My blog is late this week because we spent the weekend with family in Texas. We shopped, sampled a little wine, and visited. When family turns to friends, you know you’ve got a good relationship. My husband’s cousin and his wife looked us up after more than 30 years and it has been more fun than we could have ever imagined. We even got to visit with their son and grand dog.
We started at their home in Glen Rose, TX (southwest of Ft. Worth) and we used it as a jumping off point to travel to points in northern Texas. We spent one day in Grapevine, Christmas shopping and checking out some Texas wine. The second day we traveled to downtown Dallas and the Kennedy Museum at Dealey Plaza. It didn’t hurt that the cousins knew the roads in the Metro Plex and we traveled them in style.
It is amazing to reconnect with people from your past and when you have similar interests, it makes it even more fun. We plan to get together again in the spring.
The drive down was uneventful, but we saw the beginning of winter on the way back. The first snow of the season visited early this year. It was beautiful, and the roads were still good in the area we traveled. Thanks, Texas, for a great weekend.
What did you do this weekend?
