Hello to my Beautiful Friends!
There are just 2 weeks left of the Winter Equestrian Festival for 2019. We’ve just concluded week 10, WEEK 10!!!?
Winter up North is lasting too long after an extremely snowy few months, while here in Florida I imagine many would like to extend their time. Well, maybe not everyone – I did hear plenty of people around the horse show stabling talking about being “over it”. Depending on your role and your schedule, this can be an exhausting 12 + weeks. I can venture to guess that it would feel much longer for people who are on the show grounds 100% of the time versus having a home base nearby.
When we are gone, I miss home in Minnesota and all of my family and friends (whom I will be so happy to see! Love you all). At the same time, I’ll also be very sad about leaving Florida. I’ve made some really wonderful friends this winter whom I will miss dearly. I feel really fortunate about that. Each year I feel more and more connected to seasonal life here. I will miss many things when it is time to head back up north. The surroundings and experiences here are incomparable.
We have friends visiting us this week, so it will be busy here during our remaining time.
