Don't forget to visit the butterflies

While I have lived in Texas for quite some time, I have only been in Midlothian, Texas for a few months. I feel like I have learned a lot about this city in those short few months, though! Being just 25 miles from Dallas, there is quite a bit to do around here! I don't mind a little bit of a drive, so I will go into Dallas frequently for fun festivities and shopping!

I am very into outdoors so I enjoy going to the nearby parks. My favorite is all of the farmers markets to visit and get fresh fruits and veggies from! Some days I will even go to the farmers market to get something to eat and go enjoy it at a nearby park on a picnic! There is also an amazing butterfly garden that is fun to go do, especially with kids! They always enjoy getting to see all of the butterflies! I have really enjoyed being here in Midlothian!
