Things I'll Miss: The View

So we all know by now that Dallas isn't really the city for me, but that's not to say there aren't things here I'll miss when we leave for DC. Here's just one of them: the view from our front patio.

We'll have a view in DC, too (yay!), but the drama of the Texas sky isn't something that can be replicated on the east coast. And although my city slicker sky views here pale in comparison to the vistas in New Mexico I knew before them, they're still pretty amazing. From our front patio over the last two and a half years, I've captured the Dallas skyline in some everyday moments, as well as a few dramatic ones. See for yourself:

August 2007
This was taken just as we moved in to show our place to my family, but I like it because it's so classic August in Dallas. Looking at it you can almost feel the heat and haze in the air.

December 2007
Our nighttime sunset view. So many drinks on this patio watching the city twinkle in front of us.

June 2009
Summer storm coming in over Dallas

August 2009
Pre-storm... so spooky/beautiful

October 2009
Incredibly dramatic before those clouds opened up


  1. Wow your photos are amazing, I especially love the last few dramatic shots!

    We're visiting Dallas (from the UK) on our honeymoon this November, even thought that's still a way off these pictures have me super excited!

    I hope everything goes well with your move! x

  2. ohhh the last pictures are super creepy! I hope you're not up to your eyeballs in boxes (or of you are they are fully packed and well labeled boxes!).

  3. Wow that is beautiful, especially the stormy ones. I have never been to Texas it looks like a beautiful city. Good luck getting ready for such a big move.

  4. Maggie, I love those storm photos!! Weather caught on film is so dramatic-I'd just prefer to see it rather than be in it ;)

  5. I would so miss that view, too! But, luckily, DC will have some nice ones for you, too.

  6. We have a similar view of the Dallas skyline, which is attractive enough you can forget what a pathetic downtown we have.


C'mon, make my day...
