first and foremost… i want to say THANK YOU to the men and women who serve our country. fearlessly. tirelessly. bravely. valiantly.
secondly – let me just say that Amarillo amazes me with their hospitality and ability to come together as a community to encourage and uplift others the way they do. Earlier this week, i joined hundreds of people in our community as they took time out of their work day and lives to welcome the Wounded Warriors arriving at the airport to join President George Bush for the Warrior 100K in Palo Duro Canyon.
i am overwhelmed by those that made signs with their names. provided them with blankets. meals. transportation. and those that came out to show their support and appreciation for these men and women.
I joined my new friends from the Funspired Website and helped them capture the arrivals as well as the hospitality of our community! Funspired is a weekly newsletter that highlights upcoming events in our area- so make sure you subscribe and like their Facebook Page!
i love that the kids showed their patriotism and made posters!

of course, we are forever indebted to our military for their efforts and unwavering contribution to our freedom and country! we hope you enjoyed your stay in Amarillo and your bike ride through the Canyon!
