This blog is born because I need a creative place to merge my two lives.
I’m a little like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (that is if Dr. Jekyll was less of a doctor and more of an editor, and if Mr. Hyde liked pretty things, appreciated the art of the well written word, loved dogs and pretty much all cute critters, and was a Ms.)…
My professional life resides on the web. I work for a digital media company, and it’s my responsibility to see that what we publish is fabulous, intuitive, up-to-date, witty, well-researched and wonderful. I strive to be ahead of the curve, savvy, organized, poised, educated, informed, supportive, flexible, an under-promiser and an over-deliverer. I adore my professional life — it’s the place I always hoped to be. But no one in my professional life would believe my real life began in a barn.
In my real life I am a farm girl. I love the outdoors, I love critters, I love the way horse poop smells, I love cotton blossoms and I love dirt. I’m also a girly girl who loves to dress up, to take risks, who loves shoes, the color pink, stuff that is a slightly too blingy, and stuff that is a little (ok, a lot) over-priced. I love cows, all things Texas, cowboy boots, and cowboys.
And so, this blog is where I’ll attempt to hug all of these things tightly into one well-organized, country-lovin’ place. I can save the stuff I like, file away the things I want to come back to later, and have my own little cozy corner of the web where I can tuck away my special stuff.
P.S. All content on my site is mine unless I’ve credited otherwise, but if I’ve missed something, please let me know! I’ve shared and reposted some of my favorite stuff online with the most complimentary intent and don’t want credit for anything that’s not mine. In the same token, feel free to link to my blog or use my photos, but remember to give credit where credit is due!
