Regional Groups in TexasThe TexKos-Messing with Texas with Nothing but Love for Texans group, which formed in Feb. 2011, has 35 members. It helps us to meet one another, though, if folks see a more local group to join and/or to follow:
Please consider stepping up to organize if there isn't a group in your area.
If you want to join a group, kosmail the organizer. And be sure to follow your group by clicking on the ♥ beside the group name so that you'll get group diaries in your stream. (Unfortunately, being a group member won't make that happen.)
