My Handsome Champion

Kroger is such a handsome champion. So proud of this guy today.

Kroger and I had such a great show this weekend. We went into the SSHC Hunter Under Saddle Classic and ended up with the championship. I was so proud of him, it feels great to be part of a team again.

Dog days of summer

This little pup is having quite a nice summer. I’ve really enjoyed having the freedom during the day to take him to the park and I’m pretty sure he’s having fun splashing in the backyard everyday.

Sailing Again

The Meridian, our trusty vessel.

Sailing to the vineyard with @hilltop09 and her dad on this perfectly windy day.

A few weeks ago my friend Hillary and her dad were kind enough to take me sailing on their beautiful sailboat, the Meridian. A few years ago we cruised around the Boston Harbor on the boat but this was my first time in what I like to call, the open water. We left from the Mattapoisett Yacht Club and sailed to Martha’s Vineyard and back. We were out on the water for several hours and because of the great wind that day we were really cruising! I had such a fantastic time and Hillary and her dad are always so sweet and let me hold a rope so that I feel like I’m actually the one sailing. They’ve raced their boat to Bermuda before so I did my best to convince them that I’d be a great addition to that team. Think I may have a little more convincing to do!

So much printing has been happening lately. I’ve been lucky enough to work with so many talented illustrators and designers over the past few months. Each print has been a learning experience and I’ve loved getting to know the letterpress community.

Snowy Man

The best snow day activity. Huck didn't even pee on our snowman!

Snow days are best spent building snowmen. We build this one out front, Huck had the best time greeting all of the people that were walking by and catching snowballs that Ryan was throwing to him. The snowplow came through a few hours later and knocked the head off our creation but we got to enjoy him for a few hours at least.

My big, sweet Krogie

Big, sweet Krogie. He makes me better, always.

This is Krogie. The adorably gentle paint I’ve been taking lessons on for the past few months. He has managed to fill a hole that I’ve had in my heart and soul for the past six years. No horse will ever replace Yoshi but I’m so thankful that I have Krogie to help fill the void I’ve dealt with for so long. Every Saturday morning I leave the barn feeling fixed, and I owe that to this handsome giant.

Thankful

Using my Christmas present from @thegunrue to make some thank you cards. DIY stamps are the best.

Chris always wins the award for best gifts. They’re always thoughtful and fun and something you never realized you wanted but as soon as it’s yours you can’t imagine not having it. This year one of the things he got me was a stamp kit. It came with a double sided rubber stamp, rubber carving tools and plenty of templates. I decided that I wanted to use the stamp to make some thank you cards to send to everyone who was so generous to Ryan, myself and of course Huckleberry this holiday season. They were simple to make but I always think hand made cards mean the most.

A very (plaid) Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from our happy little family to yours. Ryan and I accidentally acquired matching shirts over the years and when I saw this dog coat in the matching plaid I knew it was meant to be. Christmas was extra special this year with our little Huckleberry in tow, hope you all had a wonderful holiday as well.
