I have a confession: I am a Southern girl and I do not own a pair of cowgirl boots. True story! But this is all about to change thanks to our cover girl, Michelle Manningham, and her new line of Texi Boots.

Hope. The irony is that I never fully understood the meaning of the word until I experienced hopelessness. Twenty-fifteen did not exactly end the way I had planned.

The year was 1994 and I was a mere 17 years old. I thought nothing of it when I told my parents that little white lie. Of course, they thought I was hanging out with four of my best friends but instead I went to see a girl. That white lie set the stage that would forever change my life.

At this point, in the back of your mind, summer is never ending. Your kids are having the time of their lives and you are probably oblivious to the back to school stock posted up at your local Walmart.

Not unlike a bear, I tend to hibernate throughout the winter months. I stay inside my cave just waiting for the frosted East Texas landscape to melt back into green.

As I grow older, I often wonder what kind of legacy I will leave behind. Will I even leave one? If I do, will it be one that will make my children proud?

Reality TV often shows an unflattering side of people, from “Jersey Shore” to “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” to “Teen Mom 2.” These are a far cry from family-friendly shows, so I usually steer Aiden and Aniston away from reality TV.

Summer in East Texas – how can you not love it? It's a beautiful time of year. Sure, it can be cook-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot outside, but so what! It's still a gorgeous area to call home, and we're fortunate to live in a place with so many wonderful spots to visit and things to see.

"Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots"

Oct 01 @ 01:00 pm | Tyler Museum of Art | Tyler, TX

~~One of the most highly anticipated exhibitions in recent years comes to the Tyler Museum of Art with “Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots,” open to the public Sunday, Oct. 1 through Jan. 7, 2018 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.

The exhibition, organized by the TMA, features close to 40 works by the late Pop Art icon, including a series of Warhol’s signature silkscreen prints drawn from the Cochran Collection of LaGrange, Ga., and a collection of his celebrity-centric Polaroid photographs from the Meadows Museum of American Art at Centenary College of Louisiana.

“Screen Prints & Snapshots” showcases several distinct bodies of work from the later career of Warhol, notably the silkscreen prints from the 1986 “Cowboys and Indians” he completed shortly before his death, spotlighting such iconic subjects as John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Geronimo; his 1981 Myths series, featuring touchstones of American pop culture including Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody and Superman; and selections from his “Flash,” “Flowers” and “Television” series. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Polaroids and silver gelatin prints, shot from 1958 until Warhol’s 1987 death and offering insight into his intimate relationship with his celebrity friends – Dolly Parton, Jack Nicklaus and Pia Zadora among them.

General exhibition admission is $6 for adults and $4 for seniors. Admission is free for TMA members, students, children under 12, Tyler Junior College faculty/staff and City of Tyler employees. Regular Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays and major holidays). For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit http://www.tylermuseum.org
