I have been in love with Texas for as long as I can remember.
Whether it was visiting family or driving through on our way to somewhere else, I ALWAYS envisioned myself living here.
Five and a half years ago while living in the Washington DC metro area, I got up one morning, threw some clothes in the front seat of my car, loaded up my black lab Sally, slipped in a Merle Haggard CD and ran off to Texas.

When I crossed that State Line I cried.
Home at last.
Happy Independence Day, Texas.
The love affair continues.....
