Wow~ what a year of change! Let me share the ways, in no particular order......
I made a pretty big relocation and career change~ but the reasons were more than fantastic!
One of my photographs made it into American Cowboy magazine~
I had more time in the saddle this past year than in the past years, both on My Boy, Loretta, and other ranch horses.
This lovely relative finally stopped riding other people's ponies and got her own golden beauty (pictured here with the borrowed AQHA gelding Jessie.)
I got to perform my first ear twitch~
Just kidding! I was just giving baby Howdy's ears a little rubbing a few hours after his birth!
I got to go on a nostalgic buggy ride pulled by a team of Percherons.
I started my own hobby jewelry business~ Rockin Heart Jewelry (and I love it!)
I got another horse, Miss Loretta!
I got to see all kinds of wildlife~
But most importantly, even though families sometimes change, I got to spend a lot of time with mine.....which is the most important thing I do!
Happy 80th Birthday to my pappy!
I hope your 2011 was wonderful, and here's to wishing you a lot of peace, love, sparkles, and dreams come true in 2012!!
