I've been ... Continue Reading

Cowboy Truett aka Mr. Attitude

Mr. Attitude

In 2010, I took photos of a lot of faces but when I think about all of them, this one of Truett sticks out the most.  I remember it so well because he had such a bad attitude that day.  I know now that it was just him getting ready to be the rotten age of 4.   Many of you know this age yes?  They get mad when they don't get their way.  They want ...

A Hot Coors Light

2010 is almost over and with that, I find myself reflecting on the things I've experienced and accomplished throughout the year.  It's been a great year, however, I did find myself having mental exhaustion that affected me offline and on.  It wasn't until recently that I nursed that exhaustion and so now, with a fresh outlook, I look forward to ...

Vintage Days, Vintage Looks

My husband and son were meant to live back in the olden days.  Not this gal tho, no sir-ree!  I just assume to live in the day of the iphone and airplanes. Anyways, don't cowboys and their gear just look better vintage style?  It's like it takes you back to those John Wayne days, the days where people worked hard and had values.  When things ...

There were lots of great entries and I know the judges had a hard time deciding who should win.  There were quite a few that didn't follow all the rules but we tried to cut everyone slack this first time around.  Next ...
