Happy spring Katy! I for one am ready for some warmer weather, some outdoor family fun and some time and energy to tackle some of those home projects. And in this issue, we’re here to help you with all of that and more!
Now that the weather is warming, we can enjoy more time outdoors with our favorite four-legged friends, and this issue shines the spotlight on our furry family. Fort Bend PAWS is an amazing non-profit organization headed up by Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Commissioner Vincent Morales that is literally helping save the lives of our pet population. As a momma to my beloved babies Annie May and Lilly June, I have had the privilege of supporting this amazing organization from its inception. Fort Bend PAWS is leaving an indelible “pawprint” for Fort Bend County Animal Services – just see what their director, assistant director and board members share in our cover story. These two organizations are “purrfectly” caring for our precious pets.
Family outdoor fun definitely includes Annabelle’s Benefit on April 2nd at No Label Brewery. Join the van Deursen family for a 5K Run/1 Mile Walk, live music, wine pull, face painting, ice cream and more to raise money to find a cure for the GNAO1 mutation. Read all about Annabelle and her amazing family on page 10.
Spring also means it’s time to spruce up around the house. In our Home & Hearth feature, we share some great gardening tips and information on the upcoming Katy Home & Garden Show coming in March. The event also includes a Spring Gift Market all at the Katy ISD Ag Center.
Fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer said, “Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring.” That’s sage advice especially if you’re in Texas, because as y’all well know, the weather here can change in 30 minutes or less, especially in spring. Happy spring y’all – and keep a jacket in your car!
