Kellye Hancock and Dad

A Time to Remember

I refer to my Daddy as one of the last of the great “good ‘ole boys.” Farmer, rancher, prayed the same prayer before every meal, always wore Wranglers and a hat, and had very gentlemanly manners. A John Wayne type. Daddy had a fierce work ethic and was always willing to help anyone fix anything. … Continue Reading

“Fun and Interesting”

“Daddy’s home!” …and whoosh I was making my way to the mudroom, dropping whatever I was in the middle of, to welcome my father home with a hug! While this is no longer a daily occurrence, it comes to mind frequently because it holds a very special place in my heart, as it is just … Continue Reading

The Kitchen Fairy

Mothers have “a way of being” that speaks directly to our souls.  There’s a special way in which they communicate their love, support, and knowledge with us.  In my experience, my mother communicated much through her work in the kitchen.  Growing up I always remember the kitchen as a place where my mother served up … Continue Reading

Ain’t No Hood Like Motherhood!

Mom’s Me Time

I look up to my Mom; she raised two kids, ran a dance studio for 18 years, volunteered with PTA and other school functions, has been married to my Dad for 38 years and continues to love us like nobody’s business! I have so many memories with my Mom, especially driving to the dance studio … Continue Reading

Cutting Out the Noise

For about six months last year, Phillip and I would sleep with ear plugs. Not because of barking dogs, or because one of us snores, but because our air conditioning was so loud that it could wake you from the deepest of sleeps. And as expected, last October, it finally died. Thankfully we were prepared … Continue Reading

Stuck at Home? Piece of Cake!

So, this month’s letter was supposed to be all about Hindsite’s birthday. In the year 2020, Hindsite 20/20 is turning…30! And we had a whole epic party planned! But like so many other occasions this spring, the celebration is postponed. It is admittedly a strange time for everyone. So many of us find ourselves largely homebound, balancing work, family, … Continue Reading

Staying Connected

This month’s letter falls at a time in our lives that likely none of us have ever experienced before. The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 has altered the way we live our lives and interact with others. March has become a time of closures, cancellations and social distancing. The impact of this epidemic reaches us all in different ways: … Continue Reading

Something Sweet to Look Forward To

All birthdays are worth celebrating, but some years are extra special. My 30th birthday party, for example, was one for the books and had me smiling with delight! You know what else makes me grin from ear to ear? Knowing that this year marks Hindsite’s 30th birthday! For the last 30 years, Hindsite has provided a very unique offering … Continue Reading

High-Stakes Holidays

Happy New Year! I hope your 2020 is off to a great start. I certainly can’t complain, having just returned from a trip to Taos, New Mexico with my family. This is a trip we have done many times, and one of my favorite things about it is celebrating New Year’s Eve – Taos Style. We spend the day … Continue Reading
