We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
We’ve been talkin’ ’bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I’m goin’ to Jackson, I’m gonna mess around,
Yeah, I’m goin’ to Jackson,
Look out Jackson town.
Well, while Johnny Cash and June Carter got it right in the songwriting department; I’d have to change the lyrics around for me.
I did NOT get married in a fever, although that would be interesting news; and I’m not goin’ to Jackson.
Where I AM goin’ is to…
If you’ve been with me at a day from scratch for a while now, you may know that I have moved around a little bit in the past few years.
Some folks know exactly what they want for their life when they graduate from college, who they want to be; I was not that gal. So after a few years chasing dreams in Houston, Nashville and Austin; I’m heading back to good ole H-town.
These past few years have been invaluable for me. I like to take risks, I follow my heart to a fault and I fully believe in staying true to myself. Before I moved away from Houston, I don’t know for sure that I was staying true to myself or following my own intuition. Sometimes it was easier to do what other people thought I should do or what society thought I should do rather than staying true to myself. Moving away forced me to fight for myself and speak up for the things that I truly want in life. Though there were the MANY MANY struggles and TONS of bumps to overcome I got to know myself as a result.
If someone had told me that just a few years after leaving Houston I’d be turning the bend and heading home, I would have laughed right at you. But, it’s a funny thing being away from your family and friends while pursuing your dreams; they are the ones you want to share them with once they start to come true.
Soooo, what’s next for ole Liz? Well, I’m still going to be blogging here; just from a different city and a different kitchen. I’ll also be moving my personal chef/ catering company there as well. So if you find yourself hungry in Houston anytime, give me a shout. If not, check back here soon and I’ll be sure to keep your bellies full with fun and delicious recipes!
Thanks for sticking by me friends! You all mean more to me than words can express.
