I may have been a Texan. My husband and I visited son #1 and his lovely wife in their home town, Austin.
My husband, L., and our two (now adult) children and I were born and raised in Southern California. Hot tub jokes aside, our little community is a “little slice of paradise” to us.
Early in our marriage my husband took a promotion in his job and we packed our toddler and moved to Arlington, Texas (a suburb of Dallas/Forth Worth, otherwise known as the “Metroplex”). During the 2 years we were there we grew to love the people (it’s true what they say about southern hospitality).
We still find it a fun coincidence that son #1 met, fell in love with and married an Austinite (is that a term?) while living in Los Angeles, and now they call Austin home. For good reason, what a great city!
Note: Word has it that the UT football team may become a Pac 10 football time in a couple of years.
