All that and a bag of chips

I was born and raised a Texas gal. My father is a cutting horse trainer and my mother is a teacher. I have been blessed, to say the very least, my entire life. When I say “blessed” I do not mean that we had money; far from it. I was, and still am, blessed to have grown up around amazing animals, hard work, and consistent love and support. When I count my blessings, I tend to count my family twice because I am adopted. That’s a whole blog post in and of itself, to be continued!

When left my hometown in 2012 to venture into the vast lands of Oklahoma, I found my home as a student at Oklahoma State University for four glorious years. I graduated in May of 2016 with my Bachelor’s degree in Media and Strategic Communications with a minor in Psychology. I miss Stillwater every single day…but I took a piece of it with me back to Texas when I left!

I met Clint at OSU and the more I learn about him, the more I am 100% positive that God crafted that man to fill every void in my life. We have been together for almost four years, and in May of 2017 we are getting hitched! He ropes, works hard, accepts my shopping habits, pours me my fourth glass of wine after a long day, sometimes rubs my feet, lets my dogs sleep in the bed and pushes me to be the best version of myself in every way possible (I count him twice, too). Ladies, get you a Clint.

When we moved to Springtown, I was over the moon about our new jobs and the house we bought, but even then I knew something was missing. Every day I wake up and go to work, come home, make dinner, feed my chickens, tend to my garden and hit the hay, then I wake up and do it all over again. I started to become terrified at the thought of becoming complacent to this routine. Then I realized what was missing was friends. I needed girlfriends! I had amazing friends in college, and they are still, and always will be, so close to my heart. But life happens and we have all gone separate ways and jumped headlong into different endeavors. So how do you make friends when you’re a busy 25-year-old woman in a new environment? Thus, the reason I decided to start this blog.

I already love writing. In fact, I feel as though I am better at writing than outright vocal communication, so why not make a positive thing out of it? I am hoping to reach out to women who are positive, encouraging, genuine, and have a love for fashion and mimosas on patios. I think this blog is a good first step in the right direction. My posts will mostly consist of fashion, western heritage, music, my animals, handmade goods, wine, love, turquoise, travel, food, and all things beautiful. I am equally more than willing to support fellow bloggers, so please, leave comments, utilize my contact information, and let’s be friends.

  1. I’m right there with you sister. I’m thankful for my life, boyfriend, job, beautiful new tiny home, my doggies, healthy as a mule. Just feel kinda empty and it’s because I had so much LOVE within and fun with YOU and all our girlfriends! Now without, even with all the stuff I’m so thankful for, it still feels a bit empty without all the gal pals. (And what’s really funny is I always thought I wasn’t much of a “girlfriend” type of girl, but I am lol). Great post & your blog is so cool! Miss you! ❤️

    1. We did have some of the best times, I wouldn’t trade them for the world! It makes me so happy to see everyone succeeding in all that they’re doing. I just miss the company, the getting ready, and the 2am curdy’s! Love and miss you, I can’t wait to come see your store!


  2. You are a fantastic writer, hard work surely does pay off! Congrats on being a newly-wed too!! Sounds like you have an amazing family. Just like you, I’m struggling in a new town to make girlfriends. It’s really hard and can be so lonely at times, but there’s gotta be a light at the end of the tunnel. Hope to connect with you and looking forward to seeing more of your blog posts! ❤
