After living the first 17 years of my life in San Antonio, I could not wait to explore the world beyond. My career took me to Dallas, Washington, D.C., Connecticut, New Jersey, Russia, Oklahoma and back to Dallas. In the two decades away, I grew weary of traveling to and from San Antonio to celebrate holidays and special events with family and friends.

Both my great-grandparents and grandparents owned homes in Southtown, just off of Presa. I was born there, too, so the view of the Tower of the Americas was never out of sight during family barbecues or driving down the street.

When I moved back, I moved to my grandmother’s house. I loved walking to restaurants, cafes, Fiesta events, and even doctors’ offices. The neighbors, old and new, knew my grandmother and my family, which was comforting. But it was too noisy, so after six months of barking dogs and sirens, I moved to the beautiful, green hills of Bulverde, where the humidity dips as you drive past Borgfeld Road.
