About me

Industry Agriculture
Occupation horse trainer
Location Maryland, United States
Introduction I'm not even sure how to describe myself anymore. In my past life I'd of said "horse trainer" w/out missing a beat. Now that I'm a late in life mommy to two small children, 3 & 6 yrs, and wife/partner to a conractor/builder/farmer, renovating a 150+y.o. brick farmhouse with a 115 acres full o critters n crops, it doesn't seem that simple! I'm blessed to have travelled abroad quite a bit in my youth, and maybe for that reason, am now the biggest homebody/nester. This farm is the result of a LOT of hard work and the answer to many prayers - most days, life here IS my vacation! I'm chock full of ideas n projects for myself and our farm. I love all things old, organic or original. A little bit country and a little bit rock n roll. Maybe more accurately a little bit preppy n plaid and little bit gypsy n junky! Clearly, a talentless and wanna be artist who'll settle for fun DIY projects and crafting w/my kiddies while nurturing all that grows here on our farm and trying to share it with others more removed from country life.
