Dallas Gals (Gallas?)

I am a firm believer that you do not have to travel internationally in order to blog about your experience. All travel is wonderful and exciting, regardless of the destination.

Last weekend I made my way back to Texas for Galentine’s Day with my bestie, Liza. This is an annual tradition of ours, and this year was the sixth celebration!

The weekend was full of fun girl time and delicious Texas food. As you can see, Liza is a cat mama and has two sweet fur babies that I love to snuggle with any chance I get. We did a lot of fun things, but honestly this photo below best encapsulates our weekend.

Just a couple of kittens!

If you get the chance to visit Dallas, there are a few musts. The first obviously being Whataburger. I could tell you that I didn’t eat there every day of my trip, but I learned from Harry Potter that I mustn’t tell lies.

(That spicy ketchup though 🙌🏻 10/10 every time.)

Another fun activity is visiting downtown McKinney. It has the quaintness and charm of a small Texas town, but also has incredible local restaurants, coffee, and boutiques.

We got cupcakes from Sprinkles, and ate brunch at The Rustic-a favorite spot!

Are you sensing a theme here? No one can lose weight in Texas, and honestly why would you want to? The food is a love language, and you are being blessed to speak it.

For as many times as I have gotten trapped overnight in Dallas, the city has never lost its charm. Each time I visit, I discover a new part of town that I fall in love with. Food, shopping, tattoos, movies-what’s not to love?

Until next time, #TexasForever 💙💛

It’s All Happening

So here’s the thing.

On my half birthday I made a decision. I took a step forward.

With six months left in my twenties, I applied for my visa to move to Australia.

It’s been my dream for over half of my life. This is it. This is the year. It’s time.

Fast forward a few days, and I am sitting on a plane waiting to travel to Dallas for Galentines. I check my email and there it is. The good news I was hoping for.

My visa has been approved.

I move in six months.
