I tend to forget where I live. Maybe because
I actually live outside of this huge city.
Maybe it's something like living in Queens
or Brooklyn but saying you live in New York
and people taking that as NYC. I live in a
suburb of Dallas, I do live in the DFW area,
but not actually in Dallas. Where do we draw
the line, ya know? Amarillo was Amarillo and
once you were in Canyon you knew because
the 10 minutes of nothingness tended to tip
you off. Here, all in 20 minutes, you can be
in Richardson, Allen and Plano and not
even realize you ever left Richardson at
all. It's huge and it's somewhat confusing if
you, like me are directionally challenged.
But, it's fun and there is always so much
to do, so many places to eat, zoos, shopping
galore, museums and cool events! I used to
think I'd never leave Amarillo, but once I
did, I realized there just might be a big
city girl who's been hiding inside of me
the whole time.
Hubby took this one today while out on a
I took the photo above last year around July
4th because we were coming back into town
after a night with friends and I was completely
amazed and starry eyed as we went through
downtown Dallas. I literally forgot where we
live. It's so beautiful and BIG, you forget,
I don't know how, but somehow, you forget.
Here's to 22 years of living in my hometown,
Amarillo, to 4 years of living in "Dallas"
and to so many more adventures anywhere He
might take us!
