A few Glacier pics

So I just realized I haven't even posted any pictures of Glacier National park... Well here's just a couple, I don't have all of them saved to my computer, and I know most of you have seen them on my facebook anyways. But here's a few:

Hard workin cowgirl!

My cowboy <3

I'll post more up as soon as i get more on my computer. For now, my eyes are burning, as having the internet back into my life has caused me to intake a massive overdose of it.
Good night, never never land!

Phenomenal Woman


Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Jump for Jump

The title of this blog is just one of the many things I have learned from my new friend.... excuse me, I mean boyfriend. While'st during my stay in Montana, I happen to have wrangled myself up a cowboy. (jump for jump is a rodeo term)
If you actually know me, you know well enough that for a long time I have been wanting, desperately, to meet a "real man". . . well I finally did. This man has done more with his twenty five years of life, than most people EVER do with their entire lives. I don’t even have time to get into it, but the most important aspect of his abilities, is that he has every quality I have ever asked for in a man. Even the bonus qualities I didn’t think I would ever really find, such as singing, dancing, AND cooking! (and the list goes on and on)

But I digress, (kind of) I am blissfully happy with him. And for those of you wondering I am currently living in southern Washington with him on Silver Lake. (Literally ON the lake!) The house is great, the view is beautiful, and as long as my cat can learn to live with the dogs (I haven’t gone back to Utah to pick her up yet), then everything will be just wonderful. I even spent the entire afternoon canoeing around the lake, doing a little fishing, and drinking beer on the dock. This place is beautiful. My life is beautiful.

I went to Montana hoping for it to open up possibilities, and it has done even more than I had hoped for. Also for those of you who care, my phone is now working again.

I gotta admit, it’s partially fun to be back in the real world with internet and phone service… but it was also a lot of fun to be up in the mountains where I was unreachable.

That's all the time I have to write now as dinner is wafting in deliciously from the kitchen.

Hope everyone has been well in my absence.

Love and peace,

Crystal Ann
