If you have kids under 5 you need to look up the inspiration for my post title… Tom T. Hall (Country Songs for Children) is where it’s at. My clearest memory of being a 3 yr old is standing at the door between the restaurant and the lounge where my step-dad played. If I was peaking through the door he would sing me ‘I Care’… to this day it brings tears to my eyes to hear it. It was one of the first albums that I bought when I had my own kids. Tom is just plain old kid lovey goodness- trust me on this one :) Anyway, Barn Dance (the song the post title came from) kept playing through my head this whole shoot. I got the chance to head over to Pomeroy Farm to play for a bit with these two little amazing girls. (If you’re looking for a family outing, you need to check it out. 1920 working farm that they have kept true to the era… lovely). We petted some goats & an adorable baby calf… talked to the chickens… & pretended we were farm girls for the afternoon :)
Sidenote: if you are in Dallas or know someone in Dallas, read the bottom of this post. I have a little give away for someone!!

Okay Dallas folks… here it is: I’m giving away a free spot to my Dallas workshop next week. It is an all day get together on June 22nd in Fort Worth TX. You know how they say when life gives you lemons you should make lemonade? Well… this girl is ready for a huge pitcher of it ;) I’ve had one of those weeks… things have been coming from all sides- everyone needs everything right now, things are falling thru, money is going out faster than it is coming in- that kinda week ;) And well… I am a firm believer in we get what we put out… so I am thinking someone is telling me it is time for me to give back a bit. I have been very fortunate year and I definitely needed this week to remind me that paying it forward it what truly makes the world go round. Sooo… do you know someone that is constantly giving? Someone that deserves to have a day for themselves? Someone that never thinks about taking time or money for their own needs? I want to hear about it! Email me at email@example.com and tell me about them. I would love to tell someone on Sunday that they are joining us Wednesday for a day of fun, conversation, passion talk, shooting & play :) I know this is short notice so please get your thinking caps on fast & throw me a quick email! I’d like to choose someone on Sunday, June 19th…
