Cathy Martin brought a bit of the HGTV hit show FIXER UPPER home to Columbia by way of her photo journal describing a day in Waco, TX with husband David "JJ" Martin.
Her note, "My favorite TV show! ...going to miss it so much!" will strike a cord in many of us who agree with Cathy that Chip and Joanna Gaines' retirement from their famous television show will cause some grieving, even though we absolutely support their decision to put family first.
After breakfast at Chip and Joanna’s restaurant, Magnolia Table, and a tour of the market, the Martins enjoyed a guided tour of the Chip-named developments related to the show, including The Silos, The Shotgun house, The Bachelor Pad, The German Schmear house and The Mid Century Modern house, among others.
Every reader will recall their first awareness of the town. The first time I became familiar with Waco was on a six-months work contract with Paul J. Meyer's attitude and time management development company, Success Motivation Institute. I thought it, and Baylor U, were reasons enough for Waco to be well known.
That was until the team of Chip and Joanna Gaines shared their work, their home, children and daily lives with the world. And now we know the best thing ever to happen to Waco is that family.
