I'll be back soon.

It has been a crazy month! 

Nursing school has me completely booked.

I had a Psychology test today, a huge research paper due yesterday, clinical (1 1/2 hour away) all day tuesday, clinical all day monday in that same town, and... it goes on.

Josh and I are driving to the blue grass state this weekend to pick up at least 13 little pigs! We are getting 2 for him.. the rest are for others that are wanting pigs for their kids. I think it will be a fun little trip.

I have been trying to ride horses as much as I can. I have been trying out a new saddle that someone brought into my dad's business to trade him... 
What cha think?

Josh and I have been hanging out with my friend/neighbor Lexie and her boyfriend Matt. Riding horses, watching movies, and going to haunted houses. Oh yes. I love haunted houses! They are so not scary. ;)

My best friend came into town on the 14th/15th. I was SO excited to see her! She helped me out tremendously with Blair's 3rd Old McDonald birthday party. Josh did too! We loaded up SoBe, Donkey, and Opie, along with 2 baby goats from my neighbor! It was so much fun.

I still can't believe we got Opie on that trailer! He did so good!

We also went to the Georgia  National Fair. That is always fun!!! She also refreshed my trimming skills. There is so much that I forgot! Then we ended the weekend with a good horse ride! :) 

Love you Rhi!!!

Now I am going to bed. I have a date with a 1 year old in the morning at 7:45.
Let's see if I can remember how to babysit! ;)

October from day 1 has not been a good month.

My MeMa passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. I still can't imagine her being gone, because she has always been there. Always.

I loved her very, very much. Along with everyone else that had even laid eyes on her. She was such an amazing woman.

I walked my friend, Leslie, outside tonight after catching up on a television show. Revenge. If you haven't watched it, watch it. Well, only if you like that kind of thing.

When we walked outside, I heard pounding of hooves.

Lately, I have been having a few issues, so I told her goodbye and walked up to the horse pasture.

It's 1 AM, the moon is shining so that I can see everything clearly. There are tons of stars in the sky and my girls are right up by the house.

Those hooves were Sir Flint's. Who else?! I mean, did I really think different!

I unlatched the gate to my girls pasture and visited with SoBe and then Lizzie.

It was so very peaceful. No noise, no people, nothing but silence and my beautiful creatures.

I just thought... How blessed am I to have such a wonderful family, home, friends... and horses.

God can create some beautiful things. Moonlight, stars, and horses (all combined) is so beautiful.

Yeah, that may sound weird to you. But, that was the calmest I have felt in days. Just being able to lay my head on my horse's neck and look at the stars and just breathe...

Thank you, God, for creating such beautiful creatures. And thank you for giving me such an amazing family.
