James says I’m officially a Texan now

Today marks my 32nd and a half birthday!  I moved to Texas, from southern California, just after I turned 16.  You do the math, and I have lived in Texas now more than I have lived in California because I am 32 1/2!  I remember doing the math when I was 16 years old and thinking 32 years old!  Wow…that is sooooo far away!  Crazy to think how much has happened and that I’m so established in this state now!  I’ll probably never move out of it!  So, James says I’m officially a Texan now.  Hmmmm, I don’t know about “official”, but it is kinda cool to acknowledge a fun date such as 11-11-11 as the day I became an “unofficial” Texan.

And in the spirit of flashback Friday, here is our Christmas card photo on our last Christmas in Texas (1994).  We moved in early July of ’95.  I’m sure you aren’t surprised to hear that this photo was my idea.  I just love creative Christmas cards!  🙂  So, here we are as the Beverly Hillbillies!  (And yes, I actually thought most Texans wore cowboy hats, bolero ties, rode horses around town, etc.)

Texas or Bust!
