Enumclaw, Washington

I am…

I am from Enumclaw, from the home of Carhart and cow manure.

I am from the rolling hills.

I am from the alfalfa, the dairy.

I am from the Friday Night Lights tradition and the hunting family trait, from my parents, community and God.

I am from the late night bonfires and back roads parties.

From a glass of whisky at night and a cup of Joe in the morning.

I am from a family with the common last name, Rainier Bar and Grill, and The Mint.

From the best fighter in town, and the toughest woman around.

I am from Enumclaw.
