About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

St. Vincent’s School Chess Club


Aleck found an old chess board a few weeks ago and started playing around with the pieces.  I don’t play chess, so I couldn’t teach him.  Luckily, the St. Vincent’s School Chess Club just started and he was so excited to join.  We are so privileged to have Dr. Alexey Root as an instructor.  She has written six books, and won the U.S. women’s championship in 1989.

Aleck is obsessed with “castling”, whatever that is.  He was reading instructions from the chess game in the car one day.  He was asking me questions and I said, “Aleck, Mommy doesn’t know how to play chess.”  He replied, “That’s OK Mom.  I’ll teach you.”  I love my sweet little man.
