It's a great opportunity. It fulfills my dormant hope of returning to Texas and we're super excited about it.

Abram Joseph Gonzales is the name of our newborn son. But for the first 24 hours of his life, his name was "Baby Boy." We had 9 months to decide on a name for him, but apparently that wasn’t enough time. We looked at thousands of names, even weird names from other countries. Some of the [...]
