We’ve had a pretty mild winter so far — there’s been a skiff of snow here and there. The last couple days- including now as I type this, we’ve got wind swirling and snow falling for the first time. But we’re halfway through February and almost out of Winter, so I won’t complain at all! […]

Circle Z Guest Ranch

San Rafael Valley ride, Circle Z

If you’ve ever dreamed of riding in a place that looks like it could be from a Western Film, then you’ve got to get to Patagonia, Arizona, to Circle Z Guest Ranch.  The ranch was started in 1926 and is the original guest ranch in Arizona!  It’s everything you think a ranch in the Southwest […]

#ShotOniPhone

Earlier this year I was blessed to have been featured by Apple for their new #shotoniphone series. It was so flipping cool, and for sure an honor. I’m not really doing anything special with my iPhone — I’m just a girl who carries it around and shares glimpses into her life.     #ShotoniPhone by… […]

An Incredible Journey

A Tough Calling, an incredible journey, Gorilla Glass, cowgirl, the south dakota cowgirl

Sometimes life seems surreal; as though we are just observers from afar, more than active participants. The possibilities and dreams of a child, especially for a young girl, can be so far out of reach that they can’t be imagined; even with some help from circumstance. This story isn’t about a child born into family […]

WPRA World Finals

Avie, wpra world finals, waco texas

Hi friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared anything here. It’s not that I don’t have plenty to say, but that I’ve been writing other places. I’m writing for the American Quarter Horse Association, for Ag Week and still plugging away for Cavvy Savvy as time permits. The year seems to have flown […]

A Road Trip to the BBR Finals

I know I’m only about 4.5 months late in posting this run. I’ve been busy, trying to grow in my horsemanship, and grow my photography and writing business as well. And of course I’m trying to fill my WPRA permit. The rodeos have been fun, and I’m learning a lot. My nerves are leaving me, and […]
