It started as a blog ~ It morphed into an identity.

Mrs. Padilly's Bad Hair DayMy life as Mrs. Padilly and Donna Marie intertwine together, past and present, combining my worlds of design, art, travel, and storytelling through the pen and lens of Mrs. Padilly.

I’m a creative professional, and from 1995 to 2011, I taught visual communications at a college in the Houston, Texas area.

In 2012, I launched MrsPadillys.com and began blogging about Texas Travel under the pen name Mrs. Padilly. In 2014, I became interested (almost obsessed) with glamping and vintage trailer makeovers, so I started my second blog,  MrsPadillysTravels.com, to focus less on travel and more on glamping.

In addition to being the content creator for my social media, I also serve as the digital marketing manager for a local Texas business.

Living creatively is a way of life for me, and MrsPadillys.com is my fun little thread on the web to share my latest art, photography, travel, and writing projects. 

But BIG change came to the Padilly household in the fall of 2019, when the Padilly’s moved to Florida. For years I’ve been known as Mrs. Padilly the Texas travel writer, now I’m having to rebrand myself as a Floridian.

It was obvious that one of the first things I had to change was my Texas Padilly logo.

I will miss my Texas logo, but I’m sure the sunshine will grow on me.

Thank you for stopping by, and I’d be thrilled if you would follow along — it’s always nicer to travel with friends.

Happy Trails,
Mrs. Padilly
