Cowboy Boots to High Heels

What an incredible weekend filled with love and good friends.  I made the transition from cowboy boots to four inch high heels.  I spent the whole day at the Tulsa State Fair watching some of my kids show.  I ran into my favorite Starbucks in Tulsa, changed out of my stock show clothes into wedding attire.  It was an impressive transformation, to say the least.

Last night I got to see one of my oldest 4-H friends say her I do’s.  Jessie Long and I have been friends since we were 13 years old.  It was love at first sight; we had the same last name and kind of resembled each other.  During our 4-H career, we had almost everyone believing that we were cousins of some sort.  We had a lot of fun playing that card on people.  We served on the same district officer team and formed this almost sister like relationship.  Some people in your life are unique and rare, and to me—Jessie is just that.  No one will ever be like her; she is so unique and unusual.  She embraces her bold personality, and it truly is captivating.

Chers to you Jessie, may you, and your husband have many years of happiness; may the love you feel today grow with each day that passes.
