If you want to see magic - all you need to do is add horses. These ladies can vouch for that. The beautiful, white Unicorn has been feeling her age and ailments (I can relate) so we watched her from afar, but handsome Magnum was up for the task of razzle-dazzling us with his cheeky charm. He's amazing. He's really beautiful. And Erin + Trevor (his people) are also amazing. I blazed into their farm through the eye of a storm with five wet ladies under five, two french bulldogs and a sweet nanny to help me wrangle the fairy-cloud of excitement. Craziness. Erin + Trevor are the most gracious and giving hosts I have ever have ever met. There are no words to describe how filled my heart was afterwards because they are HEART FILLERS.
PS. Horses are magical. Little girls TOTALLY get that.
She was smitten. She sported a sweet grin from morning until night (thanks Magnum!). Typically, she's our live wire. She tends to be a little unpredictable. NOT YESTERDAY. She was soaking in that big horse and the magical unicorn like we were in a sacred space. She was calm + focussed. She was listening + intent. I always wondered how I would know what passions or gifts our girls would have. How would I know how to nurture them? Push them? I think this is something Penn (more than any of the other girls) would really love to pursue.
Oh, those dirty dogs...
Normie rolled around in the "mud" the entire time. (I love this shot because Jack the Golden is saying 'dude, that is NOT MUD!') Frank was solidly convinced HE WAS A HORSE. I don't have any photos of him sitting under the horses, running through their hooves, or addressing them nose-to-nose because I was too busy screaming at him and having mini heart attacks envisioning him getting punted like the little pigskin frenchie he is. Whew!
As usual: MOST. MAGICAL. DAY. EVER. Thank you Magnum (Erin + Trevor, you guys, too!)
Today: I am crafting something that will hopefully lead to painting something. Coffee please!
