I have some exciting news to share with you all!
If you didn’t already know, I moved out to the middle of nowhere! Not to another neighborhood, but to a completely different part of the state of Texas. I have moved to west Texas! It is all bitter sweet and very strange to me. All in all, I feel like this has been the best decision for me at this time in my life.
If you know me or have followed my blog for a little while, then you know I had been doing the long-distance thing for about a year! Whew, I never like to think too much about the time and I really cant believe a whole year went by being away from one another! It has had its ups and plenty of its downs. There have been tears and anger. There has been joy and laughter. We made memories to cherish but now is time for us to live together once more. I am beyond excited to start this new journey in a place that is unfamiliar territory.
So far it has been a completely different lifestyle. There’s no such thing as running down the road to the grocery store, being 20 minutes from the ocean, and there isn’t a Buc-ee’s or Whataburger in sight. So why would anyone want to leave the luxury of living in radius of pretty much anything your heart desires? It’s a combination of love, soul searching, job advancement, and a little bit of the wandering gypsy inside me.
I have never imagined a life living away from the salt water. For years the ocean has been the best place to loose my stress of the world. It has been my get away. Since I was a child my family always incorporated the beach. For a few years my grandparents were even park host at Quintana beach. You could say it’s like a second home. I am looking at the positive aspects of this move. I will get to do more with my horse and have endless trails to ride. It will be refreshing for my relationship. I love the outdoors but not only will I enjoy that, I know I will get back to appreciating the simple things more and more. It is my time to grow.
Another fact about me, since I feel like I’m being pretty open here (something I’m not very good at). I am a very close to my family. They are the glue that holds me together. We are always there for one another. This move is going to have an impact me. So I want my family to know how much I love them and will miss them. This isn’t goodbye though, it’s more of a “I’ll see you soon”!
I have been blessed with the presence of my friends and family, with my job, and with the many things I have that others do not. I am very grateful and hold so many emotions in my heart. Remember, I’m not leaving for good! It will just be longer waiting period to see each other. I really hope you do come visit. Let the journey begin!
