happy 22nd birthday to my true soulmate, giraffe, pizza enthusiast, beer guzzler, and the person I call bee! I don’t know where I’d be without you and our crazy schemes and adventures. you are truly one in a million Beatrice! thank god we sat next to each other almost two years ago in the dreadful class (that we then skipped until our final). you are my rock and my shoulder to cry on even 400 miles apart. so go drink a Malibu bay breeze at the bar for me tonight! love you and can’t wait to party with you in a couple months! 🍺😍🐝😜🍹😘

"throughout an equestrians life we come in contact with thousands of horses. All of them teach us something, most of them further our careers, and some, we keep around because they’re cute.
but in every equestrian’s life there is always that one horse. the one who we fight battles against. the one who we work so hard to break and teach them that we are in charge. but it’s always that horse who we struggle so hard with that work their way deep into our hearts.
the one horse who will always be a piece of us”
My mother tells me
that when I meet someone I like,
I have to ask them three questions:
1. what are you afraid of?
2. do you like dogs?
3. what do you do when it rains?
of those three, she says the first one is the most important.
“They gotta be scared of something, baby. Everybody is. If they aren’t afraid of anything, then they don’t believe in anything, either.”
I met you on a Sunday, right
one look and my heart fell into
my stomach like a trap door.
on our second date,
I asked you what you were afraid of.
“spiders, mostly. being alone. little children, like, the ones who just learned how to push a kid over on the playground. oh and space. holy shit, space.”
I asked you if you liked dogs.
“I have three.”
I asked you what you do when it rains.
“sleep, mostly. sometimes I sit at the window and watch the rain droplets race. I make a shelter out of plastic in my backyard for all the stray animals; leave them food and a place to sleep.”
he smiled like he knew.
like his mom told him the same
“how about you?”
I’m scared of everything.
of the hole in the o-zone layer,
of the lady next door who never
smiles at her dog,
and especially of all the secrets
the government must be breaking
it’s back trying to keep from us.
I love dogs so much, you have no idea.
I sleep when it rains.
I want to tell everyone I love them.
I want to find every stray animal and bring them home.
I want to wake up in your hair
and make you shitty coffee
and kiss your neck
and draw silly stick figures of us.
I never want to ask anyone else
2. I’m not much for cooking but there will always be coffee.
3. I’ll wear anything of yours with sleeves. I love when they’re long enough to wrap around my hands.
4. Sometimes the world is too harsh, too big. It’s hard to leave the house on days like those.
5. When I was sick as a kid my mom would run a bath for me and wash my hair. It was always so soothing. Maybe you could do that every once in a while.
6. I find it difficult to finish most things. My room is home to countless journals of incomplete thoughts.
7. I won’t love you any less in December. I think my heart just wasn’t meant for the cold.
8. I never truly know why I’m crying so don’t bother to ask, simply be there.
9. There’s whiskey in the medicine cabinet.
10. If things get terribly bad, please don’t give up. Get me in the car and drive to the sea. The waves beneath my toes will wake me up and I’ll be yours again.

I’ve never read something so true to my life and my soul.(via cyaneverjb)
Everyday, I am thankful for having this boy in my life. He keeps me strong. I never understood how an animal could change someone’s life. I never got how that could be possible, until I was blessed to have this horse in my life. I was not liked in middle school and high school. I was bullied to the point I never went to school. And when I did, I sat in the guidance office, because I was safe there. I have always loved horses. Something about them made me feel accepted and special. My dad got me Picasso to help me get my mind off of things and to get myself active in a sport outside of school. I latched onto him from the very beginning. You couldn’t separate us.. you still can’t. Picasso is very special to me. He is there when no one else is. We have our own language. He understands me. We have accomplished so much together.. so much more than I ever expected to accomplish. He is a once in a lifetime horse and I cherish every moment I spend with him. He has saved me in ways no one could ever understand. I can honestly say I would not be here if it weren’t for him. He is my gift from God. This horse will have my heart forever.
