How could it improve? Well, I'm not sure it could. Despite the fact that I still work several jobs, am going to be riding 4 horses a day, and be a full time student, I'm happy. I know I won't ever be able to live without horses in my life, and the more time I spend in North Carolina the more I know that this is where I want to be long term. I know I may have to leave for a few years after I graduate, but NC is where I want to be. The people are nicer, the weather is better (despite a hurricane and earthquake in the past week), and life is slower.
If someone had told me 4 years ago that this is where I would be right now I would have laughed. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunities to meet the people I've met, prove myself to those around me, travel to some of the most incredible places in the world, and love every minute of it.
Here are some pictures of the newest addition, Grady.
