hi hi, i’m dena. i started this blog 2+ years ago with my best friend makenzie. we love houston. we loved it so much that we started this blog about it – we still love it so much that this here blog is still up and running, growing and becoming a little bit popular if i may say so (humbly) myself. 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 we’re still best friends – but my passion for posting ran a little deeper and i am now the created of panchoandleftey. now: a little more about me. i’m a pre-school teacher at a real great nature centered/ child directed school a few minutes away from my house. i spend sunday mornings at church and sunday evenings country dancing. i’m also intrigued by social + environmental justice around my community. and traveling, i love traveling (but more than that, i love coming home). i also love things that are FREE, my favorite being, worth while events inside the 610 loop. i recently returned from an extended back-packing trip to costa rica. i got a little homesick after 2 months and attribute it to being “way too far outside of the loop for too long”. needless to say i’m happy to be home, refreshed and inspired.
