Cruising, Part 1

Despite my earlier stance that cruises are terrible and I’ll never go on another one, I ended up on another cruise. Except I justify this by saying that it was (mostly) paid for, and Dave’s entire family was going on it. It was a family reunion of sorts. We were booked on the largest cruise […]

Day of the Dead Gala

Well, it’s about time I posted about this! It took place November 4th… that was quite a while ago. Almost feels like years ago at this point… But I am trying to play catch up here, so here we are. This is the super amazing bloggers Shelby and D’Arcy, and additionally my lovely, wonderful friend […]

Creating a Scene at the Embassy of Italy

On Friday night, Dave, my friend K, and I went to the Embassy of Italy in DC for a Venetian Ball. Finally, an excuse to wear a ball gown! It was a fun, and interesting night. I’ll get to the most interesting part in a minute though… We had VIP tickets, which entitled us to arrive […]

Gentle Harvest Delayed Open Party

We drove into our little town on Saturday to drop our truck off to be fixed (finally, omg!). For a town that consists of one street, it was surprisingly active, and we soon discovered the source: A new market had (sort of) opened. But, this is not just any market. This market is owned by […]

Playing Photographer

Every year, my friend and I get photos done. It’s our fall tradition. This year, it was extra special because she is pregnant. We planned for a maternity shoot for her. Unfortunately, our usual photographer had a last minute scheduling conflict. He’s a really good photographer and a really good guy, so we were sad. But […]

The Life and Death of Dogs

A few weeks ago, we took Puddin on her last car ride. Her cries had become more frequent, and most nights, she’d cry all night. She shuffled from the bedroom to her dog bed out in the hall every 30 minutes in an attempt to get comfortable. She’d scream out in pain as she collapsed on […]

I have a case of the summertime blues. My motivation level is almost zero. It’s always weird to me that as riders and horse lovers we love these animals and riding more than anything, but sometimes, don’t feel inclined to ride. At all. Some, who may not be feeling this way at the moment, might […]

Maryland Renaissance Festival

It’s that time of year again – Time for me to set aside my horse-ing so we can do something Dave enjoys. The Maryland Renaissance Festival is the second largest in the country. It just started this last weekend and runs for the next 8 weekends. This past weekend had the theme of “Children’s Weekend”, but […]

I Got a Haircut

Warning: This post contains nothing related to horses, and is completely comprised of selfies of my hair. Breaking News: I got a haircut. This may not seem like news, but I hate going to salons because it always takes forever, so I rarely get my hair cut. Maybe once a year. Yes, I do often […]
