I'm the Corporate Face You Love to Hate

Our Neighbors Think We're Crazy
It's no secret we bought a house in a place we thought we would never buy a house. But circumstances didn't really give us another option. And at the end of the day, I truly believe we were pointed in this direction. Not necessarily for our own mental healt...

So Cute Sunday: June 8, 2014
Everybody loves babies. It's a fact.  Today's baby was a surprise to its owners (I don't own any horses so I'm not trying to disguise myself)...and is a bizarre cross between a Morgan mare and a Miniature stud.  Not sure how that worked but Mother Nature su...

This Is Why Nobody Leaves Home
I'm an adventurer. If I had a living quarters horse trailer I would just travel the country and float. But even I am half tempted to just say forget about it and move back home right now. I moved from Virginia to Wyoming for college...and that definitely wa...

If you have ever tried to capture pictures of piglets, especially with a cell phone, then you know how incredibly difficult it can be. Those suckers move FAST! But I managed to catch this blue-butt standing relatively still...I sure do love the colored pigs...
