Well, to be honest, I never really left. It’s more like I haven’t stopped by in a while. A long while.
Blame it on my Glampy-Campy Artsy-Crafty Lifestyle and Travel blog, MrsPadillysTravels.com, which has kept me glamping, camping, remodeling, and traveling since I launched the site back in 2014.
Well change is in the air, and Mrs. Padilly will soon realize her destiny, which you can read more about in my updated “About” page.
In the meantime, I will be using the next couple weeks to visit the blogs of bloggers I got to know in years past, and look forward to discovering more!

As you approach the start of the loop, you come across the old abandoned mining town you see in the photo. Read More
Enchanted Rock State Park, Fredericksburg, Texas
One of my favorite hikes in Texas is to the top of Enchanted Rock, the star attraction at Enchanted Rock State Park near Fredericksburg, Texas.
In this image, we are standing at the Geodetic Survey Reference Mark at the top of the rock.
C-Horse Anchored on Lake Conroe, Texas
It’s somewhat ironic that water is my inspiration since, at the age of five, they pulled my lifeless body from a lake and revived it; my first breath causing a horrible pain to shoot through my body, which I can recall to this day.
I’ve had a few close calls with water since, but it truly is my inspiration, in all its forms: Read More
Campsite at Bastrop State Park, Texas, showing burnt section just behind our trailer
At first glance it might seem this campsite, full of tall Loblolly pines, was merged in the editing room with a photo of a forest destroyed by some unknown force, but there is no photo editing going on. Read More
