It took a huge truck, a few planes, and one furry companion, but I finally made it to my destination. Anyone who has ever moved before knows how much work it is, and I somehow managed to make it happen in two weeks. As someone who has always been fairly discreet over social media, opening my life up in a blog is a new adventure. As long as it's not a gateway into selfie sticks and leaked photo scandals, I'll take the risk if it helps me stay connected to the people and place I called home. With the huge outpouring of support from friends and family, it's safe to say this Iowa gal is ready to take on Texas!
