A Few Of My Favorite Things

Hi! I am Barbara Ireland, publisher/owner of Celina Lifestyle and Texoma City Lifestyle. I am a 5th generation Dallasite who loves all things Texan - people, places, traditions. That includes my husband, Roger (born in Fort Worth), who is joining our City Lifestyle team on this journey in Texoma as Area Director, and our two kids (Dallasites), Preston and Pene Laine, who inspire me daily. I love traveling abroad, reading historical fiction, and hiking in the mountains. I love a warm cup of coffee, a good book, and a cozy cafe. I am excited to highlight all of the people, local businesses, and events that make Texoma so special.

1. Spending time with my beautiful (and tall!) family

2.  A glass of red with a little nosh from Stafford House Provisions

3.  Hiking the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We have a log cabin there where we unplug and reconnect with nature.

4.  Tucking into a book at Cafe Blackbird. I carry one with me wherever I go.

5.  Coffee! Any kind, anytime, anywhere.

6.  Dinner with friends. Whether it's a local steakhouse or around the kitchen table, I love good conversation and good times!
