When he was about four, my brother wrote a song called “Gone to Texas.” And that is what we are- gone to Texas. Or rather, we are going to Texas. Josh took a job in Houston so in September, we are trading this:
And yes, we are very excited. The clues yesterday were apparently easy since my friend Amy guessed within seconds of seeing it. ZZ Top- from Texas. Renee Zellweger- from Texas. Tacos/Tex Mex- greatest part about moving to Texas. Lyle Lovett, my favorite musician- from Houston, Texas. Borden’s evaporated milk, used to make cheesecakes (mmm!)- invented in Texas. And my role model, Tami Taylor, from Friday Night Lights- set in Texas. I will miss New York for some reasons- mostly friends but the opportunities in Houston are amazing. I will have more space to work and an office to run Plain Jane’s out of. And, I can have breakfast tacos every day, which should result in a happier me therefore a more productive me.
