Over 16 years ago I drove into Dallas. My youngest sister and her family were moving here from Utah and had asked me to help drive the family and some of their things down. My first impression was about how flat the land was! I would guess that 99% of Dallas is on flat prairie.
My sister finally convinced me that the economy in Dallas was better than the small town where I was living in Utah. Plus I was very bored. I had lived and owned a business in Baltimore a few years earlier and small town Utah was really boring me. In March 1996 I finally moved here.
I never thought I would like it here, but I do. There is so much to do in the area. It seems that every weekend I could do something different in Dallas and still not see all there is to see. So even though I've been here almost 16 years I am still Discovering Dallas.
The things I see and experience in this great city will be a new blog feature. Thanks for the blog post idea Anne Marie in Philly!
