Wow that man makes me so happy..

Since my last "Lovely Man" update, so much has happened. At first we were spending every waking minute together, just hanging out and being with each other. Now we've been so busy, it's been more spread out but I like it that way because before we were attracting way too much attention.

He's been wanting to do something for my birthday (my big 21st) which was back in September. Well, guess what lovelies? He is taking me on vacation for 3 days, all expenses paid. My jaw dropped, and I was slightly irritated because I'm usually not okay with someone paying for everything

So we agreed that I can pay for the car rental, which I'm so much happier about.

I'm just not used to such lovely acts of compassion. He's even cooked for me, both dinner, breakfast, and lunch. Seriously he's one amazing guy!

So our trip happens on the 15th of this month :) I'm very excited. The first part is by ferry.... eee we're going to have some legit alone time. I'm very very very happy.

~~

On the horse front, have a huge beach ride planned tomorrow. 2 hours, praying the weather holds up! It's rather pricey but it's worth it. My good friend and an aquaintance are joining me.

Sky is doing super well... man he is learning so much! I absolutely cannot believe how lucky I am to be his person.

Here's an updated photo:



He looks so tiny but I assure you, he's a big big boy!

the tall lanky ones are deceptive. You cen never tell how tall they really are until you're standing next to them realizing what a feat of gymnastics its going to take to climb on their backs lol
Sky is looking gorgeous as always!


And sounds like things are going awesomely amazing with LM

Folks, I'm a dressage rider!

Today we worked on everything... transitions, complicated figures, lengthenings and square halts.

And I nailed everything.

Oh my word, I'm finally a dressage rider... my coach was so proud of me and I couldn't stop smiling!!!!

Kept contact and it was so soft and lovely.. she was nice and forward. I love that mare!!

The sad part is that I borrowed a camera but the batteries were flat... otherwise it would have been recorded

~~

Re the giant grey that I rode on the trail ride, I rode him again on the beach. A very lovely horse.. we had a nice canter and his trot is soooo silky that I could sit all day long.

Here's a size-reference of how ginormous he is...



And coming down the beach, excuse my facial expression and my chicken wing arms.. the reins were super short for that bridle so we were almost on the buckle the entire ride!

Wow I haven't updated this in a long time!

So a lot has happened since my last post. I no longer have a job, as I professionally resigned due to moving. Everything was fine until I got my review.. which honestly had me so upset because it's not what I deserve. However I have to accept it, and hope that my future employers will look at my work to see how hard working I am, and the quality and effort I put into my work.. instead of a piece of paper with a scale. Sigh..

Went on holiday with Lovely Man. He is such a character.. but we had a lot of fun and the national park we hiked in was absolutely gorgeous. I have never seen water so beautiful in my life. Here's a sneaky pic:



He even made me dinner one night, and it was super delicious. What a great guy, I didn't want to return home haha!

Went on another trip to a town called Taupo with my friend from highschool, who is now living in New Zealand! We intended to go the famous Tongariro Crossing, which is featured in Lord of the Rings regarding Mt. Doom. However the weather called for hail and severe thunderstorms so it didn't work out at all. We weren't too upset though because we got out on the lake and had a lifetime chance to drive a steamboat replica. It was very challenging but super fun! Here I am:



Excuse the angle, it was very cozy in there!

Went to see the awesome Maori Carvings, which aren't super old they were done in the last 80 or so years.


Then the past few days been on and off hanging out with Lovely Man. We hadn't talked or seen each other since the trip so it was all new again. We had a blast though, and lots of cuddling happened which just made me feel like a million bucks.

Had one last riding lesson.. I was hoping to go out again but without a car and with limited funds.. doesn't look possible :/

Now for the most recent news: I'm going home in less than 3 days. It just snuck up so fast! I'm feeling numb and very tired these days. At least I'm not stressed out like the week before, though!

Our first stop is old home, CO. Then we move onto Indiana, and I peace out to Louisiana (my final stop) on Christmas Day, to officially move out from my parents.

I am nervous, I am excited, I feel ready but will miss Lovely Man a lot. I'm ever so grateful and happy and completely set alight that I met him and that we have a great friendship. I realized I'm not ready for a full blown relationship at this crazy point in my life. It wouldn't be fair to juggle a boyfriend and the moving out process.. but I would not say no to him if he was up for it.

I got him a duo-gift, as a way of showing my appreciation for him, and how much he means to me. He liked them both, which makes me happy.

So onward with my adventure, living without my stuff or 'summer' clothes at the peak of hot weather here in New Zealand has been challenging.. this is day 5!

Nice...you be sure to update your blog from time to time, so we don't wonder what's happened to you.....

I'm excited for you too....its your life to start living.....hope you make it a good one and live without regret...

Seeing Sky on Christmas....there's your gift!

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
