Austinite Holly Mills-Gardner thinks so and this blonde is everywhere. On TV as a host on Netflix, AMC & Longhorn Network, at galas, and supporting all the people, places and things she loves.

First album I bought was…Michael Jackson’s Thriller (it’s still my all-time favorite).
If I could live in a foreign city it would be…Cape Town, South Africa. I fell in love with “The Mother City” during my first visit 16 years ago. I’t’s truly a wonder of wonders.
