Houston, We Have a Problem

The problem......we are loving Texas and might not want to ever go home.

We have been to Ft. Worth to visit family, then on to Austin to visit more family and a treasured friend, and now we are in Houston visiting friends. The sweetest part about this Houston trip is that Tracy, my friend, has really just become my friend through facebook and blogging. We went to high school together, but we didn't really know each other back then. I love how facebook can cause a spark. I have been truly blessed to develop friendships with some women I went to high school with...even though our circles were not the same at the time. So - we are truly enjoying Tracy and her precious family. I just feel blessed to be welcomed so openly into so many homes across Texas. This road trip has been well worth every mile, every moment of lost sleep, and every extra calorie. (I will have to totally start my diet over when we get home.)

Texas, you are swell. And, you are hot and wet!

We drove into flash floods in Houston yesterday. In fact, we had to park 2 blocks from Tracy's house and wade through the water. Wild, eh?

Oy, that drive home is gonna be long.
