A few of you may have seen on Facebook and Twitter that PrairieWifeInHeels.com has been honored to be featured on two amazing Wyoming blogs JellyBeanJournals.com and TheTallMom.com.
Several readers have messaged me trying to find the links so I thought it would be easiest to put the links right here on the blog, just to make it easy for you!
“To answer this question I had to take a moment and reflect on my last decade of motherhood, and ask myself…when did I most feel like a mom?
