Where I belong

Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to go out to my old roommate’s house and ride horse!

I had texted her just to ask if I could come groom or clean stslls because I just needed some time with horses, riding was just icing on the cake.

Out was an absolutely beautiful night. We had rain earlier in the day and our Texas summer heat totally dissipated into a warm summer evening with a nice breeze.

My horse for the night was Gameboy, a very well trained barrel horse. My only instructions were to keep him calm and that was work for me. I haven’t been riding since Thanksgiving so I’m really out of practice. He was very forgiving and we had a nice ride.

The whole time I just kept thinking, this is where I belong: in the country, on a horse. I really miss riding but I’m being patient for the right timing and luckily, just when I need a little horse time, I get it. I’m very thankful for K  me come out and ride.

Yay for turkey day

Its the day after thanksgiving and all my in-laws are preparing our thanksgiving meal at the ranch. We at celebrating today because some family went to the last UT v. A&M football game. I volunteered to bring dessert, so check out my turkey cupcakes.

They are the reason we did not leave out house until 3 hours after the planned departure time. Ok, they weren’t the only reason but it did take an hour to decorate them.
Today I am thankful for my new family, a.k.a. my in-laws. God had blessed me with awesome in-laws who are generous and caring and of course, a little crazy (about UT football). Yesterday, when we arrived at the ranch, Uncle Bull told me I could go ride horse was soon as I was ready. Ah! I said hi to everyone, changed clothes and went to the barn. I rode for about two hours and it was awesome. While I was riding I realized it had been since last year at this time since I had been on a horse.  Praise the Lord, I have really missed riding and it is just what I needed after a busy week at work.
