Funny how things turned up. This is me in the red cowboy hat. My dad took this photo when I was in preschool, dancing in my cowboy costume with my friends at a Purim party. I still remember what the costume felt like and how it smelled. It came with a belt and a handgun that made a real loud Bang! Little did I know then that I will move to the US with my husband and two kids and end up living in Texas among real cowboys. My name is pronounced Yeefaht which means Beauty in Hebrew.
