My youngest sister told me I had to do this LO
I am not exaggerating in the journaling when my family calls that the "summer of your rebellion"---rofl!!
I used SP's Happy Trail kit!
At least thatís what my family calls it. It was the summer after I graduated from high school. In my heart, I had always wished I was a cowgirl! So for graduation, I talked a few of my friends into going to a working dude ranch for the week. (I really didnít have to talk all that hard).
So after graduation, we headed to Central Utah to a town with a population of 80. We spent the week riding horses and having fun. We also got to know a few of the ranch hands. We spent quite a bit of time listening to country music, which, up to that point, none of us had liked. I spent a lot of time that week thinking too.
I came home after that week and broke-up with my
boyfriend of two years, listened to lots of country music and bought some Wranglers and these boots. My family was really worried what had happened to me. In reality, that was my way of growing up and spreading my wings a bit. My way of saying good-bye to who I was and starting a new phase in my life. I think my family thought the phase would pass, or hoped it would. Well, I still listen to country music, but donít get to wear boots too often. In my heart, I still wish I was a cowgirl!!
When my family refers to the ďsummer of my rebellionĒ I always think it could have been much worse and I can only hope that when my kids decide to grow up and spread their wings, they too buy some cowboy boots and start listening to country music! That would be just fine with me!!
