I Am.

4 Jan

I am me.  In addition, I am a wife, daughter, sister and mother.  But first and foremost, I am me.

Taking a page from the lovely and talented Aunt Becky, I am going to make this the year of me.

First step to that goal?  A standing date between myself and a lovely lady from Craigslist for horseback riding.  This poor lady was in a car accident a few years ago and after multiple surgeries, has major nerve damage in one of her hands.  This left her unable to groom and tack up her three Paso Fino horses.  I am glad to do so in exchange for riding.  It’s a win-win situation.  Especially considering how well we got along on Saturday.  We just clicked.  For the entire 3.5 hours I was there, we talked about all sorts of things.  From her horses and goats and dogs to books (she is a voracious reader like me) to Roman history.  It was meant to be.

So now I have a day for me doing something I truly enjoy.

In addition, my computer will hopefully be fixed this evening and allow me to work on photos again.  It’s been so incredibly slow for weeks and then finally just decided it didn’t want to do anything anymore.  Here’s hoping it will be fixed, as we cannot afford to get me a new one.

Other than that, I will not feel guilt for finding me.

I am me.

I am.


Wordless Wednesday – Horse Tales

9 Dec

Meet Eddie

Meet Eddie.  A 17 hand Hanoverian jumper.  A huge teddy bear of a horse.

Brave Soul!

Introduce my daughter.  Fearless.

Deep in the Eyes

Eddie, take good care of her.

Keep My Baby Safe

I know you will be good.  Maybe we can convince Mr. Soup someday soon to get one just like you in the near future.

Mommy and Baby...

I hope so!

BTW, still sore 3 days later.  English riding is so different than Western!
