Texas is where my heart belongs!

March 15, 2011

It has been over a year since I bought my one way tickets and jumped a plane to NYC. It has been the adventure of a lifetime, full of friends, food, sightseeing, experiences, dating, tears, heartache and love. I knew in my heart when I set out on this adventure, that it was exactly that an ADVENTURE meant to open my eyes, open my heart, and help me understand what my future can hold.

After 13 months of adventure, I am packing my bags and returning to my one true home- TEXAS (April 15th is the big day). I have been accepted into the teacher certification program, and am going to do my very best to be a teacher come August. I think I want to teach 6th grade because they are my favorite age, but we will see what God has in store. Teaching brought me a joy that is irreplaceable, and even though there were days I wasn’t sure I would make it through, I NEVER hated my job. I can’t wait to be home close to all my family (this includes so many more people than just my immediate family) and friends. I am ready to start saving for a house and create a future for me (something it took me a long time to understand I don’t need husband for, but when God brings him I’ll be ready).

I still have several things on my NYC BUCKET LIST. I will be posting a list and dates I plan on crossing this list off tomorrow. My list includes biking the West Side Highway, Boston, Trapeze School, lots of food and more. If you are in NYC come join me for all these fun events. I will post a picture and recap of each!

I must say thank you to everyone who has supported me these last 13 months. I have been a crazy mess for most of them, so thank you for loving me through this adventure, especially my mom.

TEXAS watch out I am coming home and looking to hug each one of you, bake up a storm, make a daily Sonic run, and put my heart back where it belongs!

    Tash — yay, Texas has missed you! I’m assuming you’re moving to Houston? Much closer to the ATX, for sure. 🙂 I think you’ve done awesome by following your dream of living in NYC for a year — seriously impressive. What an experience I’m sure you’ll never forget! Hope to see you soon! Hugs.

    Jen- It has been quite the adventure! Houston is going to be home for now, but who knows where this journey will take me. I miss you and everyone else is Austin too! Hoping for a Texas road trip in July.
