this past weekend i turned 30. it wasn’t monumental or really anything special, but i did feel a shift. small, maybe, but a shift none the less. i feel a pull toward something greater. greater than myself. i don’t know what it is yet, but i’m excited to allow myself to just enjoy these coming years and really open my eyes to the beauty around me.
saturday we spent the morning at finley’s rodeo. i can’t think of a better way to spend my birthday weekend. watching my kids in their element is something special. rodeo has been so beneficial for finley. she used to be very timid in new situations and i would watch her second guess herself when it came to bravery.
recently she has been riding her horse, princess, all on her own. while princess is still a little stubborn in following along, finley is confident and never let’s that pony get the best of her. i hope she keeps that mentality, not just in her riding abilities, but in life.
finley very proudly said that mutton busting was her favorite part of today’s rodeo. ugh the pride. i never want her to feel she can’t do something. and watching her get on that sheep and hold on for the joy of the ride made me so proud.
here are a few more photos from the day.
i mean really – look at that face!
love and light
well deserved nap for the cowgirl
