Heather Gardner and Tara Tyler are hosting the Thrill of It All blogfest! They want people to "share a big thrill" today to celebrate their books Maguire's Corner and Pop Travel. (Both of which are filled with thrills.) :)
I had a hard time deciding between two different thrills, so I'm not going to. ;) I'll just talk a little bit about both of them.
I've been showing horses for about twenty years, with a few years off to have kids. But I'm back in the saddle this year and it's been so much fun! I know my husband thinks I just sit there while the horse does all the work, but he's wrong.
This picture is a few years old, but that's me on a great mare named Paris to London. I actually wrote a YA novella set at the Arabian Youth Nationals horse show and named the horse after her. :)
The other thrill in my life is coaching speech. (I know, totally nerdy.) But watching my kids do well after seeing how hard they work is a huge thrill. This year we sent three kids to State. They cried and hugged each other and me and the other coach. It's awesome.
How about you? What thrills are in your life?
