These Diamond Earrings that my father gave my mother prior to me being born are the only thing I have left from my mother. After our house burnt down in 2008 with every other treasured item of mine from her going down in it, these were in the center console of my truck and I found them a couple weeks after the fire. So I truly cherish these earrings because these are the last physical anything that my mother gave me. ❤

Over these past two years at Butler I have experienced and learned some amazing things but one of my fondest memories was winning the Ft. Worth National Livestock Judging Contest, not only was I High Individual Overall but the team also won that day! Like a good friend recently told me I am 1 our of 6 people this year that won a National Contest, also this year the team was one of two teams to win two (2) National Contests which is remarkable. Being a High Individual at a National Contest  has been one of my biggest goals and dreams ever since I came to Butler to judge and finally I did it and so did the team. It was an incredible feeling to have a dream come true after everything I and the team had worked so hard for.

Just Living the Dream

March 29, 2011

While most college kids head South to warm weather and sun tans over Spring Break, every year my siblings and I return home to Elk City, Kansas to prepare for our family’s annual production bull sale.

This year, we sold almost 200 Angus and Hereford bulls and a little over 200 commercial females (179 and 217, respectively- to be exact). The weather was gorgeous and the lunch was simply scrumptious 🙂 (especially the pie, if I may say so myself!)

We had such a great turn out. It is always great to see old friends and make new ones.

These are some of my favorite pictures taken from the sale.

All of the pictures were taken by Anne Lampe, Secretary of the Kansas Angus Association.

Below are several more pictures from the day. These were also taken by Anne, and a few by my cousin, Susan.
