Farewell Fort Worth!

If you knew that you had to move TODAY, what would you miss the most about your current town/city??

I started thinking about this tonight when I was in the drive-thru line of one of my fave fast food restaurants. Clearly, this hit home since we are moving away from Fort Worth on Friday.

Here is my list of what I will miss about Fort Worth :

1. Joe T. Garcia's
2. Our First House
3. Our Neighbor's - Elaine and The Shorts
4. Gloria's Restaurant
5. SUPER Target (ughhh....I don't even want to TALK about it...)
6. Francesca's Collections
7. The Stockyards and Billy Bob's
8. Downtown Fort Worth
9. The McCord Family
10. The Buckmasters
11. My Fourth Graders
12. The Village Church and Matt Chandler
13. The Cows Behind Our House (we just became friends....)
14. My Skeeter Puppy....
15. Southlake Town Square
16. "Our" Donut Place
17. My Women's Bible Study Group
18. Mooyah Burgers
19. NOT seeing people I know EVERYWHERE I go
20. The new amazing farmer's market we JUST found...

(I am sure there are many many more...but it's hard to think of things off of the top of my head!)

There is ONE big thing that I will NOT miss : T.R.A.F.F.I.C!!!! It took me an HOUR to get to work today! My school is ONLY 13 miles from my house!

Please be in prayer for me about finding a new job in Tyler. I have some things in the works right now, but I really want to know something soon so that I don't have to worry/think about it all summer long! I want to be able to relax and nest in my new home! I know God has brought us 90% of the way so far, he isn't going to let me down for the next 10% of this journey!

I think we live in the same area. I'm near the new Alliance Town Center. We are scheduled to get a Super Target this fall, and I can't wait! But, would you mind telling me where you found a Farmer's Market? I've looked everywhere and usually have to drive out to McKinney! Thanks!

Where's this fantastic farmers market you speak of? Is that where you ate on Sunday?? How's the agave?

Good luck with the move & I'm praying for your job. I'm going through exactly the same thing right now. I just moved from CA to FL and still job searching.

Hi! I found your blog through Jennifer Francis-and have never commented before! I lived in Arlington my entire life and then 2 years ago moved about 30 minutes outside of Tyler to work at a church! There is alot of adjusting, but it gets easier! And there are still enough things to make it feel like home :) Good luck with your move!
