Mckinney, TX has been slowly making its way onto the “must see list” in Texas for the past few years. Although it continues to grow quickly, the town places its focus on keeping the “small town feel” with its community driven goals and picturesque settings. Mckinney has many sites to see, but one of my very favorite places is the historic downtown area. It is like stepping back into time (I feel like I will run into Andy Griffith and Otis any day now); the people are friendly, the shops are adorable, the houses are beautiful, and the food is delicious. I thought I would share some of my very favorite spots around town, just in case you’re swinging through (in which case, call me. I am always up for a lunch/shopping day with new friends).

Sometimes, my cocktail creative juices temporarily short out. Instead of just sticking to wine (which is never a bad thing) I head over to some of my favorite blogs to source some inspiration. While I am trying to get my juices (& gin) flowing, I thought I would share my go to’s and what they have on the menu right now.
