UH day at the capitol was such a good way to kick off my second month here at University of Houston. It was so great to see the students, faculty and alumni interact with the Texas legislature. Read the story and see more photos by myself and the talented @jessicaofelia - link in bio!
Been pretty quiet on the gram for a minute. Always torn if I should create a second account for some of my higher ed images, but ultimately that would just mean I would post less on both. Here are a few rectangles to show that I’ve actually been working!
A different perspective will engage your mind.
Today’s office for a couple hours. #todayslocation #onassignment #htx
This little lady got a house, a blazer and a dope new job this weekend. Couldn’t be more proud. #newyearnewmeet2
Today, Alyson and I start calling Houston, TX home. Three months ago, when we arrived home from our wonderful Korean adventure, we had no clue what the future held. We trusted that there was a plan for us and we are so grateful that we were able to spend time with friends and family while all the pieces came together. 2019 is sure to bring more changes, but for now, we are just thankful for our wonderful adventures so far. If you find yourself in Houston, let us know. Better yet, make it a point to visit.
Shoutout to the folks at @commonmotor for all that they do. I’ve been at my wits end more than once with my CL350 and of course they’ve got a video that walks me thru the process step by step. The look on my face is genuine excitement because I finally replaced my ripped diaphragms with their shiny new ones. I can’t wait to get back on the road. Also shoutout to my boy @alecporter_ for introducing me to @commonmotor!
Evenings on the Atchafalaya.
Well I guess we’ve just watched so many Christmas movies and listened to so many Christmas songs that we are subconsciously dressing very Christmas-y and December’s just barely getting started.
Happy second birthday to my little niece, Lydia. Welcome to the jungle!

Can’t seem to stay away from the old stomping grounds. Spent some time yesterday talking about past road trips and future plans. Year four is going to be an interesting one for #cordanation but navigating it together will be the best part.
Falling leaves means a new season.
Learned that today is National Louisiana Day. Seems appropriate to celebrate since we will arrive back there in a few hours.
The leaves decided to show off for our visit.
Oh, how we’ve missed you, Tennessee!
Woke up this clear morning to see a Louisiana sunrise. I’m so thankful to be able to spend few quiet moments realizing how much beauty there is in this world.
The light has been fairly moody lately as the “winter” season brings lots of intermittent rain to Southwest Louisiana. This makes for good porch chats, porch meals and well, anything porch related. It does not make for good chicken coup building weather. Bonus points if you also enjoy a tin roof pitter-patter.
Living in Asia ruined chairs for me. I do love a good desk though, so I’ll be figuring that one out.
I recently started writing again in a notebook entitled “Projects 2016.” Of course now it’s scratched out and called “Life Plans 2018.” Getting down some goals and lists on paper and it feels good. There’s a sense of determination to writing it, especially when you look at it daily.
