It may have been a little ambitious of me to jump right back into writing.  I'm hoping that by making this a public attempt, it will be a successful one.  That said, here are two more things that I'm thankful for, which will leave me a measley five days behind.  Pshh.  I've got this.
I am beyond thankful for horses; I would not be where I am or who I am without them.  They have taught me so much about patience, determination, and work ethic.  I could go on and on about how these animals have been responsible for some of the best times of my life, but for the sake of brevity, I will simply say this: if you are a horse person, you get it, and if you are not, you never will.
A once in a lifetime pony.

Let's just pretend that rail is still in the cup.
Coming in at number 5 on my list of thanks is my car.  Really, all of my cars except that awful Plymouth Neon (totally NOT the same as a Dodge), but even he was good for some ridiculous stories.  Currently I drive a 2006 Kia Spectra, my first car not to be covered in stickers or retain a name.  I had Nellie (Dodge Neon), Helena (Saturn SL2), Dallas (Plymouth Neon), and Webster (Ford Taurus wagon), but I could never find the perfect moniker for this little girl.  My car has driven me through snow that some trucks would balk at; she has toted grain bags, shavings bags, hay bales, and tack trunks; and most importantly, she has taken me and my mom cross country twice.  I guess you could say that we rode through the desert in a car with no name.

Me and my little beast in Yellowstone National Park


  1. When I get a vehicle, let's go to Yellowstone... Downside, I may send you home alone to get my pony haha.

  2. Done! I would love to go back. We need to find out when it's moose season, though. I want so badly to make friends with a moose.
