I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
I got a "tramp stamp" about ten years ago when I lived in Spokane, Washington. Being my first tattoo, I didn't really research artists or really plan out what I was getting. I got a basic black flower with some squiggly stuff around it. I always felt it was kind of one dimensional looking and boring. I finally got the courage to go through the pain again and I had a friend of mine design something that works with what I got to make it more "pretty." So my friend Amanda at Infinity Tattoo did it on Thursday last week. Man did it hurt! It burned and throbbed, but I still made my beach riding trip this past weekend. Not much could stop me from doing that....a goal of mine since I bought Maddy. It was a wonderful girls weekend, despite the "roll" in the sand Maddy took when we first hit the beach. I thought "Man...this sand is deep!! Whoa....she is going down!" And then she rolled...right on my awesome new Panasonic camera. Dead Panasonic. Live and learn:-) I loved my time there and couldn't ask for better friends to share it with. Kacy, Nora, Jeannette, Linda, and Carol...you guys rock. Thanks for having me. Does anyone know how to airbrush that love handle out of there?:-)
