Ideas for day trips or activities to do if you are in the area

Spring at the Silos Event

Never could I have imagined that several of my favorite creative women from around the country were going to unite in a town near Dallas. Leave it to Joanna Gaines to make it happen! She invited over 100 artisans to set up booths for Spring at the Silos, an event at Magnolia filled with shopping, music, yoga and great food.


Fall to-do List

Fall To-Do ListWithout a doubt, fall is my favorite time of year. As a child, some of my favorite events were watching football games with the family, creating “haunted trails” in the woods to scare the other neighborhood kids, and visiting the pumpkin patch. Those memories and traditions create a nostalgic feeling that I still embrace. As an adult, I find myself enjoying many similar activities, as well as some new ones.


Day Trip to Magnolia Market

Tips for visiting Magnolia Market of Fixer Upper || Joyfully So

Between their incredible talent for home design and carefree sense of humor, Chip and Joanna Gaines have captured the hearts of America through their show, Fixer Upper. Visiting the Gaines’ store, Magnolia Market, has been at the top of my day trip list. Waco is nestled approximately 90 minutes between Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin. For those on long I-35 road trips, it makes for the perfect pit stop to stretch your legs as it’s only a few minutes off the interstate.
