|The Someday Cowgirl ready for the day's adventure|
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!
