Fun at the Christmas Market!
The Drive Across Texas crew stopped in at the Coleman Jr. High Christmas Market in Waxahachie, Texas in search of a story, new friends and of course some fabulous #Christmas goodies!
My partner in crime fo the day...sporting our #Santahats from Celestial Creations!
We had such a great time meeting so me many precious folks and hearing their stories. A huge shout out to Mrs. Kim Kriejal and all the hard work she puts into this event every year! Do you know she's been doing it for 28 years! #Wowza The cause, the peoples, the treasures. #priceless
Here's Mrs. Kim & I trying to grab a quick #photo in midst of the crowd! Don't #laugh!
Y'all I knew that the Christmas Market was for a good cause, but I have to say that I was blown away by the depth and compassion that Mrs. Kim and her team puts into this. #soprecious #suchablessing #shiningtheirlight
We had a blast chatting and talking with so many people! Oh my the goodies that were on display! It's always such a blessing to find something handmade and they were really everywhere!
I was excited to see some #goodfriends while I was browsing all the booths! Mrs. Celeste Holmes with her #embroidery #gifts was there. Check her out on #Facebook and #Instagram @celestialcreations - she makes custom orders as well!

I'll go ahead and admit it...this sweet lady might have been my favorite! She had a booth called #CreatedbyKids and literally everything at her booth was put together by the kids in her #LifeSkills class at #MeridianHighSchool. What a #blessing she has been to so many over the years and boy did I have a blast choosing special goodies for #Memaw, #AuntRuby and others. #TouchingLives
