You may not realize it, but one of the best times of year to head to the beaches in Galveston is November. The crowds are gone. The traffic is placid. The surf is endless and beautiful, and you don't have to share it with everyone and her sister.
This year, I'm breaking away from November grading for a few days to take in the Texas Art Education Association's annual conference. Erin's Dream Lanyards was chosen as this year's Art and Soul philanthropic project ,and I'm totally excited to take all of our lanyards and other beaded items to share with some of the most wonderful, talented, and energetic people in the state. That it happens to be at Moody Gardens in Galveston is just icing on the cake. That we are helping them celebrate their 50 Year Anniversary is like adding a double scoop of ice cream along side.
