Regarding cowboy poet, Jessica Hedges:

"Jessica's obviously really, really talented. Her material floated to the top because of the quality of her presentation and her material."

~Charlie Seeman,Executive Director of the Western Folklife Center

"Jessica's ability to take a common, everyday experience, such as cooking dinner or doing laundry, and put a ranch life spin on it has made her poetry popular with both men and women alike. She has also drawn the attention of a younger crowd that is searching for a grounded lifestyle that is real in a fast-paced, computerized society."

~Jennifer Denison, Western Horseman

"When Jessica writes poetry about the buckaroo lifestyle she is writing from a firsthand knowledge of the things she has actually seen or experienced. This puts her apart from many other western poets that tend to glamorize or write about the way they 'think it was.' When you add this hands-on knowledge to her keen, observant eye and sensitive nature, you come up with a very unique individual that can write poetry that truly touches the souls of those of us who have lived it and also those that wish they could have."

~Mackey Hedges, author of Last Buckaroo and Shadow of the Wind

  • Good friends keep you updated on social norms. A few friends recently reminded me that craving cilantro is more than a little weird! What's your weird craving?

  • Struggling with food the last few days but a budget and a grocery shopping trip today will get me back on track! Got some hard boiled eggs cooked up, veggies sliced up and am ready to kick it up- into high gear!

On the flip side, fitness seems to be improving! Ran a personal best on one of my regular loops and was a lot less fatigued from the 130 mile one way grocery trip than normal. 
Keep posting your sucesses, I love cheering you on and they are so motivating in my journey as well. Now off to pick a 10k in Bend... #mealprep #eatclean #5ktraining #10ktraining #runner #motherrunner #crosstraining #womensrunningcommunity #personalbest #inbend #ranchwife #ranchlife #fitfam

  • I'm not going to lie, I'm struggling on the food side of this weekend. Had a ranch party Saturday, a birthday party Sunday and a BBQ tonight. Add in the plateau I've been fighting and it's a recipe for disaster! That being said, I'm also really proud of myself. My focus on portion sizes and limiting alcohol is something I would not have done before. I took care of my long run on Saturday, mowed the yard yesterday and will try to get something in today. Have fun this weekend, remember the fallen and don't forget your goals!!! #fitfam #eatclean #5ktraining #10ktraining #runner #motherrunner #crosstraining #fighttemptation #everythinginmoderation

  • It's kind of ironic that as a writer,  I can find myself at a loss for words to convey my feelings. Memorial Day has always been a day that I struggle to put into words. How can one fully define a heart welling of pride, honor, respect, sacrifice, sorrow and a hundred other emotions? 
So this is a time where I'll take my cues from the old cowboys of before and hope that "thank you" somehow enough ♡

  • A bubble bath and a recovery shake is the perfect way to recover from 4.9 miles, no?
