I was born and raised in the Texas hill country and am definitely a Texas girl. I've lived in New Mexico and Kansas, but Texas is definitely home, unless I'm with my parents in Louisiana, then that's home.
What makes my parent's house in Louisiana "home"?
*The marble board made by a a great great great on the table ready for a game between me and Mom
*The plants....so many plants (and they're ALIVE!!)
*Mom and Dad
*Going to the gun range with Dad
*A calm and relaxed, stress-free feeling
