The last year of my life has been pretty peculiar and at times rough, so I am especially appreciative of the way the universe has chosen to align itself today, my 35th birthday. Up north we have Bromont with many of my favorite faces tackling the cross country course. At Belmont Park, we may see American Pharoah earn a place in history as the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years.

On the West Coast, I will wake up in a very different place from where I was 365 days ago. I will check scores from Bromont while I wait in the drive-thru lane at Starbucks for my coffee. I will pop over to the Hunter/Jumper show where my local tack-shop’s mobile trailer is spending the weekend, in order to treat myself to a new pair of tall boots.

Then, I will find my way home — not my house, not the place I sleep at night — but home. To the barn, with my friends and my horse. The sun will warm my skin in the morning light and I will reconnect with the inner peace I have been missing lately. Happy Birthday to me.
