“People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
– Maya Angelou
It is easy to find a friend who is there for you when times are good. Finding a friend that stands by you during troubled times forms a lifelong bond.
I was going through a particularly hard time in life when I first met Alison. We commiserated with one another about our recent divorces and faced single parenthood together. Along with our young girls, we went to divorce counseling, enjoyed movie nights, vacationed, and attended church together. We supported each other as we found new love and remarried. Through shared loss and common interests, we forged a strong friendship.
So when Alison and her family were relocated to Keller, Texas for work, I immediately started planning a visit to see her. A year later, my sister and I found ourselves on a plane to Dallas/Fort Worth airport for a long weekend with our dear friend. She was such a wonderful tour guide and a gracious host. Seeing her again was like coming home. We picked right up where we had left off.
In true “Alison” style, she planned out a 3-day itinerary with great care and we had a wonderful few days in the greater Dallas area. Below is a photo tour of our three days in Texas and some highlights we experienced. We absolutely loved Dallas, Fort Worth and Waco and recommend a visit for those who love southern hospitality, delicious eats, incredible shopping, and plenty of museums and entertainment. There is something here for everyone. It was sad to leave my dear friend after a few days, but now I have a great excuse to come back to Texas!
DAY 1- FORT WORTH AND STOCKYARDS

I have been selling All Inclusive vacations to the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America for 16 years now with www.allinclusiveoutlet.com. I have been fortunate enough in my life to have traveled far and wide but my appetite for travel is rather insatiable. I love to see new places, have new experiences, and in particular bodies of water really speak to me. I love to find ways to save money yet still have unique experiences. Being in the travel industry has helped fuel my passion and made it possible for me to see places I would never have seen otherwise.

Most incredible travel experience: Getting married in St. Lucia on a beachside hilltop with my family
