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