The Year of Turning 30
Well folks, this is it. This year is something that I’ve both partially dreaded and looked forward to…it’s the year I officially celebrate three decades of life. (Yikes, right?) When I was younger, I always thought of 30 as kind of old. (I have obviously since changed my tune). The women I knew who were […]
My Montana Mama
It had been a while since I’d been home. Not the home where I lay my head every night, but the place where I was born and raised…a little town that sits in the shadow of the Rocky Mountain Front called Augusta, Montana. And since it was Mother’s Day last weekend, I decided to pull […]
Last week, I packed my bags and headed for my childhood home. During the two-hour drive over the river, across the mountain pass and through the woods to my folks, I had an excited anticipation of just being home. My schedule this summer and fall (between weddings, adventures and daily life) got the best of […]
Why Do You Love Montana?
Oh, hi. First things first, it’s good to see you here. No matter where you’re reading from, I hope you enjoy the adventures we take together each week…thank you for letting me share my little piece of Montana with you. I love it.
My Montana Love List
I love Montana. As in I totally heart it. It’s a place that I don’t know if I’ll ever get enough of… The simplest way for me to describe it is like having a crush that never goes away. And on this crisp, fall day, I’d like to share with you a few reasons that […]
29 Years of Montana
Guess what. Somebody just had a birthday…a birthday where they turned 29 years old. Now I realize that 29 is not “old,” but I almost can’t believe how quickly time has flown. It seems like just yesterday that I had messy hair, was missing my two front teeth and the highlight of my day was […]
Montana River Guides…An Auction for First Descents
Ever wanted to go on a date with a river guide? There’s something about river guides that is adorable, scruffy and maybe even a tad…dare I say it, sexy. And if you’re even a smidgen like me, I’m guessing that you’ve toyed with the idea of being whisked away (at least for one night) by […]
Montana Bus Hunt: It’s On
This year, our friends at Montana Office of Tourism decided to go big or go home, placing stellar photos from Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park on buses throughout Chicago, Minneapolis and Seattle. And to that we say, BRAVO. Because when you’ve got scenery like Montana, it needs to be shared. To add to […]
Montana Men: I’m on a Mission
It’s almost summer here in Montana. Okay, not really, but it is coming quickly…either way, summer is on my mind. And because I love it so much, I feel like I should set a goal for “Summer 2011.” My quest is this…to find the cutest of the cute, handsomest of the handsome and manliest of […]
Montana Girls…Born Tough, with a Side of Frill.
*This week’s blog isn’t really about an event or specific experience. Instead, it’s just me telling you a story. Don’t worry, we’ll get back to business next week.* I’m a true, blue, through and through Montana girl. I was raised on the Rocky Mountain Front or as many like to refer to it: the east […]
