This summer, I took a class at the University of Houston Law Center on Human Trafficking. Each week, different speakers would present their area of work as part of the fight against modern-day slavery. The course opened my eyes to these crimes against humanity as well as to the large network of organizations all working together to fight this growing problem.
This September is Houston’s 6th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Month, during which the Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition, along with many community partners, is hosting a variety of events. These events serve as a way to spread awareness and to inform the community on how it can help take a stand against human trafficking globally, and in our area.
Take a few minutes to inform yourself by looking around the Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition website, or attend an event. For more information, visit: http://www.houstonrr.org/htam-events/

Those who know me know that I watch Carina during most days, rather than place her with a babysitter or in daycare. While I am blessed to have the ability to do so, I found myself using it as an excuse not to exercise.
After discussing the issue (i.e., complaining) with my mom, she found the perfect solution – Baby Boot Camp Katy!
Not only did I get a fantastic workout, I also connected with an amazing group of like-minded moms and dads.
The owner, Maria Gorosito, is knowledgeable and encouraging. She and the other trainers make sure that class is different each day, while suggesting modifications for each person’s ability level.
Baby Boot Camp is a one-hour interval training class that incorporates strength training, cardio, yoga, and core work.
Carina loves doing drills with me and enjoys being outside. I love that she is learning that it’s fun to be fit!
Baby Boot Camp provides an effective fitness regimen, a supportive environment, and a way to spend time with your kid(s).
Exercise modifications can be made for pregnant women, new moms, and active moms who are ready for an additional challenge.
My family enjoys coming together and trying all types of foods. We often visit different Mediterranean-style restaurants and recently took home dinner from the Phoenicia Specialty Foods Market on Westheimer Road. What a fantastic, fun place to shop!
Not only is there a wide selection of meats, cheeses, and produce, but they also have a beautiful bakery section that includes everything from chocolate chip cookies to eclairs to several types of baklava.
Phoenicia offers many hard-to-find food items from different countries and boasts an extremely large and unique selection of grains, beans and spices.
Their fresh-baked pita and 10-grain bread lasted the whole week for sandwiches and morning toast.
Jonathan ate pita with delicious homemade labne for breakfast several days in a row!
