  3. Wonderful recap of a year in photos!! Good luck in 2013!

    1. Thank you so much!! I so enjoyed yours and I think it's hilarious that we had the same post on the same day....I didn't realize until I clicked through to Life at the Rough String!! LOL You are an amazing photographer, I'm going to keep up with your photo a day challenge, good luck! :)

  4. Great photo recap! You two are awesome!

      I was literally looking at Sissie and Me's concho belts last night and trying to figure out which one I liked the best....hard decisions !!

  5. Looks like you guys had a great 2012!! and i shall try the 'town' roping someday LOL my city neighbors are probably gonna be all "what the heck is that crazy lady doing?" but meh i dont care what they think. Anyway here's to an equally amazing 2013!!

    1. Yes!! Get a dummy and start town roping!! Our neighbors would stand there and watch us like we had lost our mind! Which I'm sure we have but that's besides the point....hehehe Hope you have an awesome 2013 too! :)
