Goodbye 2020. Hello 2021!

Kay Garrett with new grandson Graham Todd Kiehl.

Happy New Year to all of our Brazos readers! Although 2020 proved to be a year full of unexpected challenges, my family welcomed our second grandson in December. What a blessing a new baby brings! As we wipe the slate clean and start fresh in 2021, let’s ring in the New Year with positive resolutions, hugs for our family and friends and a toast to new beginnings. Hello 2021!
