Praying for those from my home state who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. I thank God for my family in southeast Texas, especially those who were airlifted and rescued. Your resilience is so inspiring. God bless!! #TexasStrong

This past May my marketing team and I joined an organization that hires mentally challenged individuals who seed and plant flowers and vegetables for use by Farm to Fork local restaurants. One of our volunteer projects was to plant a sunflower dial. I recently had a chance to return to see the results. AMAZING!!!
