Country girl at heart

As the snow fell here in Cow-town I was excited for winter, but I was also feeling a little sad about the lack of summer we had. The weather was awful this year. Alright, July wasn't that bad, but I was stuck in summer school the whole month! So I'm going to mourn my summer, look forward to winter and leave you all with the memory of my first ride on my dad's motorcycle a few weeks ago.

It was Thanksgiving long weekend, and the last summer-like day of the year. After a year of my dad having his bike he finally felt comfortable enough to have someone ride on the back with him, so he invited me to go out for a ride. I threw on my Cheap Monday's and Michael Kors moto boots - this being the first time I used them for what they're said to be made for - and off we went. We rode through the country and as I looked out at the rolling foothills, the mountains in the distance and the cows beside me I came to fully appreciate the love I have for Alberta.

This was my playlist for the ride:

  • Shuttin' Detroit Down - John Rich
  • Love Don't Live Here Anymore - Lady Antebellum
  • Love Your Love The Most - Eric Church
  • My Kind Of Radio - Jo Hikk
  • Pledge Allegiance to the Hag - Eric Church
  • The Road and the Radio - Kenny Chesney
  • Where She Told Me To Go - Eric Church
  • Pretty Girl at the Airport - The Avett Brothers
  • People Are Crazy - Billy Currington
  • Long Gone - Lady Antebellum
  • Days of Thunder - Brooks & Dunn
  • Beer in Mexico - Kenny Chesney
  • Neon Moon - Brooks & Dunn
  • Troubadour - George Strait
  • Summertime - Kenny Chesney

I know there's going to be a lot of people that'll be angry with me for feeding this stereotype, but I honestly think that country and folk music is perfect for driving, skiing, riding, running, whatever, in Alberta. Hence the above playlist!


  1. Suzie, look at you, reppin' the biker chick with the country songs and the helmet AND THE BIKE. Haha. Love you!

  2. I love how your jacket matches the bike! Definitely going to listen to the songs and think about Alberta and cows.
