Welcome to Fern Valley

Here in central Alberta prime farm country,my husband Martin and I work together raising beef cattle and Appaloosa horses. Fern valley appaloosas have long been known for their quality of temperament conformation and color.I have recently rediscovered a love of writing and have published 2 collections of poetry. "Telling Tails" and Tails Trails and Campfire stories" . I look forward to a future spreading my wings as an author and as a horse woman .

Out and about

Group Hug
So ,you may or may not have noticed that I was absent from bloggerland for a day or so.
I was on a little adventure!
Actual pictures to follow , but for now I will just tell you that my sister and I took a quick weekend trip to Seattle to visit family , and it was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!
My Aunt and Uncle there are the most gracious hosts ever , and our cousins Greg, Murray and Enid, along with their families, manage to treat us like gold every single time !Heather and I both noticed, and Greg commented  as well, that it doesn't seem to matter how long it is betweeen visits with these folks, we alway are able to pick up where we left off ! Just like we saw them yesterday . That is such a great feeling .We had a wonderful visit, and as nice as it is to come home, I almost  didn't want to leave !
So with the holiday season upon us , what better time to remember our families and reach out to those we don't see or hear from as often, and those who are close by as well. Reconnect with someone and remember all the wonderful reasons you want them in your life.
Love to all, stay warm and safe!

Welcome back! I realized that this was the first year in 12 years in which I could send out Christmas cards at my own pace, so I expanded my list of people I send to. I only wish I could have got the whole family together in time for a portrait, but maybe I can take portraits for next year's cards.

Sometimes those quick trips are just the pick-me-up a person needs.
