Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]

Weekend Cowgirl Update

Well, it has been 33 days since my accident and I am doing so much better. I won’t bore you with all the details except to say I had never ever had a broken bone of any kind which is really great. I can now say I never ever want a broken bone again. Evidently, when […]

Good-by To Our Dear Friend

Cancer finally won…I don’t think so. No, cancer did not really win. In the end it did take our friend from us, but so much more can be said about his battle. He was able to spend several months in the place he loved best. He was able to be in his beloved Montana. No one […]

Our Best Friend’s Hat

Our best friend is still wearing his hat. As I told you on December 13th he did not ask to wear this hat, but he was given it anyway. His family and friends did not want him to wear this hat. In spite of everything he has worn it with dignity, strength and has been […]

Forever Friendships

I am feeling a little melancholy today. Thinking of of all my childhood friends I have not seen forever. The small rural area I grew up in was a wonderful place to grow up. Everyone was a friend. Everyone knew everyone. Every-one’s parents knew each other. We could leave our house and bike around town […]

My Friend’s Hat

This is our best friend’s new hat. He doesn’t want it. His family does not want it. I don’t want it. Nobody wants it. This hat has changed his world. It has changed his family’s world. It has changed his friend’s world. It has changed our world. This hat about says it all. Cancer really does suck.

Last Summer Fling

Just got back from a quick girl’s trip to celebrate the last of summer. I love the water and love summer. One of the things I miss most in the winter is not being able to lay by a pool and swim. Took a few days to get in the last summer swim with friends and […]

Girl’s Road Trip

Yesterday I took a day road trip with a good friend. We drove to see a dear friend who lives in a small country town nearly two hours away. The town has 4,000 people with many beautiful old homes from the 1800s sprinkled here and there. It has a relaxed lazy feel, although I must say that […]

Sentimental Sunday

I can actually vividly remember the day this photo was taken. My grandmother had a small 13th birthday party for me with a few of my friends. My grandmother was in very poor health, but still took the time to make sure I had a special day. She was the sweetest lady and I still miss her to […]

Girls Lake Trip

Nothing makes life better than a girl’s trip to the lake. We had lot’s of fun and were lucky that the weather actually provided us with two wonderful sunny days.  This was great way to start the summer season by spending a few days just boating and swimming all day with a little shopping on the side! Of course, the best part is enjoying time […]

Best Retro Texaco Gas Station Ever!

When traveling on our “Girl Trip” Sunday (see previous post) we found this darling antique retro gas station. It was absolutely the cutest gas station I have ever seen. It was an original filling station from the 50s. Someone had painstakingly restored it back to the 50s. It is a full service station and pristine. I […]

Flea Market Girl’s Trip

A college friend and I traveled for a day trip to see a special friend who has recently moved about two hours away. We had the most fun ever! It was wonderful to laugh, tell old stories and spend time together. By the end of the day we had literally laughed all day long. We even chuckled when we […]

Mississippi Porch

I love front porches and the chairs/rockers that they display. I especially love when beautiful colors have been used whether it be the wooden floors, shutters or the chairs/rockers. When on a girl’s trip, a few years ago, I took a quick photo of this house which had been converted into a restaurant. We had made reservations to dine […]

After Thanksgiving we had friends come visit us at the farm. My good friend disappeared into the hills to paint all day as she is an artist. Her husband set […]
