Things have been hectic over here at Red Dirt Style, well over here at the Henderson household in general. We’ve got a secret project that we’ve been working on for two months. You better settle in, this is a loooonnnnng post. 🙂
For those of you who don’t know, I am a bonafide Red Dirt Girl. My roots run deep in Oklahoma. I was born in OKC, but when I was 2, we moved to Nashville. We spent 9 years in Nashville before returning to Oklahoma in the sixth grade. I stayed there through my freshman year of college at Oklahoma State (Go Pokes!). Knowing I wanted to pursue a degree in Music Business, I packed up a U-Haul and made the trek BACK to Nashville to attend Belmont University.
While there, I fell in love with a cute Texan boy and we got married and started our family out with a bang – TWINS! It was really hard being so far away from family with newborn twins and not an ounce of help, but we did it. Not long after the boys turned 3 years old, we found out about baby #3!! Whoa! We decided that the best move for us was to get closer to family. Luckily, Kelly was able to keep his job and work from home once we made the move.
We stumbled upon the perfect house in the cutest little town of Royse City, TX. We knew NOTHING about this town and didn’t know a soul. We fell in love with our town, our little 1.5 acres for the boys to run on and the short commutes to see family on a whim.
We welcomed Jack Bennett into the world a few months later and became involved in the boys’ school and baseball, meeting new friends very quickly.
After four years in Texas, a lot has changed. My mom who was 2 hours away is now 8. Kelly’s parents who were 4 hours away, are now 10. We still have my sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins nearby, but we just don’t see them as much as we thought we would. What we have come to realize is that while we love Texas and have enjoyed every second of the four years spent here, we really miss what we left behind in Tennessee.
It’s still hard for us to believe this is actually happening, but the Hendersons are moving back to NASHVILLE! Eeekkkk!!!!
We are excited to reconnect with our sweet TN friends, business contacts for Kelly and family of ours that is there! Kelly’s parents have moved to Nashville recently and his brother is still there. I also have some Blair cousins nearby that have a son Knox and Ryder’s age!
This time we will be living south of Nashville in a tiny town called Eagleville, right down the road from our Blair cousins and a short drive from our friends/family in Nolensville, Spring Hill and Lewisburg.
We will 100% miss Royse City and the friends we have made along the way. Knox and Ryder attended such a wonderful school with fantastic teachers and friends. We are grateful for every person we came to know in the past four years.
We are looking forward to having lots of visitors soon!
