Home.

I arrived at my new home in Texas this evening. It feels really good to be here, reunited with my husband (who is currently snoring away on the pillow next to me). I guess I'm still on Pacific time, because I'm wide awake!

Walking through our house tonight was so cool! I'm overwhelmed in the best way possible--so many possibilities as I think about nesting and decorating and making this house a home.

It feels so good to be in our new home, to be home here with Hubs, and to be back in Texas--my home state.

After living in California for the past 3.5 years (and loving it!), there is something very special about returning to the culture I grew up in, the culture that I understand. While I've never really been the obnoxious brand of Texan (the kind who thinks everything is bigger and better in Texas--although it is sometimes true!), there is no doubt that it is and will always be my home state.

And today...it feels good to be home.

It is so good to go home again. I'm not a native Westerner either and I completely understand what you mean by cultural differences. We're one big nation but we vary quite a bit by region. Enjoy some of that good food for me!!
