All You Need Is Love

IMG_4704

For those that don’t follow my Instagram feed…I’m home!

I’m home and I’m all done clearing camera cards, backing up pictures to a couple of external hard-drives, hugging my 18 year old “kid” (Actually, I’m not done doing that), petting the dog, loving on my horse, unpacking, re-storing things into the storage unit and scratching my heading wondering how in the world I got back here – nine weeks, four days and over 9963 miles later.

It didn’t feel like that many miles.

Is it weird that I love to drive – a lot?

I love the changing scenery. I love the constant photographic opportunities.  I love early mornings out on the road…just me and a few semi’s and the occasional car.  I love the quiet.

Speaking of love…

My niece, my husband and a great big beautiful horse.  Love.

This niece of mine is maybe, quite possibly more horse crazy than I was at her age.

She loves horses.  And this guy?  He pretty much loves a good neck scratching.

He also loves a gentle petting from a sweet little girl.

I’m really looking forward to sharing the love of horses on a regular basis with her in the very near future!

Peace and love,
