Feeling a little homesick today.  There is so much I miss: tecate with a little hot sauce and lime, maudies,chuys,polvos,el cosmico, booty shakin to that dirty south hip-hop, alecia and rachels laugh, harper lee saying "no" all the time, teaching alexandra the best flows, hearing "what the shit" and "take it deep" from my wife, krystles hand gestures, misty coming over for dinner at my floks house, the greenbelt, queso!!, emily and alicin telling it like it is, grandpa's(catalena) whistle talking, lor-aiiine, bullshittin'and bar-b-quein', and so much more.

  1. you girls are stunning! I dig your style SO much. <3 <3 <3 SOTBM

  2. beautiful.
    It is hard to be away, to leave... fell madly in love with the man from Canada, so here we are in Vancouver after a decade in London, away from my initial home (south of France) -- it takes some times, doesn't it? we were two, now we're three, it helps to plant some new roots...
    Good luck with your new everything!

  3. is it possible to be more Texan when you are away from Texas? I lived in London for three years and I swear to Willie I was more Texan living overseas than I am when I'm home (which is saying a lot, because I am pretty flipping Texan).

    I feel you on the homesickness. I am convinced that there is a special level of homesickness just for Texas. It's just...in us. You know?

  4. thanks ladies!

    Katy you hit the nail on the head. There is certainly a special feeling that growing up in Texas creates deep in us. I will be visiting soon!
