this one’s easy…everyone should know what and where this is.

”If a man’s from Texas, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, why embarrass him by asking?” – Travel writer John Gunther
…there’s no doubt that this sums up the ideals of most Texans.

I’m pretty sure everyone who meets me knows that I am a Texan within the first 10 minutes…maybe even 5.
The last three pictures are from my cousins peanut farm in Plains, Texas.
I am Texan through and through, loud, and proud! I love boots, trucks, and the biggest sky in the world.
The last 4 pictures are all of Austin. Some of my fav memories..
Understand that Texas is big. I took a lot of road trips in college and didn’t really realize how big my state was until I was on the open road for over 8 hours and still on the same TX highway. It happens quite regularly actually.
If you haven’t been here, you need to go!
On route 66!
However, it doesn’t matter where in Texas you are from, you always greet a fellow Texan as a friend. We love our state, and in turn, we love each other. This has most definitely been the case since moving to Germany. Just this week, I met two wonderful women whose husbands work in my husbands squadron and we all felt like kindred spirits within the time it took to drink a cup of coffee with each other! I don’t know anyone else who feels this way about the place they are from. In fact, I’m pretty sure my Texas pride creeps my friends out. lol.
most of my summer days were spent this way
Sunset at my parents best friends house. (down the street from home)
This is Rudy’s dog May, watching the boys shoot guns.
It doesn’t matter today though…I don’t care who I freak out. March 2 is Texas Independence Day. On this day 176 years ago, a group convened at Washington-on-the-Brazos to craft a declaration of independence from Mexico. From that moment, the Republic of Texas was born. Happy 176th birthday to my favorite place in the world!
Bluebonnets are the Texas state flower.
This is a picture of the groomsmen from the very first wedding I shot.
Don’t be jealous!
In San Antonio on the riverwalk.
The last 3 pictures are from the camp that I worked at during a couple of summers in college. It’s also where James and I met. 🙂
My alma mater
4th of July in Bridgeport
This was my favorite game. Don’t ask me who we played or if we won…just look at that sky!
My friends took me to the Museum of Texas History for my 21st birthday.
So since I am not there and obviously can’t take pictures from here, I would love to celebrate by sharing with you some oldies but goodies that I’ve captured in the past. It is flashback Friday after all, right?
This is most definitely posed..but funny none the less. From Camp Eagle!
I’ll never forget the sound of a ReD RAIDER TOUCHDOWN!
Good times with good friends. In a barn…where else?

Howdy, I’m Jen!
