native Texan, I love my state. It’s the best in the union! I absolutely love Houston. It’s not a tourist attraction but it has good employment opportunities, low cost of living, friendly people, great food, a variety of activities, cultural diversity, and lots of parks and green spaces.
I enjoy photography, gardening, animals, and nature in general. I created this site primarily to share my gardening exploits and failures, crafting attempts, my favorite parks and places to visit, and the general awesomeness of my home city and state.
