You know I never thought…

I never thought I’d look back on a Texas memory with a fond heart, but as a Dixie Chicks two-step song started playing my thoughts drifted away…

We were three girls looking to stir up trouble, and it was just the small town in East Texas where Matthew McConaughey grew up. The place we found was like nothing any city girl like myself ever thought existed. Wooden dance floor encircled by picket fence railing, cowboy boots, and christmas lights strung across the ceiling. Swept off my feet in swirling spins, you could feel no less than divinely feminine. Though there were no dance cards, mine was full.

I can still hear the sound of the boots shuffling and skuttling on the worn wooden dance floor.
