This summer I had the privilege to live with a hard-core real-life Canadian.
Yikes right? hahah jk jk.
It was such a good time. We ended up going up to Canada to visit her family and to hit up the most famous Calgary Stampede.
This stampede happens once a year (July 12-15), and is an absolute blast. And the cowboys that compete are very talented because they have to be invited to ride up there.
Being the total heart-breaker, man-killers that we are, we made friends with some lovely little cowboys. There was one that I was particularly fond of named Jacobs Crawley. What a babe. Total red head but thats okay. Lol still cute. He had the sweetest little texan accent and knew how to country dance up a storm. We gave him a place to stay for one of the nights and watched him ride his saddle-bronc the next day. He was one of the 'wild cards' and he had 3 re-rides since his bronc was seriously going crazy!
Rodeo is a hard core sport
(Made the mistake of telling him that I thought it was a little silly... whoops)
And that cowboys are dang dang sexy.
Back in 2011 I had a blog called, "life as a hollie" where I recorded one of the funnest summers of my life. This bucket list helped me get through a tough break up & figure out who Hollie really was. This ended up being one of the most influential summers of my life (thus far).
