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.

 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?
