Happy Birthday, Someday Cowgirl!

It’s a bit surreal to me, but it has already been a whole year since I began The Someday Cowgirl.

After writing about special trips, recipes, holidays and favorite places, I have to admit that I have never enjoyed a hobby in my entire life as much as I love writing this blog……..well, except for when I was a high school show choir superstar…………jazz hands!

I know……drama, but it’s true.

And the crazy part is that it took someone else to suggest that I do this.  Someone who sees what I do in the workplace each day.  One day Wilma and I were working on an upcoming campaign and she said, “Jen, you should write a blog. You would be really good at it.”

Really, what the heck would I write about?   I did minor in journalism and have wondered what it would've been like to have taken that career path, but a blog?  And one year later, I have a beautiful online journal to reflect upon.

So, a big thank you goes to all of my friends and family who support me.  I love all of your comments and post suggestions – Wilma, Melinda, Yvonne, Nitja, Gina, Mom, my brother, Dad, Stephanie, Gail, Carla, Aunt Marion, Sally Oh, Jamie and the most wonderful husband in the world (who consequently always has to wait to eat his dinner until after I take the blog pictures).

I do realize that all of this may sound a bit Academy Award acceptance speech–ish,  but to be honest, I really do feel like a red carpet gal every time one of you tries a recipe that I’ve posted,  comments on a decorating idea, or tells me you were just checking in to “see what Jen is up to.”

Thank you and keep the comments coming!
