Though I should be posting about my trip to Europe in chronological order, I’m actually beginning at the end with a photo shoot at my friend’s house. She owns a wonderful farm, writes fabulous stories, and is living her dream. Check out her blog. I met my dear friend at Camp Anna Behrens. She was a counselor in training and I was a camper. Soon after, she was a counselor and I was the one in training. We shared several summers together that turned into a life long friendship. She was gracious enough to spend a few hours with me last week, teaching me to ride side saddle and taking photos of me dressed in my (sister’s) Napoleonic dress, riding her horse (the best horse ever). Below are the best photos from the bunch she took. I couldn’t decide on “old timey color,” black and white or sepia….so they are all mixed.

It was a huge challenge to keep the horse still and smile.
