Reunited with a sweet, dear friend who coordinated a church youth event in Arizona and invited me to speak at it!

First night home with my little brothers and they welcomed me back with a steak dinner and sparkling cider! Cutest thing ever!

I had the chance to speak at a church youth event in Arizona about Phillipians 4:13 and my experience with that scripture as Miss Rodeo America. What a sweet event.

My mom and sister joined me at the Montana Silversmith’s photoshoot to help behind the scenes and even hopped in on a few photos!

Former Miss Rodeo Arizona and sweet friend, Brittany Truman, kicked up tons of kindness to help with my photoshoot!

Enjoying dinner with the photoshoot crew at the end of our fun, long day! Mom and Raylen, Blair and Brittany, Tiffany, Judy Wagner, Natalie, Allison, and Tova. What a great team!

Finally getting hugs from my mom and my horse!

Family reunion! I got to see my cute little cousin, Bryton, representing with her first rodeo queen title. We loved being “queened up” together!

Mom and daughers! I sure love being horseback with my family!

Reunited with my girls from the Cowgirls Historical Foundation! I loved riding with them again, this time in a new capacity!

Fun times behind the chutes with the Cave Creek Rodeo Days Royalty!

I stopped by my local Boot Barn where I have been shopping forever! What a fun time to reintroduce myself with a new crown on my hat.

The gals!

The Grand Entry Committee had a beautiful belt buckle custom made for me to remember my Houston trip by. What a sweet example of “Kicking Up Kindness!”

First Responders Day was such a blast. I made new friends who serve in all sorts of different capacities.

If you know me, you know I am a prankster. I climbed into a display ambulance on First Responders Day and sent this picture to my mom.

I have come to find out that all Cervi Rodeo horses are among the friendliest and easiest to love on!

Baby bucking horse time… I cannot think of anything cuter!

Armed Forces Day at the Houston Rodeo! What a wonderful tradition!

Chatting with sweet Dot Cunningham, wife of Walter Cunningham. She had so much wisdom to share.
