Good-Bye Dallas

We are heading out in a few days, so I will not be posting for about a week or longer. So this is my farewell to Dallas.


Dear Dallas,

We got off on the wrong foot, you and I. The first time I saw you, your gloomy grey skies, bare trees, and ice storms were more than I could bare. I stayed for four years, but never really felt like I belonged. I’m sorry I didn’t give it my best effort. I regret that. You just don’t have the big mountains, open sky and wide horizon that my heart desires. No outdoor adventures, hiking trails or camping sites that my body and soul craves. Despite my gloomy start, wonderful things did happened here, bad things too. But they have all helped me grow and learn. A small part of me will miss you and your grandness. Now, it is time for me to move on to place that is more me. I am excited.


P.S. The kids are all packed up and we’re headin’ WEST! Yeee-Ha!

    Safe travels!! That was a lovely good bye letter. I did the same thing when I left Florida. It’s funny how places we live tend to get personalities in our minds and in our hearts. I hope where you are headed to will be happy and fulfilling! All the best.

    I live in the Dallas burbs and can so relate. I miss the desert and the mountains. I miss the real Mexican food. When I was growing up in Phx, I just wanted to get out of there. Now that I’m much older and have lived elsewhere, I wouldn’t mind going back at all. Funny how life plays out that way.

    We moved a year and a half ago to Washington after living in Santa Fe for 4 years. It was never what we wanted it to be and it was time to move on. Your good bye letter sounds quite familiar. Good luck on your new adventure!
