Let’s first clarify that I am not claiming to be a Texan. I suppose it’s kind of like the first time you refer to your college residence as “home,” when on the phone with your mom. You are promptly reminded that the city you currently live in is not “home.” It will never be “home,” because let’s be honest – home is where your mom is.
Now, do I love Dallas? Yes. Surprisingly, I’m far more attached to it than I was to Tulsa, but perhaps have not met it with the same admiration I had for Oklahoma City. To be frank, a lot of that had, and currently has, to do with the exact part of town I get to claim as my little piece.
This little part, my neck of the
woods city, has quaint homes, quiet sidewalks, and a dover of ducks. Seriously – loads of them and the cutest ducklings! I’m just removed enough from downtown (too much for me), and uptown (if you’re feelin 22), but a quick run to my favorite shops is not far enough to be out of the question.
People are friendly, everyone has a dog, and no one has seemed to mind too much that I am using their front porch as a photo op. However, I do have one neighbor who runs outside to frighten the ducks off his lawn, only to go back inside as they settle in on his green grass for the day. He then returns to his stationary bicycle – which can of course be seen through the front window
So, here I am in my new cowgirl-esque booties – fit for an Oklahoma soul who still dresses up as a Dallas cowgirl from time to time.

My favorite outfit circa 1996, minus the perm. Be glad you missed out on that part.
