"Do not complain about growing old. It is a privilege denied to many." - Mark Twain I've never complained about growing older before. It's always been more of a question and wonder that I made it. Another year getting through what life throws at me while picking up whatever I can, and running with it.… Continue reading This Is 33.
Sometimes you order something soft and adorable off Amazon trusting that the description is real because you know, it's not like you're blindly ordering off of Wish. You trust that it was made for you since it says "women's" even though you find out it definitely fits your dog better than it fits you... and… Continue reading Let The Year Begin
"Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity."- Herbert Hoover I finally had a moment of freedom on Saturday. Quick brush job and some orange polos, off we went. Almost a month without a saddle on his back, Brantley was steady and ready to explore. Of… Continue reading A Little Freedom… And an OTTB Story
Well then... This has been a bit of a hiatus full of craziness. Number one reason for not posting was the lack of computer and WiFi passwords at all of the houses that I've been staying at... Number two reason is well... J... It's hard to stare at a computer screen (that was non-existent anyway)… Continue reading Absolute Craziness
First off, I really think we need to appreciate #equestrianlife tanlines for a moment...

Let's talk self-employment. You have an idea to start a business. You have a game plan. You open a bank account. You follow up with clientele. And away you go. Your level of success is based on the amount of time and work you put in right? Sometimes it takes a few months. Sometimes a… Continue reading The Pet-Sitting Life
Sometimes I just like to spend time in the dirt with my own thoughts listening to the wind howl through the cracks in the indoor. Safest place to sit? Probably not.
