The top 16 of 2016

  I figured I’d take this time to share with you Sixteen Highlights of 2016. Narrowing it down to only 16 was a lot harder than you’d think! The things meant a lot to me, so in no particular order here we go!   I won my first ranch roping. And it was the first one I’d […]

Portraits of the Family

The cowboy’s brother and SIL have a couple really cute kids. And every year they let me take a family photo. Corralling two busy boys is a challenge though, but we do the best we can! They really love Kelsey’s horse, Polmol. He is their buddy. Here is what happened at this year’s session.

From the Branding Pen

We just finished our annual Father’s Day Branding.  We got to it a day late because it rained on Saturday, but Sunday proved to be a gorgeous day! A nice breeze, lots of sunshine and good people, made the day even better! My family came up from Texas and we got to have a nice visit. Plus […]

Family Foto Friday

Occasionally, people call me to take their family photo. And when they do I get all giddy and excited and my mind starts running in 1000 directions, planning what I’ll do and how I’ll have fun with them. Sometimes I meet them, and everything I thought I wanted to do gets thrown out the window. […]

Thankful Thursday

I was really bad and skipped last week. I didn’t mean to, it just happened.  Life. Just. Happened.  But this week I’d like to take a minute to tell you what I’m thankful for now. Sunsets. And the fact that I can see them.        And good horses that are dependable and fun to ride:  […]

Just Plain Punchy

I discovered “Just Plain Punchy”, when I was shopping for a friend’s baby. I knew I wanted something different, something that would embody the cowgirl spirit, and I ran on to the adorable stuff that Kristi makes in the Ranch Wives Association group on Facebook. I knew I’d found what I was looking for. I’ve […]

Thursday Thanks

I try to always make November a month dedicated to gratitude. After all, I have an enormous amount of things I should be thankful for.  In years past, I’ve done 30 days of thanks, or at least one post where I will list the things I’m thankful for. This year, I’m going to give thanks […]

Back to School for the First Time

My wife and I graduated from Purdue in 2002 and 2003. Now in the fall of 2015 we are going back to school for the first time in a long time via our son heading into kindergarten. The idea of school isn’t new to him as he had two full years of preschool, but now […]

Lessons learned from my Dad

My sister and I were blessed to grow up in a Christian home with a mom and dad that loved us and were (and remain) engaged in our lives. And since today is Fathers Day, I thought I would share with you a few of the many lessons I’ve learned from my dad…
