A New Home Up North
Our journey began on warm start to February. As the Texas sun rose, we said farewell to the star state we had come to love and know as home. Larger than life lakes and southern ranches played in the reflection of our mirror. We crossed the grasslands of Oklahoma as we had done many times before in our biannual road trips up north.
The grasslands gave way to the Ozark Mountains and just as the temperature began to rapidly fall. It was like a slot machine watching the colder temperatures pop up every 30 miles or so. Further north east the mountains became hills and the hills became prairie. We followed Mark Twain's path across the dark Mississippi laden with floating islands of ice; into the state where our roots were originally planted. Like a welcome signal, snow began to fall and glide across the black top with the grace of the a swan.
It's good to be home surrounded by family, friends, and kind memories of yesteryear.
