What a great August! JR and I spent a week in San Diego at Mission Beach with a group of great friends from Rice and then headed to Cincinnati for a long visit with my parents and a couple of fun afternoons at the Western & Southern Open. (And my friend Jennifer joined us there for a day too! The tennis was fantastic; we saw: Novak, Stan, Andy, Nadal, Grigor Dmitrov, Ivo Karlovic, Andrea Petkovic, Simona Halep, Ana Ivanovic, Vika Azarenka, Caroline Wozniacki, Nick Kygrios, Jack Sock, Vasek Pospisil, Camila Giorgi and more!)

As fun as these trips have been, we’re ready to be home for a while after a summer full of travel. Time to catch up on Hard Knocks and the rest of our summer TV shows. And of course we’re looking forward to football season, weekend trips to Houston for Rice home games, and the fall tennis.
