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 , beautygood 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.

    Love the blog! I have really appreciated getting to know some amazing women via the ‘Prairie Wife of the Week”. Have used many of your recipes and parenting tips. I also love the real life accounts of what goes on on the prairie homestead. Having known the Prairie wife, for almost 5 years, I can testify that she tells it how it is…the good, the bad and the ugly! 🙂

    Having the great pleasure to meet PW in person while visiting another PW in Wyoming, this blog has been special to me. It helps me keep in touch with important people in my life, share myself in a small way, and enjoy small moments of ‘prairie’ from far away in Michigan. Thanks and congratulations on a full year!

    What a blast to read…and congratulations! I have to say that the nicknames are just priceless. I can’t help but smile while I read the sometimes all too familiar tales. I’m such a city girl–a grassy median it a bit too much nature for me and you’re processing elk! What a woman 🙂
