When a City Girl Goes Country

Published

By Annette Bridges

Do you believe in signs and destiny? I am truly not the superstitious type, but there have been moments in my life when looking back I could see some intriguing connection or event that led to another one. For example, when I was 16 years old, I attended a Christmas party at a horse ranch about a mile from my husband’s family cattle ranch.

We went on a hayride singing Christmas carols, and I think it is highly likely we rode by where I would live six years later and then spend the next 40-plus years of my life. Considering I was a city girl, born and raised, attending a youth group Christmas party in the country at least 70 miles from where I was growing up, I certainly never could have imagined I would one day live nearby with the love of my life. I have shared before how I met my husband at Six Flags Over Texas.
