Welcome to the Living Our Dreams blog. Why the purple boot? It is my brand. The essence of who I am in the world. It is funny to me that I have chosen this symbol, as I am really not a pink kind of gal. The boot came to me and would not let go. It started with a photograph of a mother and daughter dancing at a music festival and would not let go
When I launched my company Feisty Females,™ I ordered my first pair of purple/pink cowgirl boots. They are a symbol of the blend of Rocky Mountain, rough and tumble, combined with my feminine spirit.
As an artist, Georgia O’Keeffe has been my icon for as long as I can remember. In my mind she was the ultimate Feisty Female™. Her story was the inspiration for me to head West. My mother daubed me the ultimate JAP-a modern day “Jewish American Pioneer” and although she could never have known it at the time, those words became a paradigm for the way I would live the rest of my life. The Rocky Mountain region where I live-and my small town in particular-is still filled with real life cowboys and cowgirls. Each spring and fall modern life grinds to a halt, as the cattle drive moves right through the heart of town!
Being a woman requires random acts of courage on a daily basis. Stepping boldly in the direction of our dreams, requires a certain type of feisty spirit, with a healthy dose of moxie thrown in for good measure. We can’t do it alone, so I decided it was high time to have a place where I could ramble and muse about the adventures and challenges of being a Feisty Female.
My hope is this will be a place of inspiration for those of you who are dreaming of something more, as well as those of you who have already taken the leap.

Hugs and Purple Boots
