The author of this blog, I am a reader who loves horses. I tend to be loyal, deep thinking, and calm. I take no nonsense from everyone and am imminently practical. I am a planner. I live by lists. I try to stay organized in a house where kid-made chaos reigns. I love to search for things on the internet, mostly things to buy. My favorite place to be is on the back of a horse. I started lessons when I was 13 and rode through college. I even trained my own horse in college (got an A in that class) and was a horseback riding instructor in another life. Sadly, since the kids were born, I haven’t had much time to ride. Instead of riding, I read mountains of books (when I can!) and write in this blog. I have an unspoken goal to write every single day for a year.
