Where in tarnation did the name 'Hillbilly Debutante' come from?


Well, y'all...for starters, this is a resurrection of a very old blog.

 I originally started 'Hillbilly Debutante: Musings of a Country Girl Stuck in the City' in the spring of 2008 when I lived near Washington, DC.

My husband worked in politics (still does) and I felt like a fish outta water in that den of iniquity some call the Nations Capital.

I used this blog as a way to kind of make fun of myself as I adapted to a very fast-paced, formal, uptight way of life. 

One day, after my last little chick left the nest, and Hubby and I were tucked in for the night, I announced:

"I love you, but I hate this place more. I'm headed to Texas."

The next day I loaded up my cowboy boots, clothes, Merle Haggard Cd's and a black lab named Sally and headed cross country to the small city of Rowlett, Texas.

Those 7 years of Texas were some of my happiest.

Then, one day.....Hubby says "We love Puerto Rico. Why don't we move there?"

And that's how I found myself living on the ocean in Humacao, Puerto Rico.

If you've followed the old blog, and you've followed me on Facebook and Instagram you KNOW there is a LOT more to this story....

but, alas...

THAT's for another time.
