a little bit country

This weekend Ty and I escaped the city to finally take our horseback riding date (previously rained out)...
We left Nashville early on Saturday morning, and an hour and a half later, we arrived at Calico Junction Mule Ranch. The air felt different... and it smelled amazing. Just like Fall.
This couldn't have been a better weekend for a foliage loving freak like me... jaw. on. the. ground.
Me and my girl Silver. Even though Silver is a blondie, we have a lot in common - we both enjoy stopping often for snacks, and have a bit of an ornery streak. But she kicks... I don't do that.
Hearing hooves crunching Fall leaves, and splashing through creeks made my heart happy
Oh and the day ended with me convincing a llama and Ty that said llama would be a great pet, and would fit in our backseat
If you are ever looking for a little adventure around Middle Tennessee, I highly recommend horseback riding trips at Calico Junction... which supports their Therapeutic Riding Center that helps at risk youths, and veterans. Not only are the owners the nicest, but the property is ridiculously gorgeous!

How was your weekend? Any run ins with llamas? Any Halloween celebrations (more on mine later this week!)
