My Top Ten favorite fall memories

1. Meeting my husband – My husband’s cousin brought a wild horse and wanted me to tame it for them. So we set out with a horsebox and a single cab to go collect this crazy horse. But I was a rebellious tomboy that didn’t want anything to do with a city boy. So I chose to ride in the horsebox and avoid him. The next thing I knew he was climbing into the horsebox with me and ensured that I started noticing him. Today we have been together for eighteen years, and married nine years.

2. Our Fist date – After the horsebox thing, my husband with my brother’s aid forced me to go to a party. I went, all blooming mad of course, and slept over at his cousin’s girlfriend. About 4 am the next morning we were dragged from the bed, forced into clothes and off we went. We ended up next to a road to barbeque early in the chilling morning. I had no coat on and that’s when the city boy decided to make his move and warm me up.

3. The birth of my two sons – both my sons were born in fall. I have some amazing memories of their first fall in this world.

4. Writing my first novel – I wrote my first novel of Kasadya in fall 2011, most of the time inside due to my new born son. But I will never forget how many times I deleted a scene and rewrote it. I must have written ten books when I was finally done and satisfied.

5. Cape Town visit – My husband took me to meet his parents in Cape Town; we had a great time touring CT and seeing where he grew up.

6. Horseback riding – We would saddle up early in the morning and then set off for the whole day of just riding. Some days we would reach the house just as the sun set. I have some of the most amazing memories of these times.

7. Playing on the farm – When I was very young my cousin and I would venture out on the farm and play until we were hungry enough to go back for some food. We would go on amazing adventures exploring the farm.

8. My first cattle drive – it was so amazing driving hundreds of cattle from on farm to the next. I had a few freaking scary moments, but it was amazing.

9. Breaking my first horse – I remember falling into a pile of leaves and I was covered from head to toe, and the damn horse went running away. When I finally caught him, I just decided that today I will ride you. At the end of the day he was calm, relaxed and not throwing me off.

10. Reading outside – I have hundreds of these memories. I would go outside, find a tree and just get lost in another world. Sometimes I would be so lost that someone had to come and get me.

And that’s my top ten fall memories :)
