"Jessica's obviously really, really talented. Her material floated to the top because of the quality of her presentation and her material."
~Charlie Seeman,Executive Director of the Western Folklife Center
"Jessica's ability to take a common, everyday experience, such as cooking dinner or doing laundry, and put a ranch life spin on it has made her poetry popular with both men and women alike. She has also drawn the attention of a younger crowd that is searching for a grounded lifestyle that is real in a fast-paced, computerized society."
~Jennifer Denison, Western Horseman
"When Jessica writes poetry about the buckaroo lifestyle she is writing from a firsthand knowledge of the things she has actually seen or experienced. This puts her apart from many other western poets that tend to glamorize or write about the way they 'think it was.' When you add this hands-on knowledge to her keen, observant eye and sensitive nature, you come up with a very unique individual that can write poetry that truly touches the souls of those of us who have lived it and also those that wish they could have."
~Mackey Hedges, author of Last Buckaroo and Shadow of the Wind
Thinking of my Paisley friends this morning while heading into camp. So glad Mindy is cooking and love my feather from the Norris ladies ♡
This was me on Easter...
That look you get when people ask if you are the cook and you tell them nope, you're one of the cowboys ;) I'm in from camp to run a few errands, pick up the boys and the cook! So excited for the crew to get here this weekend and for round up to get underway!

Well casing broke on one of the windmills so I'm learning to drive our other water truck!

I'm so excited to see these little guys! Sam has been in the middle of managing a temporary fence crew to re build the traps necessary for round up. I've been trying to help out with getting the cattle where they need to be for round up. The boys have been having a great time at Grammi's but it's definitely made us question how much is good for them. As many of you parents know, these are hard decisions and the best we can do is continue following God ♡
