Have you ever dreamed of being a cowboy or cowgirl? As someone who grew up in the Mountain West, I’ve always found it easy to idealize cowboys and cowgirls. In fact, I’ve known a few in my time. All that being said, I’m not sure that I could actually be one. I’m sort of afraid of horses 🙂
While I am a bit nervous when I think about being a cowgirl, I am pretty sure that I would love it when I got used to it. Especially if Mr. Blogthings was riding along side with me. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to wake up with a beautiful view of the countryside, especially surrounded by animals. Also, I love cowboy and cowgirl food like chili.
I’m not ready to sign up for horseback riding lessons yet, but I can live out my cowgirl dreams in a few ways. First of all, since I live in Texas now, it’s totally reasonable to put on some cowgirl boots whenever I feel like it. And visiting a ranch? Sign me up, especially if there’s some good beer, live music, and dinner involved. Or if I just want a taste of the cowgirl life, I’m happy to go on a hike somewhere out in the mountains. Just standing out and overlooking a vista can make me feel like I’m in the Wild West.
