Howdy, Welcome to Dallas, Texas!
Happy New Year
Ready or not, 2019 is here. Stay tuned for more articles coming soon.
Dallas Icons, Dallas Decades
There’s some sadness in our history, and every day, Dallas welcomes folks who want to learn more about this city where President John F Kennedy was assassinated. But our history is much more than one story. We’ve got nostalgic places from every decade, and some very special businesses from each of those eras that are still going strong. We embrace our history, but we’re not stuck in the past.
I love the iconic places and long-running businesses and attractions in Dallas. I’ll share a few with you and throw in a few fun stories like how the neon-red, mythological Pegasus became a symbol of the city of Dallas. For decades, this particular neon sign flew from one of the tallest buildings in downtown Dallas. As a kid, I’d watch for it to come into view anytime my family headed toward Dallas from my hometown of Grand Prairie.
I’ve collected a few pics of Pegasus symbols and art pieces you can find in and around Dallas. Stay tuned for more pics and stories behind this great Dallas icon.
Trying Something New
There are a couple of reasons I call myself “just me” in Big D, one of which is that I enjoy doing things on my own. Yep, it’s true. I eat alone, go to movies alone, travel alone – no shame and no loneliness. Being a party of one lets me pursue happiness and the joy of the moment at my own pace, which is very important to me.
But I’m aware that comfort zones can drastically hold people back, so I’m making a conscious effort to step out of mine. Keep an eye out here and follow my social media to see me having fun with others and teaming up for some collaboration.
If you are part of a couple – romantic partners, bffs, dude-bros, siblings, business owners – whatever kind of couple you are – I’d like to invite you to join me as I find the fun in Big D and around DFW. We’ll pick a place, we’ll hang out, I’ll share your story. Sound interesting? Contact me and let me know!
where to find me
In Big D
I was born in Dallas and have lived in the DFW “metroplex” most of my life. I love Dallas and its suburbs. I’ll be posting about places of interest in Dallas “proper” and the surrounding areas.
Around Denton County
Right now, I live in Denton County. On my Instagram and Facebook, you’ll see lots of places in Denton, Corinth, Flower Mound, and Lewisville. My day job is in Las Colinas, so you’ll see a some reports from Irving too. I’m sure I’ll be in Dallas again before too long, but I have to say, all the cities in DFW have their charms!
