Horses, Huskies, and Husbands: A Family Photo Break
Over Rolex weekend, Allison and her husband visited us in DC. We'd arranged the day specifically to have family portraits taken. Other than our wedding, my husband and I have never had professional photos done of the two of us. Plus, we have no good photos ...

A Day of Awards: PVDA Day 2
Sunday of PVDA Spring started off better than Saturday, despite worse rain. To begin, I didn't have work, so I could get to the show grounds earlier. Then, my mother (visiting from Indiana to see my show, despite the rain and being deathly allergic to horse...
