Texas has always had a special place in my heart. It’s a love story that began in 1961, long before I fell in love with the tiny town of Round Top. I lived in Texas as a child and learned all about life and love in this great state. My mother taught me a strong and nurturing love of home—she kept a happy home and always made sure it was functional and still beautiful. My father led by example and taught me to work hard every single day at something worth doing. My older sister taught me to be my own person, always try new things, and think outside the box. And the addition of a baby brother made our life in Texas even brighter.
With each trip to Texas I am flooded with memories and lessons from a Texas childhood. I am so happy and grateful that I have such a strong foundation for a business I love and for what Old Glory has become. Texas is a place where I am inspired, energized, supported, and completely immersed in my craft. My business brought me back to Texas, and I feel like I’ve come home.
