How was your summer?
Coming back from a break to kick off season 4, Em & Aim catch up about what they’ve missed and what new experiences they’ve had while taking a summer break. Emily has been a traveling fiend, taking on stateside travel and jetting across the globe to Scotland and France. She’s also taken on a new role of Facilities Chair at the Fort Bend History Association. Aimee did some traveling of her own to Mexico and California. Aimee’s also been involved in lots of happenings at Blockhouse, including a new social media show, Aimee and Cody Do Coffee.
“This year, we have been really, really blessed with just a fantastic year of growth. Blockhouse keeps seeing new customers come in. It’s just amazing. Cody and I are everyday in awe at how new people are finding us and our community is growing.” – Aimee
What’s coming up in Fort Bend county?
Lots of fun events and changes are coming to Fort Bend and Richmond. Vintage Hope, friends of the show, have grown into Pomp & Circumstance Boutique. Family Style, next door to Pomp, will be hosting a Christmas event on November 2nd. On November 9th, Fort Bend Museum will be hosting Bites & Brew with local food and beverage vendors. Also at Fort Bend Museum, Candlelight Tours will be taking place in December. Speaking of holiday celebrations, Richmond’s Christmas Community Walk will be held on December 1st in Downtown Richmond.
“So, if you haven’t driven by the Fort Bend Museum, it’s become quite grand. We got new landscaping going in. We are getting it all beautiful, because we have a lot of events coming up on the property that I’m very excited to share with you all.” – Emily
