About Me





Hola! from the Texas Tropics!

 Hello dear friends!  If you follow us on FB you might already know that we've left Monterey and our now residing in what is called "The Texas Tropics!"  I'm not gonna lie, it was hard saying goodbye to my beloved California.  I just adore my home state, but I also love adventure and life has brought us to the Texas Tropics and we are happy to be here.
Texas is definitely very different than Cali but rather than focus on comparisons, I want to enjoy all the newness.  One thing I have always been drawn to is tradition and I really love all the pride, customs and history that Texas has to offer.   Our Coastal Adventures continue but now you will be seeing us along the Gulf of Mexico (and who knows where else!) . Here's to a happy new year to all of you and thank you for coming along on all of our journeys!

Oh my goodness - congrats on your relocation! I hear that the Gulf of Mexico is beautiful. I can't wait to read about all your new adventures.

That means you are closer to me!
However, I am not a fan of Texas unless its downtown Fort Worth. ;)
But I will make an exception for you.
I was born down there near Galveston.
I cant believe you moved.
I would like to move all the time but parents and my good job keep me here.
Cant wait to see whats in store.

Welcome to Tropical Texas! I'm thrilled we are neighbors (almost, anyway).
Nice collage of your journey. The boys look like they're enjoying our warm sun.
I try not to draw comparisons either, as it suits no purpose. :)
Texas is raw and rugged and full of adventures.
