Around the World from Home: 2018 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

As far back as I can remember one of my favorite outdoor things to do was/is attend festivals. Growing up I looked forward to the Houston International Festival every year. The music, the food, and the cultural exposure...there’s usually always something fun to do and cool to see at festivals. Here’s a list of some cool festivals taking place in the Houston, Texas area or within driving distance of the Houston, Texas area this year. Some of these events are free and tickets to some of the events that aren’t free can be purchased at a discount on Groupon so be sure to do a little research before you plan your next adventure. #liveItUp

Day 28: What small thing that you use daily are you grateful for?

The shower. Second after writing, the shower is also very therapeutic for me. It’s where I get to enjoy alone time (well most of the time, moms know what I mean lol), relax, think and figure things out. What small thing you use every day are you grateful for?

Day 27: What natural resource are you most grateful for?

Water. We drink it, cook with it, wash with it, bathe with it and so much more. I’m grateful for all of earth’s natural resources but water especially.
