I went to my friend Ree’s ranch last weekend in Oklahoma. It was a much needed escape from my Austin life and I had so many chaotic things going on that I just needed to drive away. And eat more.
So I cruised on the open road, which was very cathartic. And I arrived at her ranch just as the sun was setting in the most beautiful way. And she fed me warm chocolate cake. And immediately I had my appetite back and ate the rest of the weekend with glee.
Ree’s dog is named Charlie and he is such a character that she’s written a children’s book about him. He strolled in after her when she met us at the lodge and was showered with attention on the spot.
“Hey Girl, want to take a picture of this? I thought so.”
His work here was done.
