The Uprooted Magnolia

, ,
Meet my friend, Leah.

{I love this photo because Leah is a HUGE Tori Amos fan. 
It thrills me to know that she had the chance to meet her.}

Leah is such a lovely person and one of the most talented photographers around. Her work is simply breathtaking.

And so inspired!

Leah's talent is known far and wide. She has been hired for work around the country.

That's how she met Patrick - the love of her life.

She was hired for a job in Wyoming a few years ago. When she stepped off of the plane at the airport, she was greeted by a band of true cowboys who were there to pick her up.

{Heck! I'd make the trip to Wyoming just to be chauffeured by cowboys!}

Patrick was among them and they hit it off IMMEDIATELY!

After several months of a long distance relationship, Leah made the move from Georgia to Patrick's ranch in Wyoming.

Like an uprooted magnolia.

We miss her dearly, but it warms my heart to know she's so happy.

Her photo blog, Uprooted Magnolia, chronicles her life on the ranch and makes you feel like you're right there with her - on her nature walks, tending to cattle, meeting the wildlife that surrounds her daily.

Leah was recently recognized by as one of "8 Gorgeous Nature Blogs for Earth Day."

And, lawd... this girl deserves it!

So, mosey on over {in my best cowboy-speak} to Uprooted Magnolia and get ready to have your heart stolen by Miss Leah Yetter (and these little ones, too).
