I've discovered a new blog. Linda told me about it awhile ago but only in the last week have I explored it somewhat. It's The Pioneer Woman. This woman is a wonderful and funny writer. She was a total city girl who married a cowboy. Now she lives on the cattle ranch that's been in his family for generations. There is so much to explore on her website it can seem a little intimidating at first. She has several blogs: about ranch life, cooking, gardening, homeschooling, and even a photography blog where she helps you learn about taking pictures. Her site has been nominated for the annual "Bloggies" award in the category of Best Writing. (How anybody has organized such an award in the vast oceans of the international blogging community, I can't even imagine!) Her home page displays a slideshow of photos from her most recent posts of each blog. Just select the tab that interests you most and off you go.
She has several stories archived as well. I stumbled upon the story of how she met and fell in love with her husband, whom she calls Marlboro Man. It's a fun read. She calls it: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. It's like reading a romance novel but it's their real story. You can read Chapters 1-31 here in an easy continuous fashion but then you have to switch over to here to click on the titles and open up the remaining chapters. But be warned.... She leaves you totally hanging at the end of each short chapter that it's nearly impossible to quit reading!
