This is one of my new neighbors.  We haven't formally met yet, but I am hoping we do soon. I am so smitten with him that I pop out of bed extra early just to walk over and see if he's hanging out with his friends. I am always secretly hoping I can catch him by himself so we can have some alone time.  Last night right before the sun was setting my husband announced that handsome was out, I grabbed my camera and walked  ran over. I was all twenty-one kinds of school girl giddy, the light was perfect and the corral was enveloped in a beautiful peachy glow. My new neighbor was being bashful and wouldn't come over for some shots, I had to do my best with these candids. I think I may implode from my good fortune, I know that we make our own luck, but I am feeling so lucky right now. What are the chances that we would move next door to a horse farm? And a pond and have I mentioned yet that to the East of our house is a forest--a forest?!  I'm trying to take this all in and I keep wondering why I didn't do this years ago, I really should have, but since I didn't I am going to take this all in every day and just revel in it. 

P.S. The moving truck finally arrived!

Yay moving truck!!

And if you don't see the owners for a while to be able to introduce yourself, you can put a note in their mailbox and let them know you want to meet Handsome!

I feel like a 13 year old Jill, I've always wanted to be able to be near horses and I am hoping I can learn to ride soon (they have an academy at the horse farm). Thank you everyone I am so happy the moving truck is here, everything is unpacked except my office--insert long sigh of uh-oh! I have a lot to deal with, yikes!

Glad to hear your stuff has arrived! Hope you are enjoying your new digs. We love it. If you venture over to Durham, email me. We can drink beers at Fullsteam.

I think Mr. Handsome might be playing hard to get - the horse, that is, not your husband... They often pretend they haven't noticed you, but if you wait for a while, they tend to graze themselves slowly in your general direction until they end up quite close.

Happy to hear that the moving truck arrived!!
