I’ve lived all my life in the Lone Star state. But this Thanksgiving, for the first time in 34 years, I will set my table outside of Texas.
We’re trading the humid flatlands of North Central Texas for the hills and mountains of the Southeast.
Amid the flurry of marketing our home and packing, and then taking a break to twiddle my thumbs in the hospital , I haven’t given a lot of thought to what I might miss. I know I’ll miss family and friends. Surely, leaving people behind is the hardest part.
But what about Texas? Will I miss the accents, the Tex-Mex cuisine, the “here, you’re in God’s country!” mentality?
What do you think ? Are you a Texas transplant, or have you lived outside of Texas and then moved back? What did you miss?
