We touched down at George Bush Intercontinental and all I could think about was Liz Lemon yelling "It's not my airport!" on 30 Rock last week. Until I looked outside. Sun; glorious, warm Sun! How I've missed you!It was 80 the whole time. My husband whined, but my brother-in-law and I were in heaven.

In Photos: 36 hours in TexasI feel right at home in Texas, which was rather unexpected at first. My husband's family and all their friends make up, what I believe to be, a somewhat rare pocket of liberal Texans. They also make me feel welcome by always having a pecan pie waiting for me.
In Photos: 36 hours in TexasWe were in Houston for a family wedding. The cake was delicious and, unfortunately, the leftovers were in the same house we were staying at. I ate far too much.

travel, photography, Denver, Fleur d'Elise Homeward bound: we had a short layover in Denver where I ran into a girl I went to high school with. Small world.
And now, here I am, back in Seattle. My pecan pie is waning and I'm already planning what I will do when I  am finally able to visit Houston with a little more time on my hands.
