World Traveler, This Girl

Tomorrow, I will no longer be "Alabama Alexandra." It's gonna be Texas time for this ragazza. Huntsville will always be my high school love, and for the foreseeable future it will be the "home" I visit every holiday. But, ya'll....I'm moving to Houston. Leaving bright and early tomorrow with my Momma to move into University. 

I'm mostly all packed. I'd say 92%. It's a little strange to look at your life smooshed all together into three suitcases. You kind of think "Huh. This is a few pieces of luggage. What does this say about me?" 

I moved to Huntsville, Alabama a little over 5 years ago. May 2007. Good heavens how time flies, and it drags! I love this city very much, and have grown immensely and learned so much. 

What will Houston, Texas bring? 

I will admit, I am nervous AND excited. Happy AND sad. Scared AND ready. God has definitely put it very clearly to me that I need to be studying opera at the University of Houston Moores School of Music; gotta listen to God!! (He does truly amazing things, and I am so excited to see where He takes me!)

Today I am finishing up some last minute packing and cleaning. I must vacate my room, which will be really strange for me. It won't really be my home anymore. I'll be a Texas chick. (Good thing I already use lotsa hairspray and wear dresses a lot ;) )

I'm not good at goodbyes...I am much better at see-you-later's. God has a purpose for taking me to Houston, and I can't wait to see what He does this year. 

Prayers for safe travel and adjustment would be lovely; I'm a little overwhelmed, but trusting in God. I might not be able to blog for a while, we'll see how crazy life gets. 

Hope ya'll have a great rest of the week!
xoxo, alexandra anne 

PS. If you live in Alabama, I already miss you way too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please please write me all the time, and visit ANY time. :) I love ya'll so so so so much! <3 <3 <3 Be back soon ;)


  1. I didn't know you lived in Alabama! I live in Anniston, which is about 2 and a half hours from Huntsville, I think!

    Anyways, I hope everything goes AWESOME for you at your new school. So excited for you! :) I will keep you in my prayers!

  2. It is weird packing up all of your stuff isn't it? Every time I move I have thoughts of like "Here it is. My life in a few boxes. Crazy."

  3. Eek! So exciting!! Welcome to H-town!

  4. Super exciting! New places are always fun :)
