Thanksgiving on the Ranch

Home was so fun.

I didn't want to come back,

but alas, real life was calling my name. 

So here I am, leaving behind my sunny (70 degree) California for frostbitten Utah.

but I digress.

This week will be something to look forward to!

We're bringing home a Christmas tree tonight 

and Friday... is my birthday.

but for now, I leave you with some pictures of my beloved ranch.

We had a shipment of pairs (cows with their calves) come in right before we left

so my dad, my sister, the husband and I saddled up to drive them out.

The fall colors were beautiful ,

I soaked in the wide open space and breathed the crisp mountain air.

It was just what I needed.

plus Steve looked super hot in his wranglers....just sayin'.

top to bottom: my cousin Griffin conquering the quad, Lucy the cow dog, the old barn, mossy trees, Steve's boots, husband, fall leaves in the grass, Dad and cows (2), fall trees, Dad leading Blackie, white tree, fall color, Steve Brooke and Dad, Big Red and a calf, Dad looking over the ranch.

I hope your Thanksgiving break was just as refreshing as mine.

Happy Monday!
