This past weekend, Bridgette and I went with Dannica to her hometown of Baker City, Oregon. The occasion? Miners Jubilee!
I have NEVER been to the country. Complete city girl here. But I loved my time in Baker City and I plan on forcing Dannica to take me every year! Baker is a small town of 10,000 people, many of whom are legit farmers and cowboys. Not like those move-type cowboys, like REAL COWBOYS.
Basically it’s nothing like I am accustomed to, being a big city girl and all. But there is something about that town and Miners Jubilee that brings a big smile to my face!
Miners Jubilee celebrates the strong mining history of the area. Everyone in the city comes together for parades, festivals, carnivals, beer gardens, and the rodeo.
I can’t even begin to describe how much fun I had this weekend discovering my country roots with two of my best friends. I almost died though at the rodeo (from screaming so much). It is terrifying…
I would give anything to be back at Dannica’s house drinking sweet tea and eating beef jerky while talking with her giant family.
I love everything about Baker City

The cowboy hats
A big thank you to Dannica’s parents Ron and Doris for having us this weekend! Little do they know that they have created a country girl!
