Yes, yes, I know, I’m almost a week late (and a couple months overdue for an update). But better late than never, right? OK, I promise, that’s the only cliché I’m using in this post.
This will be relatively short; I mostly just wanted to reassure everyone that I haven’t forgotten about this. I have a boatload of pictures to sort through and share – I’ve gone positively shutter-happy these past couple of months. I’ve been told I should go into photography and I’m starting to think these folks might be on to something. I’ll post some of my favorite recent pics and let you be the judge of that.
In other news, for those who might not be aware, I finally started competing. December 4th was my first show jumping competition and while I didn’t win, I didn’t fall off or knock over any fences, which is already pretty good. And I had fun. 🙂
Sandrine was able to come spend Christmas with us, which was wonderful. 🙂 The two of us got to go on an all-day cross-country jumping outing with our riding school on the 30th – great way to end the year. Even if I did fall off twice and was incredibly sore for two days afterwards. 😛
As far as the new year is concerned, so far I don’t have too many plans aside from attending my best friend’s wedding in May. There’s also the youth conference in February, which is shaping up to be AMAZING (not that I’m really expecting any different). We’re also planning conferences in May and June (still in the early planning stages). I’m hoping to fit in a visit to Brussels somewhere in there as well; it’s been 9 years (!) since I’ve been back there.
That’s it for now; pictures to come soon!
