My First Year in Houston

 I recently celebrated my  one-year anniversary of being a Houston resident, I wanted to do a recap of the last year. I’ll apologize in advance for the long post.

Last year I completed my last two weeks at my previous job, said goodbye to friends, and embarked on a new adventure in a new city. I didn’t have any worry in my heart because I know that God put me on the path, and He would guide me everyday.

I left Dallas on Sunday night, it was supposed to be Sunday afternoon but I kept finding more stuff that I had to load into my little Jetta. To add to the stress of a 4 hour drive with most of your belongings in the car, I had to start work the next morning. Yes, I’m THAT person who moves on a Sunday and starts work on Monday.

Over the last year, I’ve had so much fun and experienced more than I thought I would in a short amount of time. Here are a few highlights of what I have done in the last year!
