I hope you found some inspiration, a few new ways to wrap up your holiday gifts in style with the 9-day Gift Wrap Extravaganza. And I hope all your lovely gifts are wrapped and waiting under a sparkly tree, all ready to bring smiles and warm feelings to all you chose to gift this year. Off we go to celebrate a family milestone..........a small break before our son starts his next chapter.
Where can three Canadians, very fair and pale ones, go where it is warmer but not hot? Somewhere different? Somewhere where we will step out of our normal routine? Where we can have some really good laughs? To do something our son has always wanted to try?
I am going to be a cowgirl, like a real cowgirl with cowboy boots, hat and all..............and this will be the part that gives my cowboys more than a few laughs. Everyone who knows me knows that I am not the most agile person, yet married to a natural athlete and the mother of a son who is quite physically gifted as well. So I will be the one who gets on a horse and goes around in a circle like the father in Modern Family in the dude ranch vacation episode...........I know that. But that doesn't mean I can't try. Again.
I have been on a horse before but each time it didn't go according to plan. Not the nice, cantered jaunt that was promised by men in plaid shirts. More of the "catch the horse" and "hold on" type of rides where cowboys have to rescue the one who got away yes, with me on it. So yes, I am skittish but determined to lasso this fear because I really like horses but if worse comes to worse I can always go to the spa or golf with the guys.............. I can't golf either but I am a surprisingly good putter. But I can try. Again.
Happy Trails...............and have the most wonderful holidays.
I wish you a most magical and celebratory week
with your family and friends.
You are the best readers of all.
One last addition to the Gift Wrap Extravaganza.
