A One Month Milestone

It's officially been just a few days past a month since I accepted my new job at a veterinary hospital, back in November. Its been difficult learning so many new things, but I've been learning. Driving home the other night I was thinking about some of the things that I have learned in the last month. Since I haven't been able to ride my horses hardly at all with the crappy weather, I thought I would share this with you.

Four things that I've learned in four weeks
1) When in doubt, ask.

2) And speaking of asking, it's okay to ask for help.

3) Listen closely

4) Trust yourself. You know more than you think.

I think that these are things that apply to everyday life as well as, take them into your life today.

As always,

Looking Back: A Year in Photographs

Can you believe it? Its actually been almost exactly a year since my last post...what a crazy, unthinkable, awful thing for me to have walked away from this blog for such a long time.

I was thinking about this blog today while cleaning my horses stalls, which is what made me come back to it to begin with. Scrolling through my hundreds of old posts, I realized something; there is history here. Not just mine, but the history of my horses, my life, my thoughts and my adventures. Its a timeline that I truly cherish.

Looking back through the hundreds of posts and photographs made me a little sad. Its like looking back through vacation pictures and wishing that you had spent more time appreciating the beach that you were sitting on, and yet all the while knowing that those moments are long gone and all that you have left of them are the memories, words and photographs that you used to document that time. I miss having no responsibilities really, living the "college" life that we all thought was so hard, until we hit the "real" world that actually was! The past year has been a whirl-wind, with my wedding and a few horse shows...trying to adjust to a new type of life being an adult and a wife!

There is far too much to document in words, therefore, sit back and enjoy as I sum up my year in photographs. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
