Happy 59th to my mom! Crazy how time always fly by so quickly. Moving to Austin has put a strain on our relationship. A lot of it is on my end. I just don’t tell her a lot of detail of what’s going on in my life and what I’m doing. Like she was surprised when I came back home for her bday with new tattoos or the fact that I took a permanent job in Austin and moved downtown in the city. Sometimes she takes it as I don’t want her deep in my life, but that’s far from the truth. I just don’t share a lot of things with people. I’ll put it on my instagram or other social media and that’s about it for sharing. Both my parents don’t utilize social media, so I need to directly talk to them more. Always will have max respect for her and the impact she has and continue to have in my life. I go back to Austin on Sunday and I’m dreading it. Anyways, she wanted to go to the casino, so I gave her some bills and that what we did. Great to be around the family and catching up with them all.

I miss this fury beast so much! My dad picked me up from track practice in my sophomore year and surprised me with this bundle of joy. Hate to say it, but I was more excited to see Cassie than seeing my brothers again. Probably one of the hardest decisions was to leave Cassie back in Louisiana with my parents when I made the move to Texas. For Cassie, Louisiana is home and she have a a huge yard to run around and she’ll never have to spend a moment alone. If she was to live with me she would be stuck in a apartment until I get to walk her and be alone most if the day while I was away at work or whatever. Her staying was hard, but it was for the best for her.

After the Casino my dad took my mom out on a date, so a couple of my friends came along and hanged with Jamie and I on Bourbon Street! It was a legit evening with a lot of laughs. Jamie is not shy, so she warmed up to everyone pretty easily. Left around 1am ish.
