What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to give thanks. I'm so incredibly lucky to be doing what I love. Mythic Landing Events has grown so much this year. Sometimes I have to take a step back and just be thankful for all the opportunities that have come my way. I'm a bit reluctant to start naming names, so bear with me as I ramble for a bit.
In no particular order ...
BTYC: Jenn, Nicki, Sue, Suzannah ... you ladies are truly the best. Jenn for living with me and putting up with the chaos that is my life. Nicki for being my sounding board when I hit a road block with one of my horses. Sue for stepping up and not blinking an eye with my many requests, from doling out prizes to whispering to my favorite appaloosa. Suzannah for the constant editing and press releases, MLE looks good because of you.
Katie, Claire, Kim and the rest of the ABBF crew ... I'm so so so thankful that I found ABBF and found you ladies. From hacks out to the meadow, to bareback racing in the indoor, to vaulting on fat ponies, you all make it fun.
Kelley, Pat, Danny and Ray ... I'll say it again, I'm so so so thankful for finding ABBF. I can't imagine being anywhere else. Special thanks for welcoming Lissell to the farm. Without a doubt, this is the best place for her and me. Kelley ... thanks for dealing with my constant nuttiness and teaching me how to ride. And thanks for not thinking I'm crazy for putting an 18yo broodmare back to work.
Dr. Scullin, Carter, Doug and Mike ... thanks for keeping my horses in tip top shape.
Brett ... you may be far, but you're always there for a quick chat. Plus I get to live vicariously through you and your Olympic dreams.
Lynn ... Thanks for having faith in MLE and working tirelessly for my dream. The office wouldn't function without you.
Pam/Judie ... Thanks for taking care of the finances. I wouldn't be able to do it without you.
Holly ... Thanks for having faith in me and trusting me with your horse. Moosetracks has come so far this year, and while I sometimes do get frustrated with him, know that I do see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Stephan and Susan ... Thank you for traveling each month for clinics. Here's to a successful 2011 clinic series!
MLE Clients ... You all are the best! I'm so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by people who have the same vision as me. Thanks for trusting me and for your continued faith in myself and MLE.
Mom, Dad, Katherine ... thanks for always being there. It's not every day that your daughter/sister decides to quit her job and walk out on a limb with a new company. Thanks for not thinking I'm crazy and supporting me throughout.
Scott ... Who knew?!
Lissell ... thankyouthankyouthankyou.
I'm sure I've forgotten someone, so please forgive me. It's late and I'm running on little sleep.
