Living in a small town can have its perks (like avoiding the city traffic), and one that we take advantage of every year is the Christmas lights in the park. I drive through the Granbury town square every morning before the sun comes up, and for the month of December, my drive gets a little brighter as I drive by the lights and decorations that are set up!
A couple weekends ago, Tommy and I headed out to San Francisco for a last-minute trip to see his family. Unfortunately the reason’s weren’t the best, as his grandfather isn’t doing very well right now. We got to spent time with his aunt and uncles who live in the area, and see his grandparents, so it was a really special trip.
Our small town has quite a few festivals throughout the year, and a couple weekends ago was the Harvest Moon Festival. There were country singers, food vendors, mini ponies for the kids, and lots of people set up to sell their artwork; Tommy and I had a great time walking around and chowing down on some Texas BBQ! The festival was held at our town square, which is home to the old Granbury Theatre. Since I was wearing a monochrome back and while outfit, I fit in perfectly with the Theatre entrance, and naturally had to take photos there.
July was a pretty good month for deal-hunting, I must say. Let’s start with Goodwill: a few weeks ago, I walked away with a gorgeous 100% leather crop top for $8, which I’m still trying to figure out how exactly to wear, but I just couldn’t leave it there. I stopped by again this week after work, and there was so many great things! I came home with a super soft LOFT sweatshirt (that is currently in the wash) for lounging, a blush Vince Camuto sweater for work ($4), and my favorite, a Bella Dahl chambray top for $4 (pardon the wrinkles, as it hasn’t been washed yet). We have a great little boutique on the Granbury square that carries these shirts, and I’ve been wanting one for a while, but couldn’t justify spending $130. Being patient pays off!
