A start of a new life

Tomorrow, my husband and I will help our daughter and son-in-law move from California to their new life in Austin, TX.  Our daughter has lived here all her life.  She was born here, went all through school and college here.  But now they're making a new life in Texas.

It's hard to let go.  When she married, they still lived in the same city as us.  We would get together for dinners, some shopping, visiting.  She even got me started on Facebook (thanks sweetheart).  She and her husband have been making Christmas dinner for all of us the last few years.  I'm going to miss her so much.

Our son-in-law's company is picking up roots and moving to Texas.  He was one of a few hand-picked to move with them.  So starting tomorrow morning, we're in a caravan with our car, my daughter's car and the U-haul truck.  We just hope the weather will hold.

  1. I hope you have a safe trip. I did the very same thing: moved from CA to TX and away from family. Though it was a tough decision, I am very happy in Texas. I hope your daughter enjoys it as well. Now when you visit, she can take you to get great barbecue!
