I love you San Antonio, and will miss you. I've lived in over 10 cities in my life, and I have to say that you have been my favorite. I loved you from the start and will continue to love you from afar. You have so much to offer, and there are so many reasons to love you. Let me name a few.
You have the most affordable home prices of any big city out there. Your museums and libraries have given me and my kids many good times. You have a great Children's Museum and zoo which my kids have enjoyed over and over. I love your downtown and Riverwalk. I have loved playing outside in shorts in January. I have loved the Mexican food. Our family really enjoyed watching the building of the LDS San Antonio Temple. We love this temple. It will still be our temple, but now we are 2.5 hours away, instead of 25 minutes. I have loved the large Hispanic influence. It is wonderful to see the language of my heritage be celebrated, instead of devalued like in other places where I have lived. I love to see Spanish street names and signs written in Spanish.
We will really miss you, San Antonio, but we will come back to visit. We will come to the temple and to visit family. I'm very excited about living in Corpus Christi, a city that has a lot to offer as well. It's a smaller city, with less traffic. You can get just about anywhere in the city in about 20 minutes. And, the beach is only 15 minutes away. I don't think I need any other reason than that to already love Corpus.
Thank you, San Antonio, for five years of great times and wonderful memories. I will think of you often.
