The special needs mom shares her favorite shops, writers and places to go in Dallas with her family.


Fun With the Family 

“We love walking our three dogs (Brenda, Bruce and Radley) and eating at Mi Cocina in Lakewood—they have always been so kind to us.”

Mi Cocina // 6332 La Vista Drive, Dallas (more DFW locations)

Self-Care Strategy

“Yoga has been a great coping strategy. I also love hanging out with friends and family and reading.”

Writers She Reads 

“Anything Glennon Doyle, any book that has a funny or interesting way of looking at life, and short stories. I also love anything Prudence Mackintosh.”

Retail Therapy 

“I love to shop. My favorite stores are Ann Mashburn, J.Crew online and of course, I love Yves Delorme.”

J.Crew // Multiple locations
Yves Delorme // 4244 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas; 2959 Crockett St., Fort Worth

Couple Time 

“Michael and I are such homebodies. We love to visit nurseries like Nicholson-Hardie and garden together. We’re always doing something with the yard. We put in a pool this summer and it’s been a lifesaver.”
