And I Don't Even Like Horses



Dear Wyoming,

I love you. Seriously.  With all my heart. I know I married Michigan, and it's been good to me, but I dream about you constantly and what we could be together.  Well, I mean in the summer anyway.  I long for your vastness, your rugged terrain,  your enormous sky.  So I spend my backseat riding time perusing real estate ads and I've learned what I really want is a ranch. That I can't afford one and would have no idea what to do with one notwithstanding, I still dream.  I've even taken to writing our initials on the backs of brochures:  CF + WY.

Yeah,  I've got it bad

Love you!

Caution

PS Don't worry about Checkered finding out about us.  He's lost his heart to a little place called Colorado.

I lived in Saratoga WY. I still dream about going back to stay. Next in line would be Colorado. Lived there too and would take that if I couldn't do Wyoming. I fully understand.

I found a house for us in Jackson Hole. It is just $12.75 mil.

This is a great post! :-D And all it will take is watching a herd of wild horses running across the terrain and you will be smitten with them too.

Have you considered counseling? ;-) lol

I always check out the real estate ads while traveling, and dream of the life I could have in another world, another life.

I can tell you are enjoying your trip. That scenery is really stunning. The vastness is huge! I can understand how you fell in love. :)

One of my favorite vacations of all time was our last pre-Mirabelle, when we went to Montana and drove down through Wyoming to Yellowstone. The scenery is just stunning and I loved it all. Glad you are having a lovely time, if you buy that ranch I will come and help you get organized, no fees necessary :-) Hope the birthday boy has recovered!
