For my mom’s birthday back in July, my sisters and I decided to buy her a trip to The Round Top Antique Show. What better way to quick off Spring than an eighteen-hour road trip with your family down to New Ulm, TX? Amiright? Don’t worry, we made it without completely losing it.
After spending the night in Oklahoma City, we made our next move to Fort Worth, TX where we stopped at The Stockyards. My mom, two sisters, and I channeled our inner tourist as we enjoyed some southern hospitality, western stores, warm weather, and let’s not forget the cattle drive.
For those that know me, you know I am absolutely loving this! In fact, I’m now determined to move to Texas at some point in my life. I am a lover of all things rodeo and that’s just what Texas is all about. You can look around and see people with dirt on their boots, cowboy hats on, and that southern heat just makes me love this place even more.
For all my life, I’ve always seemed to be a home-body, the “what ifs” of life seemed to hold me back from doing the things that I wanted, they held me back from truly living.
I am determined to no longer live my life that way. I’ve been held back by what I thought were boundaries enforced by others but after having a self-realization, they were limits I placed on myself.
Some of you may wonder why this realization happened when it did and I wish I could give you more of an answer to that but I can’t answer that. All I know is that God’s timing is perfect and that I will place my trust in Him.
Life is truly too short to not live a little bigger, l
augh a lot harder, and spread your wings just a bit wider. Now, I didn’t plan for this blog to become philosophical but that’s just who I am. And as the Texans say, “Go Big or Go Home!”
Anyways, I am completely in love with Texas. There are horses everywhere (insert heart eyes) and on top of that, I cannot get over the heat!
Off to Round Top, Texas, hopefully, something worth writing about will happen! Until then, have a wonderful day!
