It is really nice to be around someone/ be comfortable in the skin they're/you're in. Most of my horse friends, male and female are 5'8 and under. I guess that actaully goes for most of my friends. Except the teachers. For some reason those women are all right around my height. Makes it easier dealing with teens and tweens I think.
I had friends in Atlanta and loved the Jefferson, Tyler areas. We camp every spring somewhere along the Tx/La border. It is so beautiful in the piney woods.
