Dear Corpus Christi,

When I moved here over 9 years ago, I thought it was temporary.  I came here for refuge and for safety.  I came here to live with my mom for the first time since I was three.  Even though I couldn't stand it, I have to say that you've brought me many blessings.  A degree, a career, a marriage.  Even though I've wanted to leave you for a long time, I guess it just wasn't the right time.

Today is my last day here, and I guess I'm feeling a few different things at one time.  I want you to know exactly how I feel about you.  Let's countdown the top 4 things I won't miss.  And because I want to say goodbye on a high note, we'll countdown the top 4 things I will.

What I definitely won't miss:
#4.  Tourists

#3.  Hurricane Season

#2.  Giant Flying Roaches

#1.  Humidity

What I definitely will:
#4:  Fresh Seafood

#3.  Laid-back Lifestyle

#2.  The beach

#1.  My loved ones

Please take good care of the family and friends I'm leaving behind.  Especially this guy.

Until we meet again,


  1. ***HUGS***
