In Utah the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) rounds up the wild horses from BLM land and adopts them out to locals. We went to see up close and my heart just melted. With shaggy coats that looked more like llama tuffs than what should be on a horse I wanted to bring one home with me. Watery big brown eyes looked right into my soul and resisted the hands of humans, instead searching for the wildness of the land they’d just been taken from. Imagine, a hundred years ago, when huge herds of these magnificent animals roamed all of our southwest.
What a fun day, I got to go to Heidi’s Farm and see all the animals. The horses were so big I wasn’t sure if I should feed them or not but Heidi told me just how to hold my hand and it was cool when they came and took the food from my fingers. I hope Mommy and Daddy take me back real soon. maybe I’ll get to feed the horses again! Brynnie Fitzpatrick April 2012

When family and friends came to visit in the early fall of 2008 we took them on a Day Trip to Cedar Breaks National Monument. What a gorgeous day. The sky was that intense desert blue with soft white puffy clouds bouncing around which set the backdrop for those fabulous red rock HooDoos. You just couldn't help but feeling good being in the beautiful outdoors. I loved this picture of Chrissy and I, she looks so put out. (Granted she hates having her picture taken but actually the sun was in our eyes as well so that says a lot for the expression, even though she has threatened to break my camera on occasion.)
I used a combo of kits from Cottage Arts, please check my gallery page here for a complete list.
Many years ago before Ed got sick we took a re-positioning cruise from New York City to the Virgin Islands. It was hurricane season, one of the worst, St Thomas was a mess. Even with swaying hall ways aboard the ship and water splashing out of the pools we had a fabulous time and memories I will always carry in my heart.
My one bit of wisdom to all of you 'thinking' about doing this or that, make a way to do it. Life changes in an instant, looking back you'll be glad you made the plans, found a way and carried through. Memories keep forever no matter how real life gets in the way.
I used the new World Travels collection from Cottage Arts to create my page. You can see the list of supplies in my Gallery photo here.
Paul had no children when we met and at this stage of our lives we neither wanted, nor were able to have any of our own, lol. But Grandchildren, that's another story. They just come along with the Grandma package and the young ones especially, don't know the bonds of blood only of love as is the case with Brynnie and her Papa. She just loves him because he is and he just loves her because she has stolen his heart.
