A Literary Update

Remember 5,000 years ago when I told you all that I was in the final editing phase with my first novel? I know – I barely remember it either. But, finally, I have some great news to share! I have, after what has felt like centuries, finished editing this wretched beast my first book! I[…]

An Equestrian Christmas

How was your Christmas? Mine was wonderful – lots of time with family and friends! Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t so great; it rained almost all day on Christmas Eve and Day. But at least it was rather warm, which I’ve been really into! Who needs a White Christmas? Not this Maryland Equestrian! Below are a[…]

Merry Christmas!

Breeder’s Cup – Saturday

Saturday was Classic day, and since we had the issue in the Bourbon Lounge the day before, we decided to arrive at Keeneland bright and early.

Breeder’s Cup – Friday

Breeder’s Cup on Friday proved to be rather interesting. Our group had purchased tickets both days for the Maker’s Mark Bourbon Lounge, which was located at the top of stretch, essentially. While the website made it very clear that there was no assigned seating, it did, however, make you think that there would still be[…]

For the Tree

If your Christmas tree is like mine, it is gradually being taken over by equestrian ornaments, which, of course, is totally natural and completely fine – haha! Every year I add one or two more, so now I have to have two trees (one is pretty small) in order to accommodate my growing collection. At[…]

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

For those with a gluten allergy like myself, the holidays can be rough. But there are some great GF recipes out there so you won’t feel like you’re missing out! My BFF made this gluten free pumpkin bread for me last year, (just before finding out she’s allergic too – I must be contagious!), and[…]
