This Is Where We Live

Sunday, September 6, 2009

We've never had anything nice to say about Texas. We complained about living here before we even left Washington.

The best time to go outside and breathe fresh air, is just after a rain storm. And no clouds on earth can make rain as beautiful as the rain in Texas.

As our time in the lone star state comes to an end, I catch myself putting on a sad face and frowning at the thought of living anywhere other than Indiana Street. I took both of the above pictures so that we always remember how much we loved the state that we hated so much.

Beautiful! I'm from El paso Texas and now live in Vegas. Both are very similar only we get much less rain. I dislike this city as you did/do Texas but we do have the most beautiful sunsets nightly =) Your photo is a reminder of that.

Aw, glad that you'll have fond memories of something about Texas! We've thought for the last year, that we'd get out of here as soon as possible... but now that we are buying a house, we are trying to be positive about our time here, since it looks like we'll be here at least 5 more years.

Whatever. I still hate it.

Do you know where you are going next?

beautiful pictures Tia... the next place you go will have something unique and beautiful too. I love the smell of after rain here in Canada...nice and crisp and earthy smelling.

I guess the luxury of missing a place only comes with leaving it. These photos are gorgeous, and I think it's nice to find the silver lining, even if it's now that you're leaving. Hopefully, that comes with the new digs soon after you arrive — and that will be a sign that it's a better fit for you :) Happy moving!

Pretty! I don't get up early enough to see anything like that. Great photos!

after living in texas my whole life (until i was 21), i was sure texas would always be the place i wanted to be. now that i'm out, i love the hills and nature of northwest arkansas. it's so much different than i ever imagined. now i'm living in a frumpy little town called tahlequah, oklahoma and i can't wait to get out. even abilene was better than this place! there's not a hobby lobby or michael's for 30-60 miles!
