  • April is World Autism Awareness and Acceptance month.  We are a bit over 4 years into our own journey with #autism and I’m far from an expert, because frankly, autism is complicated.  Ask any ‘autism parent’ what autism looks like for them and you will get a different response.  It can be hilarious, and heartbreaking, and challenging, and amazing all at once. We have been immensely lucky to have some absolutely fabulous people come into our lives on this journey - wonderful new friends, and countless professionals and organizations who have offered their help and patience and knowledge and who have made more difference than they know. This piece is being donated to FSTRA (Free Spirit Therapeutic Riding Association) for their auction at the annual Night in White fundraiser.  They help individuals with any number of challenges (not just autism) and we have seen first hand the effect their programs can have. Our thanks to them 1000 times over! ▫️▫️▫️ #FSTRA #freespirittherapeuticridingassociation #maritimemacrame #horseshoemacrame #autism #worldautismawarenessmonth #horseshoe #nightinwhite #nightinwhitegala

  • The past 12 weeks with the crew at FSTRA, a couple special new friends and one of my new BFFs, Ginger, have been incredible 🦄. Giving back and sharing the joy horses bring to my life with others offers a return like no other.  Being a part of something WAY bigger than I could have ever imagined and playing a teeny, tiny part in our horsey community has blessed my heart each and every week.  Man I’m going to miss it.  #fstra #GINGERthesuperhero #GingersX2 #weneedtoupourselfiegame

  • On my actual birthday  I spent most of the day in bed feeling terrible. So  Monday was a do-over.  I am greeted with the ever, unconditional love of Silver and Talullah. I got to open my card and continue to enjoy my lovely banner that my amazingly thoughtful and generous sister Rachel had set up while I was away (while she took fabulous care of my kitties). Then I spent an amazing day with my dear friend Ashley sat FSTRA, working at mucking out stalls (honestly so therapeutic I couldn't believe it!!) then watching her ride (it never ceases to amaze, the progress between weeks!), then going together to one of my favourite places: Miner's Marsh, to see the goslings and ducklings.  I got to cap off the day with a suprise dinner out at Troy with my best friend Danni, complete with a decorated table, balloons, and sparkler in a cheesecake!

Thank you to all the special people in my life. Remember, it's not about a certain "day"... choose to have these special days way more than once a year!
