the beginning of the end of my life.

h’okay, so, it’s been a while since i’ve updated, and, as usual, a lot has happened.
we closed on the house. we are officially now homeowners (well, erik’s a homeowner. i’m a homeowner-dater).
the last day of classes is this friday, the 8th.
horse show at ashford this saturday, the 9th.
lebow graduation reception wednesday, june 13.
graduation is next saturday, june 16.
moving to atlanta, june 23.

what else…
been riding this fantastic darling little 4-year-old large-pony-small-horse appaloosa thing named Freddie Mercury who i am absolutely in love with lately.
i jumped cross country for the very first time last week and it was way more fun than i expected.
there’s this really awesome danger element because the jumps are solid (tree trunks, boulders, etc.) so you have to be extra careful to jump correctly, otherwise you stand the chance of getting *very* hurt. plus you’re running through long grass and fields and stuff, so you never can be too sure of the footing.
so i had tons of f
un, did a bunch of jumps and it was amaaaazing.
i’m definitely going to want to try this again 😀
today’s lesson was a lot of fun. we did lots of jumping, combinations and then a big course of about 9 jumps.
freddie only started jumping about three months ago supposedly so he’s still a little unsure of himself, but he’s got a heart of gold and tries so hard to please. he’s wonderful. what an angel…
spent the past few days in new york with erik for his five year columbia reunion.
thursday night we went to this really hip rooftop bar on 27th and 5th called 230fifth.
friday morning we had a tour of the butler library. we snuck off at one point into the stacks and, well, you can probably guess 😉 after we took a nap on one of the lawns because we were tired, then got changed into fancy clothes to go to dinner and then to casino night where we won tons of awesome non-class-of-2002 columbia stuff.
saturday was the dean’s day brunch followed by some columbia stuff and a classical music concert which was really good. after that was a wine tasting that got me nice and drunk (thanks columbia!) and a dinner where i sobered up and then a starlight cocktail party with champagne and dancing and other niceities.
sunday morning we had breakfast with his mom and hit the road back to philly so he could fly back to atlanta that afternoon.
it was cool getting to meet some of
his old friends, old roommates, etc.
plus it was really great getting to “say goodbye” to nyc… *sad*
k, that’s it for now!
