On Christmas we went out and tried something new to us. We went to SoupLeaf Hot Pot, and figured our way through the meal. It was great!
We have been reflecting on this last year and all the things we have gone through. Starting it very hopeful that we were going a good direction with the shop. To the ice storm and very quickly having to shut down. James went back to school. And at the company Christmas party they announced his promotion to Lead Customer Service. Rachel got a promotion to Property Manager(from Assistant) as well. So different from where we were a year ago and while we still keep touch a bit through social media, boarding our regulars in our home, and those who stop by Home Depot and visit with James, it's you, our customers, friends, and even former employees that we miss the most and are most appreciative to. You have helped us become the people we are today.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Feeding the birds.
I make some version of this mix fresh every day for my conures, ringnecks and quakers. Ingredients vary day to day, season to season. Sometime frozen veggies are added too.
Picture 1:Greens, strawberries, blueberries and carrots
Picture 2: Fresh sprouts, sliced almonds, a couple fresh goji berries, red pepper flakes
Picture 3: veggie and berries chopped in blender. Some of this is put aside for the box turtles as well.
Picture 4: everything is stirred together and fresh oregano added. Sometimes its dried or other herbs are added.

James graduated the ACC Certified Production Technician training class yesterday! Now we have to revise his resume and get those applications in to some of the companies that came to visit during the class.

Since Rachel has been working the jewelry booth in Guero's parking lot, we took advantage of our ideal parking spot and had dinner there last night. It was the first time we had eaten there since we had moved the shop off of Congress. Yum!

A funny thing happened on the way to Law School...

Back in 1983, James was studying at UT to become a lawyer, and working at a fish shop to finance his aquarium habit. One thing led to another and he graduated with a business degree and after managing one shop, and working as an on-the-road salesman for a manufacturer of aquarium supplies, he bought Rivers & Reefs Pet Center in downtown Round Rock in 1989. After a couple moves, including the big one to South Austin, Rachel joined the store in 2003, having already worked at a fish importer & distributor for a few years.

Together they have worked on expanding Rivers & Reefs level of expertise, dropping reef aquariums, but picking up hand-fed companion birds, locally raised reptiles, and knowledge and experience with cats, dogs, and small animals.
