Life is better on Papa’s tractor...

This is an image of my 2 year old daughter, Belle. Don’t let her name fool you, she is no dainty southern belle. This little Texan loves to go to my parent’s ranch every weekend, put her boots on and get to work. This little gal is the definition of fearless and knows when we fall, we pick ourselves up, dust off our britches and “rub some tough on it.” She fiercely loves her Mawpie and Papa, all things country and the adventures awaiting her every time those tiny boots hit the dirt.
