About The Curious Cowgirl

Living Gracefully: A lifestyle blog focusing on fitness, fashion, and philanthropy. Simple ways to inspire your every day.

The Curious Cowgirl and Will Evans at VanderbiltHey, y’all! I’m Mary Meier-Evans, a Native Texan, Travel Addict, Vintage Collector, and crazed needle-pointer who lets my curiosity chart my path. I’m also a wife and mom of four amazing people, and I gratefully embrace the twists and turns of life, because really…LIFE is an amazing gift!

My pen is always in my hand, most usually mapping out a plan for the next adventure. And oh the places I’ve been…and oh the amazing characters I’ve met…each one a story unto itself.

My favorite partner in crime is my darling husband Will, whose voracious affinity for collecting everything from American Folk Art to Military artifacts, photography to turn-of-the-century Flash Art, has led to to explore many deeply interesting places around the world.

The Curious Cowgirl, has an eye toward Empty Nester Travel, and will lead you to unexpected places, introduce you to fascinating people, and hopefully spark a little curiosity within you! You will find information on travel, restaurants, recipes, shopping, history and much more. I’m a modern-day Cowgirl, inviting you to spend some time with me, exploring together.

Do you have something you would like for me to consider in my editorial content? Be sure to contact me here. I hope that you will subscribe and stop by often.

Giddy up ya’ll! Let’s enjoy the journey together!


Mary, The Curious Cowgirl
