1. We are the only car on the road, driving for miles through the mountains on winding country roads.
2. Huge slabs of natural rock, dark brown and mossy, were built into the bottom of the hill running along the highway. Natural elements in landscaping, my preference whenever possible.
3. One of the horses was very naughty today and had to be broken of a dangerous, bad habit. This meant performing the same movement over and over until the horse complied. It also meant holding onto a 1500 pound animal and pitting will against will. Now I know why God made Audrey a strong-willed child. She's amazing.
4. The band strikes up the first foot-tapping song and we have one hundred people commence the dance. Everyone is smiling.
