January/February – Exclamation Points!

New Year and New Beginnings!

Kay Garrett with her new grandson Canon James Kiehl.

Happy 2019 Brazos readers! It’s a New Year of new beginnings, new traditions and resolutions. For me it will definitely be new beginnings and traditions as our family welcomed a precious grandson in 2018. Our holidays were more magical and childlike as new traditions and celebrations began. I’m not big on setting resolutions personally, but if you have set some resolutions, here are some tips to help you achieve them. Keep a journal, be more productive, stop procrastinating and always have more fun and go on more adventures!

Have you visited Richmond or Rosenberg’s Historic Downtowns lately? If not, you are really missing out. Both historical districts are flourishing with unique boutiques, restaurants, wine bars, antique shops, art galleries, quaint event venues and more. They are both charming and filled with a storied history. If you haven’t made a trip to see what’s going on, check out our new absolutely! Historic Downtown pages. I hope you will be inspired to take a venture downtown in 2019!

To help your kids shine and be their best in the new year, our absolutley! Kid Friendly section has some amazing resources to help you find the perfect school. Check out the many options available in our area starting on page 12.

Last month the Richmond State Supported Living Centers’ (RSSLC) Project Noel was highlighted. This month our Hometown Heroes page highlights two outstanding community volunteers from RSSLC. They have both volunteered in the RSSLC country store for over 57 years together. Check out our Hometown Heroes to read their amazing story. You will be inspired to serve!

We are looking forward to 2019 with our Brazos community and hope to make it our best yet! We love highlighting people, places and happenings in our area. If you have something you would like to share, please email me.

Happy New Year to all of our advertisers, readers and Brazos community! I look forward to seeing you out and about in Brazos!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
