Brianna is our first child. She's 26, pretty dang smart, and now she's off to seek her fortune.
She grew up here in Cheyenne. Spent four years in Laramie earning a BFA at University of Wyoming.
Did I also mention she spent a semester in London, England? For some reason, Wanderlust took her
to Pennsylvania. After experiencing the 'Hood in Pittsburgh for two-and-a-half years, She and Josh
have relocated to the capitol of Texas. She's currently completing her Masters degree.
Would you believe me if I toldja a story, like this?
One that has her rollin' into a brand new town Back East
with $15 in her pocket, a hole in her flip-flops, and nothin' else but
a spring in her step and a sparkle in her eye? Well, wouldja??
Nahhh, I didn't think so.
Aw, you should never ruin a good story with the truth.
Well, the part about the spring and the sparkle, that's true.
From the time she was a little kid, Brianna tended toward Absolute Perfectionism.
She once nearly frost-nipped her fingers and toes shoveling snow for me, so I wouldn't have to.
Good thing she didn't lose her toes. She needed them for Point.
Well. If they thought it got hot in Pittsburgh, they'll have a new
appreciation for "hot" now that they're on Texas' Colorado River...
Here's a link to an old writing
from more than fifteen years ago, about her pluck and
tolerance, post-holing up a snow-laden New Mexico volcano
with Yours Truly. She was only eleven years old at the time.
