And there is no better way to embrace the dawn of the hot Houston summer than attending Free Press Summer Fest. Last year I attended FPSF for the first time. I had just moved back to Houston from Portland and was still a little naive about how hot it gets here (somehow I had forgotten?). I almost passed out. This year I was prepared and drank scads of water before even arriving at the park.
In all truth, Free Press means a lot to me because after moving back to Houston last year, it was the first moment that I felt truly glad to be back in Houston. Now, after being back in Houston for more than a year, I am even more thankful and thrilled to be living my life in Houston, Texas. It's pretty great.
