Hello! I am home and had a wonderful time in Savannah, as always! I thought I would share some photos with you.
A soon as I arrived I was met by a gorgeous flowering tree in my parents yard! It was almost unreal how soft white and pink it was as I pulled in the drive. Next, I was stampeded by my moms sweet Golden Retriever Penny, my sisters Dotson Tito, my brothers' Boxer Laila (who is staying with my parents for a short time), and the very large Great Dane Roscoe (who is actually my sisters boyfriends' dog and also staying with my parents while he and my sister were out of town)! In the background of the dog crowd was Martha, my parents cat that they have had for so so long! Look at her feet, they are Hemingway cat toes. Her mother, so appropriately named Mittens, was actually found on the side of the road at a horse show when she was a little kitten. I love those toes!

On Saturday I went searching for some pretty things. I found moss drapped trees, azaleas of every color, purple wisteria and hungry bees.

And that afternoon I watched my mom show at a small local show down the street. She is riding Dressage, training level tests. I am so proud of her! She has been so dedicated to me and my sister as we were growing up with horses. She hauled us off to horse shoows all over the southeast and even to Oklahoma a couple of times. Now she is having some fun on the horses. This is Godiva, my sweet (and when I say sweet I mean very stubborn but loving) horse that I rode. She and I worked hard and went to Nationals where we made it to the Top Ten! But don't let that fool you, she is a tough ride and my mom is working hard! She walked away with a first place and 2 seconds! She has a big show this weekend and I wish her so much luck!

And I loved my horse fix!Have a lovely Day! ♥Emma

I can't believe how absolutely beautiful it is there. Gah, it's still all crummy and gray in Ohio! I adore that last horse photo.

Sounds like you had an absolutely lovely time - I hadn't thought about my Hemingway paw kitty Max in years - she was the sweetest!!

Oh, my! Sounds like a beautiful and blissful vacation. So pretty! Aw, this makes me feel like setting up a hammock in the woods and just living there. :)

Beautiful! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! But...I've missed you! Your blog is my daily source of beauty and you've been MISSING for a few days; I wasn't sure what to do with myself!

I'm selfishly glad your back. :)

♥ ya!
