I Walk The Line

When I wear all black, I always feel a little like Johnny Cash. When I wear my cowboy boots, I feel even more like someone from the Southwest. It's hard to deny my Southwest roots (even though I am a first generation Arizonian), as I love all the nostalgia that comes along with cowboy boots and the old west. Have any of you sweet readers ever been to Tombstone? It's like a time warp there! Long live the Southwest!

When I was about 18 I told my mom over, and over again that I wanted a quality pair of boots (my last pair had plastic on them and I bought them at a town junk sale in Wyoming). That year for my birthday she surprised me with these Justins, and since then they've always held a special place in my heart. What's more classic than a pair of cowboy boots? Nothing if you live in the Southwest!

If you've ever wondered what it looks like when I take photos for Instagram, well this is pretty much it. Scott really likes taking this shot, and I think it's pretty charming. It's like three photos in one (after I filter it and send it to Instagram, of course).

Today I'm going to keep chugging away at those grad papers. I had a meeting with one of my professors yesterday and during the meeting she asked me that dreaded question of "what's your background like, and what do you hope to get out of this program." Ok, it's not entirely dreaded per say, however, I always get to so nervous when someone asks me that one. Anyways, I told her about having my Bachelor's in Journalism, and that I wanted to continue writing and doing public relations work in the future with my two degrees. Suddenly everything all seemed to make sense with her and she began telling me how my writing was very PR, good PR, but still PR. Bahahaha. I took it as a compliment and will be working on my academic journal writing from now on!

What are you up to today? Got your ticket for the Arizona Blogger Conference yet? It's this Saturday! XO
