Here we go! I'm toeing what feels like the starting line of this blog again, and getting ready to document all our "From the Draw" moments!
It's hard to believe that it has been over TWO years since I've really shared any of my hunting stories. A lot has happened and I'm finally getting the itch to write again. It feels good.
To catch you up, here's a quick whirlwind of my last two years...
I ran Pikes Peak marathon while I was pregnant. I didn't know I was pregnant. After 17 years of wearing the title of infertile, I had no idea I was carrying my sweet little Lindsey Jo when I took on this challenging race. Everything turned out fine and I didn't actually find out I was pregnant until after helping to carry two elk off the mountain durning elk season. (More here - Eclipsed Hallelujahs ).
After Lindsey was born, I took on being a full-time mom while working from home full-time. It was amazing and challenging at the same time. After a little over a year, Troy and I decided it was time for me to quit my social media job at the Outdoor Sportsman Group (Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, etc.) and dedicate my time to the more fulfilling job of being a mom. Best decision I've made! This last year, I've had time to invest in my little gal and watch her learn to love the world around her. With Troy's job on the Colorado Springs Fire Dept, his hours allow us to take little trips and adventures during the week. It also allows us to spend more time hunting and exploring outside.
That brings us to now... we are starting to bring Lindsey with us more and more as we continue our hunting adventures. She spent several weeks with us up on the mountain during elk season last year. This year we will be there a FULL month. We look forward to sharing our stories with you again. This time, as a party of 3!
Jeff and his boys will be tagging along also and sharing their hunting stories. We are planning on bringing you once again all our stories, advice on how to hunt with kids, keep them active in the outdoors, etc. So if that interests you, please follow along!
P.s., I've signed up for a couple races this year to help stay in shape for elk season (Hey, I'm getting old and need some motivation to keep me going.) I'll be writing a bit on that also.
From the Draw
We are devoted to sharing our bowhunting stories. We have a passion for passing on our hunting heritage to our kids. From the draw in the mountains to the draw on paper, the moments live on.
