Dear Mother Nature,
I don't even remember the last day it DID NOT snow. I only have five more days before my very last spring break from college, which will also include my very first spring break vacation! I would like to just tell you that yes, everything looks serene and calming with a blanketing of white fluff, but after a while it is destroyed. Classes are not cancelled. Footprints in the snow begin the damage. But you see, after three weeks of living in this frozen tundra, snow-covered-everything is not so pretty. Piles of "snirt" are everywhere. This is a new buzzword for year 2010 describing the snow-and-black-dirt-mixture. Oh yeah, and the freezing cold wind-blowing-snow-sideways-thing needs to stop. Otherwise, I hope you can get out your spring flowers and warm sunshine for us in the near future.

Much appreciated,

Favorites of 2009

Okay, so here are a few photos that I have deemed as my favorites from 2009. It was a fantastic year, between my internship at the Virginia Horse Center over the summer that was more than a mere life experience, as well as transitioning from a Junior to a Senior at Virginia Tech this year. Yes, it really has been a doozy! You will notice that I certianly am an avid equestrian and try to find beauty in the outdoors everyday. ENJOY!

Flakey 2

Monday, February 8, 2010


Sometimes blondes are flakey, dry skin gets flakes, but the last two-weeks-of-life in Blacksburg... has been flakey. No, really. Loads of snowFLAKES have been falling and thus lingering about my little townhouse. Not only sledding but just not-so-sober walks home turns into a slippy-slidey drunken falling causing a trail of bruises down my thigh. But it is all in good fun, both the sledding and going out. So here are a few moments of snow-filled fun captured.
