  • Honoring the Unsung Heroes: Western Moms Who Do It All

    In the heart of the Western frontier, amidst sprawling ranches and endless prairies, there exists a breed of mothers unlike any other. These are the women who embody the spirit of the wild west, who don their boots and saddle up for a life that's equal parts challenging and rewarding. From sunup to sundown, they're the unsung heroes of the rural landscape, juggling the responsibilities of motherhood with the demands of ranching, farming, and everything in between. At the crack of dawn, before the rooster crows, you'll find these Western moms already hard at work. With sleeves rolled up and grit in their veins, they're out in the fields, tending to crops or tending to livestock. From the back of a horse or behind the wheel of a tractor, they navigate the rugged terrain with a determination that's as unwavering as the Rocky Mountains themselves. But their work doesn't end there. Oh no, far from it. These are the mothers who wear many hats – quite literally, in some cases. They're the ones who can rope a calf one minute and whip up a hearty meal the next. They're the ones who can mend fences with one hand while soothing a crying child with the other. They're the ultimate multitaskers, balancing the demands of the land with the needs of their families without missing a beat. And let's not forget about their role as mentors and role models. These Western moms are raising the next generation of ranchers, farmers, and stewards of the land. From teaching their children the value of hard work to instilling in them a deep respect for nature, they're passing down traditions that have been handed down for generations. Whether it's helping out with chores around the farm or showing animals at the county fair, these kids are learning important life lessons that can't be found in any textbook. But perhaps what sets these Western moms apart is their indomitable spirit – their ability to face adversity with grace, resilience, and a healthy dose of humor. They know that life out on the frontier isn't always easy, but they tackle each challenge head-on, undeterred by the obstacles that lie in their path. Whether it's a drought, a blizzard, or a stubborn calf that just won't cooperate, they meet each setback with a can-do attitude and a determination to succeed. So here's to the Western moms who do it all – who work the land, raise their families, and keep the spirit of the wild west alive and thriving. You may not always get the recognition you deserve, but know that your tireless efforts do not go unnoticed. You are the backbone of the rural community, the glue that holds it all together, and for that, we are eternally grateful. Happy Mother's Day to our fearless Western mamas – may your boots be muddy, your hearts full, and your spirits forever wild and free.

  • Just Peachy

    I don't know the last time I've been so excited for Pantone to release the color of the year. This year's color brings back some fond 80's junior high / high school memories. Peach and turquoise were my colors long before they were cool (I'm looking through Momma's old photo albums for proof). House Beautiful describes this year's color, Peach Fuzz, as a light, delicate shade that sits between pink and orange. This soft, heartfelt hue expresses the desire to nurture kindness, compassion, and connection—all while fostering a deep coziness as we seek a peaceful future. Before we continue, can we just stop and appreciate Princess Di in this peach ensemble on a visit to Australia in 1983 (Getty Images). I mean, who didn't love Princess Di? I love Pantone's description of this year's color: "PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It's a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul. In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless." Of course, you will be seeing FUZZY peach all over Flying SR this year, including a few samples of peach colored wild rags: You know I'll be adding some peach colored sunnies to my collection, including these peach colored cat eyed sunglasses: If y'all come across a vintage pearl snap like the one I found on Etsy, please let me know. I would love to add something like this to my wardrobe! And before you think I'm completely, wholeheartedly binging peach, you're not wrong (the only peach I won't be partaking in is Boone's Farm Sun Peak Peach or Fuzzy are we all still alive?)! I will be watching out and sharing these fashionable colors this spring: Rooibos Tea Orangeade Watercress Desert Flower Chambray Blue Pastel Lilac Marlin Blue Lemon Drop Mint Capri And I didn't forget the home goods! if you're looking for colors for your home, look at persimmon, pearly white, and friendly yellow. Well I hope you have a peach of a day and remember life is too short to take yourself seriously! Big love, Red

  • God's Love Never Changes

    It's been a while since I've shared here - so I am making an effort in 2024 to do better! As I was sitting down yesterday morning to start my tasks at hand, I was visiting with my big sissy and reading my devotional. I told her that my devotional hit right where it hurts. God had me standing still before I even got through the second sentence. What I received from this devotional was.... When we feel the most happy and steady in God's promises, fully trusting, fully believing and fully rooted in His love has a DIRECT correlation to our connection to Him, our time spent with Him and His word. When we're deeply rooted, we feel strong, joyful, and purposeful! What better gifts can we all for? Who wouldn't want that every day? And then the gentle reminder jumped off the page: God's love for you NEVER changes. Wow. Just sit in that for a little while and "may you seek God throughout your day, and may you be sweetly surprised by the joy, peace, and well-being that fills your heart and soul." Big love, Red #wildragswildragseason #wildrags #wildragseason #westernlife #ranchlife #Flyingsr #keepinthewestwild #cowboylife #flyingsrcustomworks #walkinfaith #yearofgrace #livebyfaith
