"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.
There's something to be said about having a 9-5 job. It's different that's for sure but being able to shut down when your shift is over has been a magnificent and much needed change for me. We are also still just in training but I'm excited to get on the floor and start on the… Continue reading Stability
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
Stella in all her winter glory Finally a bit of snow to get excited about! It almost lasted until Christmas but at least I got a good fix before the warm weather came back. I'm that weird horse girl where yeah, ice and snow at the barn can be a complete pain in the butt… Continue reading A Quiet Christmas
First off, I really think we need to appreciate #equestrianlife tanlines for a moment... I think there was one year that I wore shorts right out of the gate and thought I'd never see my legs this fluorescent again. Well hello there pale skin!

Oh the weather outside is frightful. Actually, up until yesterday, it has been absolutely gorgeous! Even yesterday wasn't too bad minus the fact that it was so windy that a tractor-trailer rolled over on the Newport Bridge... Just a tad windy. Lots of power outages but luckily not at any of the houses that I'm… Continue reading And the World Turns…
Figured I would do a little blogging while I sip this cup of super hot tea. Anyone else out there tea drinkers? I go through waves where I drink a lot and I'm not quite sure if it helps me sleep or not but it sure doesn't hurt. And it's a little bit better for… Continue reading Keep Calm…
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. But there's something incredibly comforting knowing that even though there are scary monsters out there this time of year... he'd rather just sit… Continue reading And We’re Back!
When I pack up after a long week of overnights, I always mumble and grumble asking myself why. Why am I doing this? Why did I pick this? Will I ever sleep in my own bed again... Or hell... Will I ever have my own apartment at this point? But I turned around this time… Continue reading Holiday Countdown
