This is the story of the day and the days following that changed my life forever. But first we have to go back to the day I came home from camp. On this day my parents informed me that we would be going to Montana the following weekend for a job interview. It wasn’t just the job interview that changed that day but my relationship with my friend Garret.
We left for Montana early on Friday, June 19th; it was a long 16 hour drive that totalled over 850 miles. At about 6:30pm we pulled into Havre, Montana, the town that I would soon know very well.

The drive to the ranch was interesting because we took the roundabout way to get there we met one of the ranch’s closest neighbors, the Boyds were 15 miles south of the ranch.
The moment we got to the ranch is one that is forever engraved in my mind because my life started to change quicker than I thought it could. The Diamond Bar Ranch sits in a beautiful large valley on the edge of the Bearpaw Mountains.

...'ve finished a year of school plus a semester of college. The house I called a home for 14 years sold. Recently I 've moved back to Minnesota where I 'm still happily with Garret. Seeing as I 'm the only one who moved back from Montana, Minnesota has brought many new experiences to light and new challenges to face, but with the help of my family and friends I know I can make it through the challenges of being so far away from my family, being a senior in high school, and learning to be an adult. Nevertheless I’m back to school at Pillager High School, where I’m a senior taking C.I.S. classes. Looking back on the move to Montana, which made me a stronger person in my faith, relationships, as well as other places in my life.
