Tinder Godmother

Tinder Godmother

I blamed the two glasses of wine but the truth is I had been pondering about diving into the dark world that is Tinder, so I didn’t protest when my friend took my phone and started installing the app. “Now you can only choose one horse photo. Which is your favorite?” I pointed to my favorite show picture, us jumping a sizable coop where my equitation looks baller. She frowned. “No, that won’t be impressive to anyone else. Here… I like…

Dependably Crazy

I survived October! I’ve never been so happy to meet November before, with a lot of tough dates , memories and feelings behind me for a while. This month was tougher than most, but one of the things that has surprised me throughout this grieving process is the extreme up and down of it all. I’ve jokingly diagnosed myself with grief induced bipolar disorder. That’s not to make light of a serious mental disorder, but more of the best way to…

Film & TV for the Emotionally Unstable

Film & TV for the Emotionally Unstable

I’ve always been someone that gets pretty sucked into the stories I watch in movies and tv shows. In college, I went on a Law & Order SVU kick that lasted several months and ended up in me having not one but two trench coats because I wanted to be Olivia Benson. Olivia Benson is bad ass. We should all want to be her at least a little bit. At its best, I love this digital media because of the amazing stories and intense…

While the basics are still the same, there are some minor yet important changes you are going to need to adhere to these days. The blunt,…

The Voice – Part II

The Voice – Part II

Last time I wrote about the voice, I wrote about how I have attempted to squash the feelings of self doubt when it comes to my weight and riding. I’ve worked hard to keep those negative feelings at bay when it comes to riding, but life outside of the barn is an entirely different story. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like being suddenly abruptly single for the first time in almost a decade and then looking at yourself in…

What Getting My !@#$ Together Right Now Looks Like

What Getting My !@#$ Together Right Now Looks Like

It’s been two and half months since Tim died. I bet you’re thinking, “So nice that life is settling down for Lauren right now and she has a chance to heal emotionally.” NOPE. Now I’m no newbie to the internet, and rule #1 is never write about legal details until the dust has settled and everything is complete. So I won’t be updating you on my rawr status, but rest assured an epic post of “Wow those were some shenanigans” will…

An Object in Motion

An Object in Motion

Last week was not my week. We won’t get into the crux of it, but on Friday night I was so looking forward to the weekend when we’d have sunshine and lots of barn time!  Plus, super awesome blog friend Tracy was coming to Austin for the weekend and we had fun plans to hang out.  We did hang out, and it was super fun but I’m going to save the fun post for tomorrow and today share my stupidity with y’all. First, on Friday…
