Enjoy People from Oklahoma | Carlotta

“no friendship is an accident. ”
o. Henry, heart of the west


Carlotta is an old soul.  That sounds somewhat hokey (and I actually haven't met this pretty little fourteen-year-old face) but she is incredibly methodical, peaceful and observant, beyond her years. Her blog is consistently filled with lovely life details, precious thoughts, creative endeavors and just plain ol' inspiration.  Enjoy the following post from the first of four Oklahoma people I enjoy:

Hey there! I'm Carlotta and I blog over at Pastor's Girl's Ponderings. I'm so excited to be here today...I think we all agree that Kristen is pretty much the best, yes? She asked me to post about Oklahoma...which, considering this is where I live, is a subject close to my heart.

I'm an Oklahoma transplant--I've only been living here four years. But dang, when I moved here I never expected to fall so in love. Oklahoma tends to be an over-looked state--country you just drive through or fly over and never give it much thought.

But it's a state that's rich with history, breath-taking views, and some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I love the mix of big city (which is large enough to feel cultured but you still run into people you know everywhere) and country, the wide, wide open spaces, and tucked into the valleys, hidden caves and rocky paths begging to be explored.

I love the wild mustangs running free, the abundance of cows dotting the fields, and--yes, I'm going to go here--the wind that sweeps down the plain. Oklahoma is full of surprises and discoveries just waiting to be made. I love every inch of this glorious state...and I feel so blessed that I get to call it home.

Much Love,
Carlotta
