A click of the heels…

going back home. My home state, at least. It’s been 29 years since I’ve lived there. And unlike most folks, I’ve never had a hankering to move “back home”, to Louisiana.

I enjoyed my adopted home, Texas. I lived in Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Pleasanton, Kingsville and Carrollton. Other than Wichita Falls, I understand the pride of Texans. Then again, WF is practically in Oklahoma, so maybe it’s not officially a part of “The Republic”.

In 2005, my husband received a nice job offer in Florida. We have enjoyed Florida! There may be a slight misrepresentation of “The Sunshine State” because for the past month, as in every summer for the four years we’ve lived here, we have had rain everyday. Still, we plan to enjoy our last few weeks here.

In over a month, we’ll be immersed in the life and culture of Lafayette, Louisiana. It may be my birth state, but definitely a different way of life from where I was raised. (I’m from southeast Louisiana!). Different food, topography, music, even language! I’m determined to embrace my new home and make it my own.

My new mantra is “home is where you make it”.
