I had my first trip out since March 13, and I made sure we weren’t stopping anywhere until we reached our destination. It was good to see different scenery, but I was also nervous what to expect. My husband is the only one in our household who has been going out. It was easier for him and I since he didn’t mind going out.

Texas salons and barbershops opened Friday, May 8 and I know everyone is trying to get to their favorite salon or barber. Some owners believe it’s too soon to reopen and are waiting a little longer before they open. Tattoo shop owners are upset they couldn’t open.
