I have been so grateful to be back on a horse that I didn’t want to complain that all I was doing was walking, trotting and loping .... I have been dying to test what my three year old has learned the last six months. So, I thought I would take a leap of faith and see what my “new” hip could tolerate. Success! I can counter canter, change leads, spins and even managed a baby stop! Very thrilled and grateful to be back at it. I’m almost ready for a reining pattern. (Here’s hoping I didn’t break my horse’s buttons.) 😁 #pepper #maythefourthbwhizyou
This. Happened. Today. 😊 After more than 150 days, back in the saddle again. Words can not even explain how great this felt. Was so good!!!! Big thanks to @lisalevavan for the Pilates classes and pushing me (still have a ways to go) and so grateful for @laura.eberhardt for helping me today. . . . . #goodforthesoul #backinthesaddleagain #dressedlikeahobo #betweentheears #gentlesoul
Words cannot often describe my experience of watching live productions as dancers and actors express emotion and stories with movement and voice. Last night’s production from @balletsjazzdemontreal in Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me was visually stunning, moody and graceful. Another recent favourite was @atp_live #thevirgintrial - smart ... witty ... and charming! Take a moment and experience all that #yyc theatre and dance has to offer. You won’t regret it. Thanks to two lovely ladies @jessica.meagan and @starizon_images for the delightful evenings!
Shameless selfie! Just because - smelling fresh like a daisy and super soft from a bath and so darn cute! 🐾
Awe, it’s so sweet Leroy is supervising me icing my hip. And by “supervising” I mean silently mocking my limited mobility and inability to shoosh him off the bed. 🐾
Taking a minute to enjoy the beauty of today. Beyond thankful for the tribe of family, friends (and strangers) who have made the last 48 hours fantastic, despite my circumstances. Touched by the support and love received. Grateful for being strong prior to my accident to help me walk so soon after surgery. I am so lucky, today is a great day. 💕 . . . #grateful #enjoythelittlethings #backinthesaddlesoon
