Giving Gratitude: Friends in far places

Some people have friends in low places, I have friends in far places. One of my 101 goals in 1001 days is to give gratitude on my blog. Today, I'm thankful for the friends I have. I'm fortunate for the friends I've made in Milwaukee, but today I'm even more grateful for those friends I've met throughout the years (whether it be cattle shows, college or now through social media) and we may not see each other every day or month, but yet are still considered close friends.
Social media has introduced me to a whole new circle of friends I wouldn't have met otherwise. A good example of that is my friend, Jamie Purfeerst of Cows Corn & Country Girls. Jamie and grew up with a similar childhood and now both pursuing agriculture communication type careers. I would have never met Jamie if it weren't for our blogs. I think she may even have been interning at Angus the summer I was at Hereford, small world!
And after meeting her in real life I realized how much fun we could have together! In celebration of her birthday, she's having a giveaway! May be when year 25 rolls around for me I'll have a giveaway in combo with my wish list! Make sure you become one of her followers and enter to win a crafty key chain band. She's quite crafty, too bad she lives so far away, we could have fun making Pinterest DIY crafts or cooking up yummy beef recipes!

Entere here and this homemade key chain could be yours! Drawing is on Friday.
