Not everything’s big in Texas…

Welcome! 🙂
So, here I am, a 5’2″ and 115 lbs. Southern lady, moving to “big Texas.”


At Table Rock in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
My husband, Erik, will be pursuing a Master’s of Arts in Advertising in fall 2012 at the University of Texas at Austin, so we’re packing our apartment and leaving a city we’ve become quite fond of: Raleigh, NC. (Shout-out to my Raleigh-ites! We’ll miss you!) Erik isn’t starting school right away for one major reason: to attain in-state tuition. We “set sail” on July 10 from North Carolina. I hope both our cars can take the 24-hour drive. No worries; we’ll be stopping along the way to say hello to old friends and new-to-me family.  This blog will be a way to share our new journey. I will post photos and commentary of our adventures in Austin, TX, as we explore the history, culture, arts, food, and people of a people foreign to me. Here’s to living life and taking opportunities as they come your way!
Happy reading, friends!

About asmallthingintexas

I am a small thing in big Texas. This blog will detail this big change for my husband, Erik, and I, as well as share new recipes, adventures, and commentary. We are moving from Raleigh, NC, to Austin, TX, in early July and cannot wait to start a new journey together, learning about the history, culture, food, and people of this southwest state. Wish us luck!
