Montana: Sometimes There Are No Words

Every once in a while, there are moments when this girl wonders if the last few days have been real. Once such moment happened last week. I’d been on the road for work for several days and had seen some pretty amazing Montana moments along the way. As I was searching for the words to […]

Exploring Montana’s Rocky Mountains

Last weekend, I headed for the land of my birth: the Rocky Mountain Front of Montana. Because let’s face it, every once in a while a girl needs to make a break for it and head for home. Going home is like bringing peace to my heart. I’m not sure if it’s the land opening […]
