In one week I will be starting an incredibly exciting new chapter - at a new job, in a new city, in a new state. I'm not scared...yet, but just overwhelmed with excitement. My parents have been so supportive of this, which has made this such an easy decision. I have fought this next part long enough....years even...I'm officially going to be a....be a....be a....Texan. That hurt a little bit. I have flip-flopped between these 2 wonderful states quite a bit - grew up in Oklahoma, undergrad in Texas, grad school in Oklahoma, fellowship in Texas, next job in Oklahoma, and now back to Texas. Seriously...do I have commitment issues or something?!? Very possible. I'm very serious about setting down some roots this time...so serious I'm actually going to get a Texas drivers license! Woah I know I'm getting a little crazy here. One step at a time Ash.
So I have started this blog back up for my dear sweet momma so she can keep her eye on me. I love her very much and am so thankful she's allowed me to this 6 months to spend a crazy amount of time with her. First time we've lived together in 8 years and we didn't miss a beat. And mom - distance doesn't change a thing. We'll still be best friends :) And you are always more than welcome to come visit me when I'm ill...or want to shop...or you just miss me :)
Hey there Big City...Here I Come!!!
