Texas. I try to avoid this state. Growing up it was because they are home to the cowboys, more recently it is because it is home to Bush. But, my best friend Amy lives here…dead smack in between Dallas and Fort Worth. So it’s worth the trip to spend some quality time with her. She has sewing projects lined up and I brought knitting 🙂 The great state of Texas welcomed me with very real threats of a tornado hitting Amy’s house. It made for an intense first dinner with thunder shaking the house and 50mph winds. And of course there is no basement or bathtub to crawl safely to in the event the roof does rip off. Here goes night 1!
