We arrived in Texas late in the first week of the new year (now more than 2 months ago!!!) and I began work the following Monday. I've been sending my mom a picture of myself on my first day of school every fall since I left for college (prior to that, she took the picture herself). So it only seemed appropriate to text her a quick photo on my way out the door on the first day of my postdoc.

We like it so much that Geoff even requested a gelato pie for his birthday in February.
We formed a Wii Rock Band, have each other over for dinner, and go to the farmer's market every weekend.
The farmer's market in San Antonio is great because it is year round!! The growing season starts so early that there were strawberries at the market today. Between the farmer's market and all the "Made in Texas" food at the grocery store, it has been relatively easy to hit 50% local food. Not to mention, everything is bigger in Texas:
