Always with a positive attitude and kindness along the way.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’ll say a little bit of Authentic Mexican food to start our day! Visiting El Tiempo Cantina On Navigation. Follow with a bit of shopping on Rice Village District. Next stop visiting a few murals near Downtown Houston. Ending the night at Kemah BoardWalk for some delicious seafood and a calming walk near the beach.
