Now that the Rowland Texadus is complete, we’re all ready to begin the Texadventure phase of our new lives in CenTex. We’re off to find as many fun locations as possible. And, here are the first 3 Texas Hot Spots for you to check out!
Since we’re at the starting point of discovering places near and far in our new state, my plan is to add to this Hot Spots list as time goes by.
Here are the first three spots I will be reviewing (I absolutely love each of these). I’ve included the DayTripper’s “Trip Guides” for each spot for now. If you’re a Texan, check out his local PBS schedule of episodes by the town. He’s funny, informative, and a great guy.

- College Station: DayTripper’s College Station

Come back for a future Texas Tuesday to read about another 3 Texas Hot Spots and to see more about the first three. Our goal is to venture out 100 miles in each direction and write about what we find. It will be a fun project over the next year!
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
Finding a new purpose in living and joy in the day-to-day was the goal when author Kathy Rowland and her entire family (adult kids and grandkids) moved from the PNW to Texas several years ago. The focus of Quiet Hollow is to encourage ‘next chapter women’ – those who are retired, empty-nesters, or have found themselves without a spouse to jump back into life. And, she shares multiple tips, ideas, and possibilities toward that end. Kathy completed her almost 30 years as an elementary teacher and hopped into over a decade of volunteer work, side hustle-type businesses, and grandchild care before discovering her unique and fulfilling purpose for the next chapter of life. What you read on Quiet Hollow is a large part of that calling. Another part is the happy life she’s leading in Central Texas in the same neighborhood as the 3 big kids and her 5 grandkids. She and her college sweetheart husband made sure to add a pool to their new Texas home, so there are lots of noisy, splashy days in their little oasis of a backyard. Come join her on Quiet Hollow in a conversation about finding and living the life you were created to live in this later stage. The chats will be full of laughter, support, faith, and inspiration to create.
