Autumn is definitely my favorite time of year. Cooler weather, boots, pumpkin flavored everything, fall colors, and HUNTING SEASON! I didn't think my hunting experience from last fall could get any better, but I was recently asked to be a special guest hunter at the second annual Wyoming Women's Antelope Hunt next month- wahoo! This hunt is put on by the Wyoming Women's Foundation, a non-profit that invests in the economic self- sufficiency of women and the future of girls. How amazing is that? Russ and I will going over towards Sheridan, Wyoming, for this event, and I couldn't be more excited!
Some of the great parts of this hunt are the camaraderie that is built between the women, as well as the life-skills that are taught and encouraged. We hunt together, and then there are workshops that teach women about processing and cooking their wild game to feed their families. So much more fun than the grocery store! Fresh, organic, inexpensive meat has always been one of my favorite things about hunting, and that same motivation is spreading across the country as the number of women hunters is increasing each year. I can't wait to teach Addison all about this awesome privilege that she can one day experience for herself.
I am also excited to announce some other big news. I am officially launching my inspirational speaking business. The Lord has opened up so many doors for this opportunity since I won Ms. Wheelchair USA 2013-2014, and I am thrilled to see where He is going to lead me next. You can find more information at my new website, ashleelundvall.com. Check it out and let me know what you think, and if you know of a speaking opportunity, please let me know!
