Our One Year Anniversary is Here #giveaway
Posted October 1, 2014 by Prairie Wife - 31 comments
Prairie Wife: It’s crazy to think that’s it has already been a year since PrairieWifeInHeels.com began, today marks our One Year Anniversary! What started as a simple way for me to offer support to other women by sharing my life here on the rugged and beautiful Prairie of Wyoming, as well as my love of fashion , beauty, good food and books…has turned into so much more. When I began this blog my goal was to be open and honest with my readers about the ups and downs of life as a woman, wife and mother on the Prairie, in hopes that along the way I would help other women to see their own strengths. My big sister Texas Two Steppin’ came along for the ride to offer her words of wisdom about being a wife, stepmother, and business woman. The reaction from our readers has been so much bigger than I ever thought, and I truly feel that we have stayed true to our Prairie Wife Guarantee.
Over the last year I have had moments of frustration as sick kids, exhaustion, and life in general has pulled me in too many directions to count. There were days and weeks when I felt like I truly had no energy to give to myself, much less the blog…and feared that I would let my readers down. As I gritted my teeth and forged ahead (in true Prairie Wife style) I could see that the benefits were soon out weighing those stressful times. Chatting with my favorite author, hearing that my post made someone laugh or helped them through a hard day, not to mention sharing the stories of so many profoundly amazing men and women, has truly inspired me to become a better wife, woman, and mother.
Texas Two Steppin’: This blog has been such an unexpected joy, and I am forever grateful to my little sister for asking me to come along on this ride. My “real job” doesn’t allow me much time for creative writing and self expression, and I have truly loved connecting with women and men with incredible and inspiring lives. While we started out featuring stories about the fabulous females in our lives, it has been such a joy to “meet” new people, like Marissa, Connie and Kendra, who influence us but probably wouldn’t be hanging out in Johnson City, TX (although they are always welcome!). And I can’t tell you how special it was to represent Prairie Wives in the front row of a Nordstrom fashion/beauty event. Just pinch me! But even more special is the fact that PW and I have bonded as we’ve texted, emailed, philosophized and written about our passion for beauty and fashion, family and friends, and our really rural lives.
