The Great NC Christmas Adventure

The Great NC Christmas Adventure

As you may have noticed, I’ve been out of town for about a week.  We packed my car full of Christmas presents, three dogs, and barely fit ourselves on the 2400 mile round trip from Texas to North Carolina.  We drove straight through on the way there (20.5 hours) which was pretty miserable.  After visiting family and friends in North Carolina for the week, we started the drive back and stopped in Jackson, MS to stay with Tim’s family for…

Eq Blogger Secret Santa Gift!

Eq Blogger Secret Santa Gift!

I had to do two posts today, becuase I got my Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange secret santa gift!  Yippieee!! Thank you soooo much to Adventures with Shyloh for these amazing gifts! They arrived all wrapped and purdiful, but like the present hungry christmas-monger I am, I ripped them all open with glee before remembering to take a picture.  You can view the aftermath first. She was very accommodating of my snooty hunter requests 🙂  I now have a beautiful wood…

Christmas Card Exchange

Christmas Card Exchange

I’ve been doing Christmas cards of my equine family for years. Horses in Santa hats are always cute, but even if there are no Santa hats involved I like to have at least one nice photo and a milestone to celebrate the furry loved ones in my life that year.   This year is no different, and I’d like to share my Christmas card tradition with you readers! If you’d like to receive a holiday card from yours truly, please…

My Favorite Christmas Ornaments

My Favorite Christmas Ornaments

Being the shamateur photographer that I am, my mantra is the deeper the depth of field… the nicer the photograph 🙂  So I pulled out my 1.8 lens and took some photos of some of my favorite ornaments on the Christmas tree to share with you today. If you look back through any of the posts about my dog, you’ve no doubt seen my Springer Spaniel, Eliot.  He’s my baby, and springers in general are such a beautiful breed –…
