My Favorite Things: Country Summer Edition

Red dirt and wheat fields, corn husks and whiskey,

Hound dogs and shotguns and folks feeling frisky.

Bass ponds and camp fires in summer or spring,

These are a few of my favorite things!

Big jacked up pickups and mud holes and swimming,

Dirt roads and tractors, the sun as it’s dimming.

Cat fish on trot lines and no phones to ring,

These are a few of my favorite things!

Girls in their cutoffs and old Tony Llama’s

The rebel flag waving, ignoring our Mommas

Flip cup and beer pong, so drunk that we sing

These are a few of my favorite things!

When the snow comes,

When the beer’s gone,

When I’m feeling sad….

I simply remember my favorite things

Then I don’t feel so bad.

AND – you’re welcome! 😉

Hope this gave you a little smile!

If you have a verse to add – leave it below! 😉

OkieGirl Visited New Mexico

Around this time last year I was spontaneously invited on a soul-searching road trip to New Mexico with a friend.

How could I possibly say no? I couldn’t.

We set off for a place she had been many times, where here Grand Pop lived an off the grid lifestyle that she told me all about on our way.

It was a blessing to be able to share these amazing places that were filled with stories and emotion.

This was more than just some road trip to both of us. She needed to find closure and visit her grandpa’s burial, and I needed to free my mind.

 

This was an AMAZING place to free my mind.

Looking over this amazing lake, I felt closer to my God than I ever have before. I felt that everything was 100% zen and that everything made sense. For the first time in a long time I remembered HOW much there was in the world that I have yet to experience. This exact day was the day that I started LIVING every day. Adventures aren’t always just fun little jaunts…sometimes they are much, much more.

I hope that some day you all find a place, or many places, that give you the amazing feeling and experience that this place did for me. I am forever hunting this experience again, and again.

Don’t forget how short this life is, and how many places are left to see!
