We moved to Oklahoma from California.
Where did that go?
And why does it feel like we just moved here yesterday?
Or that we have lived here forever.
So, here are some things I still love about our home state:
- the hay meadow
- sunsets (seriously)
- the lake
- the icy streets that cause schools to close for many days
- the quiet of the mornings
- the array of stars in the sky
- the thunderstorms
- the cows
- the horses
- the fact that I see at least 2 people I know every time I go to Target.
- I can no longer go to Target without any make up
- just sayin
- Ted's queso and tortillas
- Sonic Ice
- yep, still
- the word y'all
- I actually tried using that with my kids and they laughed
- guess I still have a few years to go to get countrified
- our pastor using "you know you're a redneck" jokes during his sermon
- our church
- our small group
- our friends who have become our family
- Poteet Theater
- seriously, go see a show
- maybe Carousel this summer
- there may be some cute kids in the cast
- shut up
- the smell of the rain
- the quiet of the snow
- the leaves falling off the trees
- making big piles of them and jumping into them
- the fact that we have a ride on lawnmower
- and watching Michael mow.
- and closing my eyes when he lets Sammy mow.
- not frogs or turtles
- I killed a couple last year
- I feel a little guilty
- hey, they crossed right in front of my car
- ok, well the turtle was in the process of crossing
- he didn't get to far
- EVER again.
- our neighbors
- except Mrs. Kravitz.
- That isn't her name.
- I actually don't know her name.
- We just call her that.
- Bless her heart.
- My husband's face when he talks about his job.
- My kids telling me they never EVER want to move.
- that finally,
- my heart, is at home.
