Get to Know My Home State - Wyoming

Landscape_of_Jackson_Hole,_October_2010.jpg

Wyoming is known for holding our nation’s first National Park, in Jackson Hole W. Y.

Yellowstone National Park is known as one of the most beautiful parks in the US, vibrant, full of stunning mountains, geysers, hot springs, and wildlife including: moose, bison, bears, wolves and elk.

Wyoming is the lowest populated state, in fact, there are more cattle, than there are people! It also houses the first national monument, Devil’s Tower, AND it is the home of the largest coal mine in the US. It's known for its beautiful sunsets, and picturesque landscapes on the horizon. Wyoming is truly the last frontier. Wyoming cowboys still saddle up on the horses to check cattle, and still bring in the calves for branding and vaccinations. Don’t let the beauty of this state fool you, it is STILL the cowboy state. There is no better place to work than the Wyoming great outdoors!

Living the frontier life isn't for everyone though, living in a small town, might require you to give up some “luxuries”. Having moved from Dallas Ft.Worth, T.X. myself, I know all too well. It might not have a mall, a skating rink, a bowling alley, a Hobby Lobby (NOOO!!) or any an outdoor pool….But maybe I should just tell you what we do have...

Well we have the best coffee house in the world at the “Kaffee Klatsh” also “Isabella’s” one the cutest Italian restaurants with the best pizza! The most delicious breakfast on the planet at “Donna’s Diner.” A hidden cabin with the juiciest steaks called “Canyon Springs Steak House” and not to mention, we have gorgeous mountains, pine trees, rolling hills, wild turkey, and deer.

I have met some of the nicest people all across Wyoming….Some of whom, have taken my family in as their own. Since we’ve moved out to Wyoming, we are more active as a family. Hiking, biking, riding horses, and exploring the great outdoors, is all a part of your everyday life in Wyoming. It sounds crazy but my marriage and my family has grown closer together, living in Wyoming!

Needless to say, we made the right choice by moving to Wyoming.

And last, but not least, we found purpose in Wyoming. We were literally called out here, that may sound weird, but it's true...We moved out here to make a difference! Our outreach (feeding, teaching and loving the kids of my community every week) has been one of the most rewarding experiences, we are making a difference in young people’s lives. There is nothing more fulfilling than living a life of purpose, I encourage you to find your “Wyoming” and to live a purpose-driven life.

I'm your Mrs. International, reminding you - To choose love,

Priscilla
