Live Your Truth

Write Your Truth I saw this quote this morning on Instagram and it really hit close to home. Life is not like an instagram profile! It's messy and most days like a rollercoaster. As much as I love my instagram layout and keeping things light & airy with a touch of organic, I have to admit…

A cattleman’s wife

It was 2013 and we were going non-stop with our kiddos. They were mature enough at this time that we could pack up & go last minute and we did. We went everywhere, Lake Amistad, down the Rio Grande, Seminole Canyons, it was outdoor fun! About this time, I was yearning for more from this life. I…
