Wow! It’s been a busy few weeks! First, a big shout out to PAUL KRAFT, the best cosmetic laser tech in DFW–he is in DR. MARK DEUBER”s office. He is helping this yardbird (as my Daddy called me) REVERSE years of sun damage. From face to arms to legs, it’s a process. I’ll always want to be outdoors whenever possible but my new mantra is “Sunscreen Forever!”

And talking about a process, my longtime skin guru MYONG, the owner of HANNA ISUL SPA in Fort Worth has me on Sovas 5 products that enhance the wonderful work the lasers are doing. The Sovas 5 anti-aging serums also help reverse damage to skin.

So, for those of you who asked what my skin regimen is, there’s the answer!

Continuing in the health and beauty vein, I have always worked out. If not going to a gym, I have a treadmill, weights and kettle bells, not to mention my passion for lake activities in the spring and summer and bike riding and hiking in the fall and winter plus horseback riding year-round.

My beautiful horse Fabio and I are both taking dressage lessons from CINDY FRANCHEK at Noble Champion Stables in Cedar Hill. Talk about a workout–both physical and mental! My gal pal and nationally-known nature, wildlife and pet photog JOANIE WHITE took this pic of my boy. He’s a Rocky Mountain Gaited Horse and a real sweetheart!

On the “Designing Texas” TV SHOW front, you really should pay a visit to THE HILLS OF KINGSWOOD in FRISCO if you are contemplating a new home. The showhomes by CHRISTIAN CUSTOM HOMES, RON DAVIS CUSTOM HOMES and C. MIKE JONES are now open and will take your breath away. You will be amazed by the craftsmanship and the views! Ask for SHARON WEBB at the guardhouse.

TONY VISCONTI and BRUCE RUSSO are updating us on their various building projects and CAROLINE KRADDICK will be back after the first of the year with her “IN THE KRADDICK KITCHEN” series. Meantime I will be in the kitchen in December with one of my favorite all-time celebrity chefs!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Not only for the food, but the camaraderie of friends and family–and DALLAS COWBOYS FOOTBALL. It’s also the perfect time to take stock and count our blessings. Nothing beats “An Attitude of Gratitude!” This month, and, in effect, all year long, I’m grateful for YOU!
