texas love

(i brought my cowgirl boots with me)

i’m smitten with texas. i’m here in dallas where the southern sweet talk is rampant, where the women where cowgirl boots with bling, where personalities are huge and warm. where, in my eavesdropping, every other sentence is bless her heart. though i’ve barely been here 24 hours, my accent has already started to mimic the people around me – something that is hilarious yet feels oddly just right.

when i was in highschool, i used to think i’d one day live in texas. i had texas bumper stickers in my room, t-shirts, the whole nine yards. so, it’s fun to be here and get reacquainted with all things texas. the people are just so warm….nobody is a stranger to the other, it seems.
the signing went well today – still feels like a dream, all of this. the showrooms, the product displays, strangers wanting to meet me, their stories, all the buzz. i’m just insanely grateful peeps are relating to my work, my heart. there is so much connection inside every moment of these days for me, but, i’m also ready to get home and get back into a routine. i’ve missed rainy seattle and the quiet.
and bikram yoga starts this week for me. it’s been a year or longer since i’ve been to bikram. wish me luck – hoping to make it through the first session without having to leave. also hoping it can help me get back into my clothes that i miss so much and that i’ve outgrown these last couple of months. 15 pounds, peeps. 15 pounds.

Sending much love,
