this afternoon was perfect. the morning drizzles were just clearing out and the air was crisp. i decided to scope out some places to take photos of the boys and i accidentally snapped one of myself. or i guess i should say, of most of myself.
that is me in texas folks.
true story. in the fifth grade, my friend cynda lilly took a vacation to texas. she came back with pictures and a smile. i vowed then and there that i would never visit texas. why you ask? i really don't know. honest to goodness truth. guess i was just a snot nosed kid or something.
here i am twelve years later, a bonified resident. my shiny new license should be here any day and when i write my address i still have to stop and think about it so i don't mess up.
life is funny.
and texas isn't so bad as i once thought. in fact it's pretty great. i'm still settling in and waiting for that homey feeling to set in. i still feel like home is hundreds of miles away. i still feel like my heart might break if i don't get to enjoy the snow and a cup of hot chocolate in the mountains. but i'm getting there.
besides, the best parts about home are right here with me. and that's something to smile about.
