Dear Austin, I wasn’t born here.  But I’m here now.  My family and I, we moved here because God loves you.  And I want you to know that.   I’m so amazed at how wonderfully strange and diverse you are, from the farm silos in Hutto, to the suburbs of Cedar Park, the bungalows of midtown, and the strange upside…
