I never really thought I was attached to Texas when I lived here the first time (actually 2nd time, I couldn’t really remember being born here). Junior high through high school, I did what I could to not let this state define who I was. I was an ex-Navy Brat who couldn’t shake her wanderlust. I felt suffocated in our small, conservative town. When I left for college at Mizzou, I didn’t think I was ever moving back to Texas.
To keep this blog post short, let’s just jump to the part where I DID move back. And I brought my husband and my tiny 8 week old first-born with me. Turns out, I missed it. And now it feels like home.
I still don’t feel comfortable saying we will be here forever, and I don’t really align with a lot of what people think this state represents, but I love it. I truly do.
The people are nice, the tacos are a plenty, it’s casual, the houses are gorgeous and cheap, and the bluebonnets bloom every spring.
A lot of people from other states tell me they wish they could come take pictures of or with the bluebonnets, so I thought I’d put a few images up for you all that you’re welcome to download (free!) for PERSONAL use. Print them, frame them, gift them, make them your phone background.
They are all printable up to 8×10. (If you’d like a larger size, email me – jill at babyrabies dot com, and I’ll give you pricing info.)
Now, THESE pictures below are not the images for download. They are sized and sharpened for the web with my watermark on them.
You’ll want to click on the link below each picture to download that particular one. Look for the download icon in the bottom right corner (an arrow pointing down over a line). The pics available for download will not have a watermark on them, though I would appreciate if you send people my way if they ask where you got it.
We found one very rare white bluebonnet in a sea of blue!
Then I had some fun with my Lensbaby Spark. This is kinda what it’s like
to be drunk in a field of bluebonnets. I’d imagine.
I’d love if you help me spread the word by pinning this! xoxo
