Hidden Gardens Fort Worth Tour

     My good friend I've known since 6th grade and I had a wonderful time exploring Hidden Gardens Fort Worth Tour this Sunday.  As we caught up on our latest events in our lives we ventured down winding steps to view cascading waterfalls flowing down a steep cliff.  I was raised in Fort Worth so I've always admired the majestic homes above the hilltops viewing the Zoo and the historic streets of Ryan Place.  The homes made use of every available space on the hillside to plant blooming flora all year round.  The fragrance of the blooming azaleas, roses and hydrangeas took your your breath away.  I wanted to breath in the day filled with catching up with a good friend and viewing God's nature in full bloom.  Thank you to the people of the Hidden Gardens Tour for opening your homes so we could view the gardens of graceful beds, smell the ultra fragrant Lemon Balm Honeysuckle, as we walked under the canopy of majestic Oak Trees.

Check out link on the travel page on Cnn.  My picture of Venice, Italy was published under the travel log,
Fusion Journeys.  Great pictures from all over the world.

The article is about a journey which inspired you.  I talked about my recent trip to Venice and how it inspired me to write a children's book called, Venice The Birthplace of Global Trade.

OU Graduation From Price School of Business 2012

Great advice was given at my sons graduation ceremony from the University of Oklahoma's Price  College of Business.  The speaker said live your life with dignity and pride and stay true to yourself.  Success can be measured in different ways on our life's journey.  Success may be opening up a bakery, being a good mother and father, or buying your first home.  Thank you OU for giving my son a great education with a double major in management and economics.  My dad graduated from the same school in law many years ago.  My ninety year old mom lived her dream when she could see Alex walk down the aisle and have his diploma handed to him.  Many proud parents were in the audience as they watched their son or daughter be recognized for the achievement of staying the path and completing all the requirements, including Calculus to graduate from the wonderful college of Price School of Business.

OU Mother's Day Graduation at Ninety

They are asking for stories on CNN I Report for your best Mothers Day Memory.  I chose to tell about the Mother's Day coming up because my son will be graduating from OU with a double major in Economics and Business.  He graduated on time in four years so we are very proud of him.  My ninety year old mom will see Alex graduate so her wish has come true.  Check out the article.
