  1. WOW! Four years! Seems like yesterday you were posting on how to hop a VIA bus and enjoy highlights along Broadway, including a tasting feast at Central Market! What an accomplishment…this is way better than graduation day! Congratulations! VIVA Denise! Like always, I look forward to your next inspiring post which is driven by your passion for the city you love. And San Antonio loves you back! We all benefit from the gems of your treasure hunts…muchas gracias, mi amiga! Peggy Bowie
