I grew up wanting to be a cowgirl. I loved horses and the outdoors. We had a few horses when I was young, but the neighborhood changed and most of the livestock had to leave. It just wasn't the same being a cowgirl and only having chickens and a few goats, LOL! I've never had a horse since that time, even though I now live in the country again.

But being a cowgirl isn't all about riding horses and cooking out over campfires. At least according to Dale Evans: "Cowgirl is an attitude, really. A pioneer spirit, a special American brand of courage. The cowgirl faces life head on, lives by her own lights, and makes no excuses. Cowgirls take stands. They speak up. They defend the things they hold dear. A cowgirl might be a rancher, or a barrel racer, or a bull rider, or an actress. But she's just as likely to be a checker at the local Winn Dixie, a full-time mother, a banker, an attorney, or an astronaut."

So have a great day and feel free to saddle up and get in touch with your inner cowgirl:).

When I was a kid I played Annie Oakley in a play and wanted to be her for a long time. Then there was the period I wanted to be Davy Crockett and wore a coonskin cap everywhere I went. Not so great on a girl with a blond dutch boy hair cut. But I had a great time as a kid. I ran across a photo this evening of me in my cowgirl suit. Lookin pretty cool. As a matter of fact, it's been a long time since I had that much fun. Thanks for reminding me.
