Landa Park Engagement Session in New Braunfels, Texas
April 8, 2019
Last weekend was a doozy! We originally were supposed to go down to New Braunfels and spend the last few days of the kids’ spring break looking around for houses, checking out the schools and showing the kids how amazing Texas is.
And then … Randy said he didn’t want to move to Texas right now because he wants to live near his dad and brother (and his brother’s family) in Florida. If you’ll remember, back in December I had announced that we were moving to Texas and everything I’ve done since then has been to facilitate that idea. But a few weeks ago, Randy broke down with me and told me that moving to Texas wasn’t close enough to be with his brother as he battles brain cancer and he really wants to be even closer.
So all my planning and research the last five months was instantly tossed out the window so that we could support our family (and I’d do it again in a heartbeat, no questions asked). We plan to move on June 2nd, and we still don’t know exactly where we’re going to live on June 3rd. We already sold our house (which happened within a couple hours of our first open house, with a cash offer … which is a whole other crazy story for another day!) … so it’s been a whole wild few weeks.
Anyway – the trip to New Braunfels last week turned into just a mini vacation, and during the trip I had the chance to hang out with Ron and Scott for their engagement session at Landa Park! It was so much fun walking around the park with them, chatting and talking about their life together in Houston and their upcoming wedding next spring in Palm Springs (which I can’t wait for!). We saw all kinds of crazy wildlife – including a water mocassin, a couple red-eared sliders, crawfish, deer and all kinds of birds and ducks.
Texas is wild, y’all.
I’m so stoked to kick off this week with Ron and Scott’s Landa Park engagement session in New Braunfels!
