Make Hay While the Sun Shines

girlgonegraphic_texas_1girlgonegraphic_texas_2I was a first-timer, a Texas virgin! But boy am I happy that I went and got to experience this. I flew into Ft. Worth on a last-minute whim and spent a couple days exploring the area. I’ve been to a lot of places in the US, but I can say with certainty that this trip was most out of my comfort zone (which is good). I went to my first honky tonk, danced the 2-step, attended a rodeo, and even made my own Coke in one of those machines.

There were boots and hats everywhere (it’s legit fashion, not even made-for-tv). And food – yes. I got some really good mexican, and tried the locally-famous Whataburger (which tasted really really fresh!). Everyone was kind, and southern hospitality is real. I envision more trips in the future, but next time I’d like to get out to the desert and see the Marfa lights.

It was a wonderfully restorative trip, and a great adventure. I feel whole.

    Texas… home sweet home. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Whataburger, oh Whataburger. Definitely a missed treat. Growing up in West Texas I’ve seen the Marfa Lights plenty of times. You will have to check them out. They are freaky, fascinating, and pretty cool all at the same time.
