If you follow me on instagram, then you may know that we are not in California and are enjoying the Texas heat. Well, kind of enjoying. I think it takes a bit of time to get used to this heat and humidity, though we do like that the sun is pretty much out until well after 9pm over here.
The trip here is kind of special because it marks the 10 year anniversary of Ben bringing me home to Texas. It was 10 years ago he first brought me and we had just officially become boyfriend and girlfriend. We made the long trek, with his little cousin in tow, so I could get to know his family and attend his annual family reunion. During that visit, and after seeing him interact with his family, I knew that I loved this man. Maybe that part should be left for the continuation of our love story, so I won’t go into too much details.
Here we are 10 years later, back in San Antonio to spend time with his family and to attend his annual family reunion. This year it will be on his cousin’s ranch, so the girls are especially excited for the hay rides and horses. Actually, I am too. We haven’t been to the reunion since that first time I came to Texas and things have changed a lot now that we are married and have four kids in tow.
There are so many memories attached to this city and different phases of our relationship that it is always good to come back. I love seeing all the trees here (I don’t understand why California doesn’t have very many), love the Tex-Mex food (oh man, we never find really good Mexican food in California like they have here), and love spending time with family. Every time we are here, we call it “laughter-noon” because we are always laughing and having a good time. San Antonio definitely equals good times.
Any of you from or live in San Antonio, Texas?
