spring break

The kids are out of school this week for spring break.  It’s sooooo nice to have a breath from the early bird school schedule, although the kiddos still have track, ballet, and horseback riding all week.  We have a big horse show coming up!!  We’re taking a different approach to spring break  this year – staying at home to chill and almost completely detaching from strict schedules and deadlines.


I’ve already reorganized several rooms in our home, ahhhh it feels so good to have the time to focus on a project!  If I get any styling going on after all the organizing, I will share a few pics.  But you know I’m slower than a sloth in that department.  Meanwhile, diggin these white lamps for one of our bedrooms.

Yesterday I enjoyed a mega luxury – a long lunch with my good friend, Julie.  I hardly ever go out to lunch – it’s usually woof down whatever I can find on the go or eat standing up at the kitchen counter.  Julie and I are both so busy with our brood day-to-day that having to time to actually sit down, eat in relaxed state, and talk with no interruptions was like winning the lottery for us.  I think our lunch was something crazy like three hours??  I wore a light blue button down with a white collar, ripped skinnies, and this new trench from gap.  Here was my outfit inspiration.


After lunch, I scooped up a kid and drove her 86 miles for a lesson where our horse is in training.  Savez and I posed for a foot selfie before I switched into my barn boots.  Our legs look strangely distorted in this shot.


And I may or may not have flirted with this super tall, handsome, sweet, and talented Hanoverian.  Is it obvious I have a major crush on him?  Don’t tell Savez.  Look how dirty his back is, ha ha.  He had just enjoyed a fresh roll in the dirt.


I leave you with a few images that make me think of spring.  If I could design the perfect spring break, it would include relaxation, horses, nature, beauty, and travel.


Biking to a picnic in a pretty meadow would be delightful.


Love this little bicycle basket.

I would wear whites and linen for our picnic.


Of course horses and lots of riding would be a major part of the picture.  I call dibs on this mound of statuesque perfection!


Maybe a little sailboat ride with my nautical husband and our gang.   To balance out all that riding.  


I’m taking a week off to recharge and plan to return after March 28th.  Cheers to downtime!

    So glad you checked in. Love Spring Break and one of my favorites was when we stayed at home. No rush to go and no rush in the return. The good part being most people were out of town so we really enjoyed just our family. Hoping all this and more for you.
