Friday Fav - Boot Scootin' Boogie

Happy Friday! As much as I want to write about this last week and how long and exhausting it's been, I've only got one thing on my mind ... one thing I've fallen for. Remember when I wrote this post about wandering away from the Wild West? Living on the east is getting easier and doesn't feel as far away from home (unless you check in with me on a bad day), but one thing that has been missing from my life way over here is the sense of country.

I tune into WPOC, only the greatest country radio station, and sing my heart out to Luke Bryan. I catch up with The Pioneer Woman as a way to think I'm still living life on the homestead. And of course, I search high and low for Groupons to adventures like horse back riding as a way to introduce Mike to the great outdoors. In all of these attempts to think I'm living life west coast style, I've been missing one thing ... cowboy boots. I know a girl can't boot scootin boogie her way through a country concert without boots. I know a girl can't whip up buttery cornbread without dosey doe-ing way through the kitchen wearing boots. And I definitely can't be expected to saddle up without some boots strapped on.

While I've been searching high and low for the perfect and affordable pair of red cowboy boots, my heart is now complete (well close ... still waiting for the dog). One of my favorite volunteers, Miss Linda, is an even bigger fan of cowboy boots than I am. This girl has over 20 pairs. Jealous? Me too! Well this week, something magical happened. Linda bagged up a pair of boots I have been drooling over since we met, and she said, "They are yours!" The kindness in her heart is bigger than anyone I've met. Linda, you'll never know how much these beauties mean to me, and how I can't wait to go dancing with you!
