    If we keep our fingers crossed, maybe Spring will officially be on its way. The

    snow, rain, cold weather, and more snow can be long gone! It is the time of year

    Texans can truly enjoy before the summer heat hits. With the new weather, we

    all feel ready to shed our winter coat. Springtime gets everyone in the mood

    to have a pedicure, pull out sandals, shorts, and capris-- and everything else that

    comes with a new season.

    That feeling of newness was the inspiration behind this issue. We wanted to

    bring you a special section called VIVA GLAM. East Texas has a lot to offer!

    There are many great services, fun places to shop, new procedures on the market,

    and more for our readers!

    Have fun playing out in the beautiful weather, taking spring photos, pulling out

    your spring wardrobe, and most of all, making memories on your Journey!

    Happy Spring!

    home tourSusan & Terry Morgan/ Your Home

    T The beautiful home of Susan and Terry Morgan overlooks the Crown Colony golf course. It is on a wonderful piece of property sprinkled with pine trees. The home is a combination of Susan and Terrys personalitya little

    rustic, yet traditional. Their home is a balance between French and Hill Country

    Design. Scott and Strong were the architects with a staffed interior designer.

    McClesky Enterprise was the builder for the home.

    The home includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, with a Media Room, a Trophy

    Room, a Scrapbook Room, a Butlers Pantry, and a three door detached garage.

    The Morgans home is floored with a unique style large planked wood floor in the

    main living areas and has crown molding throughout its interior spaces. Some

    special details are cedar posts and handmade arched truss on the back of the house.

    Another beautiful feature to the home is the use of wood doors as windows in the

    main living area; this is a beautiful addition to the setting of the home.

    The Morgans spent a lot of time planning every inch of the home and the details

    are what make this home special.

    Keeping Fiber in your DietFiber is one of the most important aspects of the human diet. With that being said, many people do

    not consume the recommended amounts of fiber in their daily diets. When fiber is regularly eaten

    as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, soluble fiber has been shown to help lower

    blood cholesterol and may also help reduce the risk of diabetes and colon and rectal cancer. The

    American Heart Association recommends that you eat at least 35-30 grams of dietary fiber each

    day. The more calories you require to meet your daily needs, the more dietary fiber you need. Try

    to eat at least 14 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories you consume.

    To determine how many calories you need to consume each day, visit and

    create your MyPyramind plan. This will help you to create a healthier diet and lifestyle, as well

    as help you to see how many grams of fiber you need to consume each day.

    **It is very important to drink at least 8 oz. of water each day, especially when increasing your

    fiber intake.
