my name is dena. i started this blog almost 2 years ago with my best friend makenzie. we love houston,tx more than anything and wanted to make it public. this little baby has since become “my” little baby, which might account for the confusion of “where did her best friend go”. let me just tell you that makenzie is still around and will make VERY regular appearance on this her blog. back to dena: i’m a pre-school teacher who loves country dancing, environmental justice, and traveling. i also love things that are FREE, my favorite being worth while events inside the 610 loop. i’m currently planning an extended trip to costa rica – if you have any connections email: email@example.com.
