Here are a few reasons why I love the great state on Montana!

I've been back in Montana for a few months now, and I have had many reminders of why I love it so much here. Friday, I was honored to be a part of my first food drive for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. We raised over 20,000 lbs of food!

It was inspiring to see so many people in our community open up their hearts, and give to families in need. The generosity experienced on Friday while collecting food for the food bank made me realize how incredible the people in the Gallatin Valley are. They took time out of their busy day to ensure that all families in our community have a meal on the table during the holidays.

Needless to say, the people in Montana have been very kind and welcoming. In addition to the great people, I love the great scenery. Wherever you go in Montana, you're sure to witness beauty unlike any you'll see anywhere else in the world. Over the weekend, I saw deer in my front yard on two separate occasions.

If you love the outdoors, Montana truly is the last best place. It's definitely one of the world's wildest places. I'm not sure that you could see the amount of wildlife anywhere else. One of the great things about the great state of Montana, is that depending on where you are, your scenery can change drastically. Much of the state is filled with rolling wheat fields and farmland. On the other end of the spectrum , we have some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world.

These are a few of my favorite things about Montana, and why I love it so much here. If you want to "Get Lost in Montana", you have endless opportunities.
