I live in Military City! San Antonio, Texas has been called military city for years…perhaps, even since Santa Ana’s army marched against the Alamo. At any rate, we have deep love and respect for the United States Military. I work with military wives, National Guardsmen, and students who are used to going long periods of time with a parent overseas.

Yesterday, a new survey revealed that San Antonio placed fifth on a list of the best places for retired military personnel to start a second career. The list, commissioned by USAA and Military.com and conducted by Sperling’s Best Places, includes (reported by the San Antonio Express News):
1. Oklahoma City
2. Norfolk, VA
3. Richmond, VA
4. Austin, TX
5. San Antonio, TX
6. Madison, WIS
8. Raleigh, N.C.
9. Omaha, Nebraska
10. Manchester, N.H.
So, on this Veteran’s Day, I salute the military and my home town!! Thank you for your service. You will never know how much you are esteemed and appreciated.
Have a beautiful November weekend everyone!
Shorter Days of Winter
Edited by: Collette Osuna of Statements in Fashion
With shorter days of winter on their way, many of us will spend countless hours wrapped in a warm comfy robe, our hands nestled around a cup of hot cocoa, and stalking our favorite blogs and fashion sites. What could be better than online window shopping and thoughts of Santa’s arrival in our heads?
This weeks links showcase some awesome blog posts I’d love to read on a cold winter night.
Take some time to read about Eco friendly designers, tips for pursuing a career in fashion, jewelry tricks, DIY’s, fab bloggers over forty, and more.
Have a great weekend & stay warm!
