Regarding cowboy poet, Jessica Hedges:
"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

So the older brother opened the baby lock and got into the kitchen appliance cabinet. Out came the mini ninja blender (with removable blades). Younger brother managed to cut the inside of his foot with the blade and mama had to track his bloody foot prints through the house. No sharp objects for Sam and I this weekend!

This running thing hasn't been some get skinny quick scheme for me. It hasn't been a band wagon to jump on. It's a lifestyle change that I re-commit to with every meal choice and work out.
Tonight was a bit rough on the toddler front. Normally after getting them down, I would have ran for something sugary, telling myself I deserved it. Not tonight. Not only did I avoid the junk, I got in an upper body workout on a rest day just to blow off some steam. Food hadn't even entered my mind as a solution!
Although it's not exactly award worthy, it is a tiny victory to me. Proof of the changes that I wanted to make are happening one moment at a time.
