That's even a few years before my time. But one of my very favorite country songs was written this year. If you haven't heard it, I'll learn you up now. It was written by Kris Kristofferson (who's version isn't bad) but Willie sings it and he just makes it a masterpiece-adding the harmonica with Willie's trigger and the piano. And if you haven't heard some old school Willie Nelson, are you even really alive? (Please tell me you've heard of Always On My Mind?) Back when songs used to tell stories and have meaning, more like poetry and less like a five word chorus that a kindergartner could write.


This is one of those songs that defines my life. And the last picts of me in the beans, well, they define me as well. Go ahead and put them on my tombstone. ;0





Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)

written by Kris Kristofferson performed by Willie Nelson


"I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountain in the skies

Aching with the feeling of the freedom of an eagle when she flies

Turning on the world, the way she smiled upon my soul as I lay dying

Healing as the colors in the sunshine and the shadows of her eyes


Waking in the morning to the feeling of her fingers on my skin

Wiping out the traces of the people and the places that I've been

Teaching me that yesterday was something that I never thought of trying

Talking of tomorrow and the money, love and time we had to spend

Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again


Coming close together

With a feeling that I'd never known before in my time

She ain't ashamed to be a woman or afraid to be a friend

I don't know the answer to the easy way she opened every door in my mind

But dreaming was as easy as believing it was never gonna end

Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again


Coming close together

With a feeling that I'd never known before in my time

She ain't ashamed to be a woman or afraid to be a friend

I don't know the answer to the easy way she opened every door in my mind

But dreaming was as easy as believing it was never gonna end

Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again


And loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again"




I saved the best for last.


I am not sure if you noticed or not, but I never changed my jeans or my tank for this whole photo shoot. All that changed were my tops, boots, hat and accessories.


For this look, I topped my jeans with a lightweight button down dress in a fabulous color of yellow. I wore this dress to a wedding this summer with a khaki green jumper on underneath. It's super versatile.


I love this color of yellow but it can be hard to find. Yellow is tricky to wear when you're blonde. It has to be the right shade or you look yellow all over. Let's call this yellow, amarillo, shall we?


I was super excited to wear this outfit in the beans because I love how golden the whole picture is.

I wore this dress with my summer cowboy hat and some gold and wooden accessories. It reminds me of some of the dresses Beth Dutton wears. She isn't afraid to wear a long floral print dress and neither should you.





I found my Beth Dutton dress at Target. But you can find a similar one here:

I had so much fun with this photo shoot. It's my new favorite. Because it feels so much like ME.


I hope you had a great time coming along with me and getting some Yellowstone/Western inspiration.




To close, I thought I'd leave you with every cowboy's anthem, Amarillo by Morning, by a very young George Strait. Dear God, he looks like a kid, doesn't he?


Here's to season 4!
