Sturgis Rally Celebrates Its 80th I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 has been a very strange year.  It was upsetting for us and many others, when the world shut down and worrisome for small towns like ours when we were unsure if we’d be open for summer.  Businesses in The Black Hills have…

Our Introduction to Cuervo y Sobrinos Before I begin, I want to state that my dad and husband, Jared, are buddies.  They always share their newest discoveries with each other like tasty scotch and cool American-made clothing brands they find on Poshmark.

A Horse Named Benjamin

A Horse Named Benjamin? Here’s the story of Todd Jacobs’ newest release. A couple years ago, Todd started focusing on Sunset Paintings, because he loves how something so simple like a sunset can cause you stop and appreciate all that is around you.  In Todd’s words, “sunsets are calming, they blow me away, and they…

The Creation of “Bite Me” Before I begin telling the story of this particular painting, I wanted to shed some light on Alexa while when were growing up.

Main Street Initiative Cleanup

In my opinion, Deadwood is one of the most unique US towns I’ve ever visited and now I am fortunate enough to live near it.  Deadwood is best known for its involvement in the Gold Rush as well as being home for some famous name from US History like Wild Bill Hickok, Seth Bullock, Calamity…
