From California to Texas

It was barely the new year when I packed up my car with all of my possessions and began to drive across the country to Huntsville, Texas: a place I had only been to twice before, and the direct antithesis of where I had grown up. As the drive continued I watched my life change in front of me, from the landscape, to the climate, and even the time zone. And let me tell you, it’s true what they say– everything is bigger in Texas. As a kid born and raised in the state of California, never having lived more than an hour away from the beach, I never imagined I would end up here.
