I am sewing (more), I am riding (more), I am meeting friends for dinner (more), I am taking classes or attending workshops (more), I am volunteering (more)...

I've been busier than usual this month with horse training, dressage lessons, trail rides, pattern stash contest and HOA business. Here is a photo essay of my month-enjoy!
