One year.

Exactly a year ago today I got the phone call that the "truck has to cancel." A the time I thought it was the worst thing ever, and that all I wanted was for everything to be over. I'm so glad it snowed!

So, for a little fun. I saw this and had to chuckle!

I'm taking Ollie to his very first dressage show a week from today. I'm certain I'll have a few of those comments on my test... LOL! My personal goal is to enter on top of my horse and exit on top of my horse.
