The Moving Chronicles: Becoming Texan

10.12.2009

For this California girl, born and raised, an invitation to become Texan is pretty mind blowing. However, I find it very handy that the state of Texas did send me a set of directions for getting everything in order.

I mean, you know, they do say, “Don’t mess with Texas” for a reason.

Oh and I’m still shopping for some good Cowboy boots.
