Are you feeling the urge to self-inventory and create a "new you" list for 2018?  Here's a suggestion, take time to get out and have fun! If it's permission you're looking for, then I freely give it.  If it's the ability to carve out extra time, then you're on your own. I struggle with that too. But don't you hate that feeling of finding out after the fact there was something fantastic going on right in your own backyard, and you missed it?  That, I can help you with. Check out these events below or visit our website for more - Be sure to tag us on those photos!  #VisitIrving  And don't forget to bundle up 'cause baby it's cold (and possibly icy) out there.
