Susie is helplessly addicted to horseback riding and McDonald’s coffee. She also loves cooking and enjoying time with family.

And a little Q&A …
Gratitude seems to be a big deal to you – why? How important is it in your life?
For me, gratitude is all about an understanding of grace. The fact that my life spills over with treasures I didn’t achieve and don’t necessarily deserve – including my husband, my children and my faith – keeps me in an attitude of constant awe to the one that provides them. Gratitude sustains my joy.
What gave you this “a-ha” moment…why “give thanks”?
Giving thanks has always been a piece of my life. But it wasn’t until I experienced a tragedy that I understood full force the power of gratitude. And it was then that I learned the value of giving thanks in all things – every day.
What are a few things you love about Austin?
Here are my top five today … in no particular order:
Going over the Pennybacker Bridge at any time of the day but especially in the morning when the lake is smooth.
Discovering a new, local restaurant with a friend.
Driving 2222 at dusk on a Sunday afternoon – windows down and music up .
Walking the streets of the neighborhood where I grew up and seeing people I’ve known since I was a kid.
Live oaks, bluebonnets and bats.
