Hello, I'm Miranda. Twenty-seven, married, mom of one boy (expecting another shortly) and currently settling into a new life with my family here in West Texas. I'm a former-event-planner-turned-commercial-casting-company-employee who is now pursuing happiness at home, the joys of photography, and my ever-changing role as the queen of my castle. I started this blog to not only document my own family's adventures in Abilene, our new home, but also to encourage my local peers to get out there and explore what our city has to offer.
