The Story

The History of Rio Blanco Provisions

I am not sure where it truly starts. If energy is infinite and I am the sum of the energies before me, than who is to say?

My mother is cool personified; she chose to raise my sisters and me on the banks of the Blanco River. She was born a Texan, raised coast to coast, a Navy brat herself.  

Maybe it goes further back to her mother, a woman of impeccable style and grace. A woman who proudly told stories of growing up imbued with a sense of what it meant to be “South Texas Royalty” and whose lineage can be traced to the original 300, an allure that only other Texans can appreciate, and anyone else couldn’t care less about.

Maybe it starts with me, in a quest to curate a thoughtful, examined life. The reason for launching Rio Blanco Provisions was to have a platform on which to share items designed by myself and in collaboration with others, as well as found goods that elicit joy. 

There is a story behind every item, if you’re curious, just ask, I would love to tell it to you. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. To those who I’ve had the good fortune to know this far, thank you for the support and to those I’ve yet to encounter, I look forward to the day we collide. 

Here’s to sharing in the ebbs and flows of life!
