We drank a toast to time

Happiest Christmas wishes to all my blogger friends! I miss you all bunches! A sweet comment appeared in my inbox this morning from Ranch Girl at Ranch Girl Diaries (formerly and forever to me, Pony Girl) and an old familiar twinge of blogging love washed over me and I thought I might take a stab at a quick post.

I hope you all had a fantastic 2014 filled with much horsey joy! I can happily report life at Honeysuckle Faire remained blissfully similar to other years. Any horseperson knows that this isn't a bad thing at all! Calm, quiet days filled with no drama and no illness and no injuries are a horseperson's dream and we got that! Yay!

Pie, Sovey, and little Foggy are just as round and silly and content as they were when I left the blogging world. They spoiled me with great rides all year. I don't think I rode every single day but very close. Below, Foggy takes me out through the fields on a very windy day in November. We are in Florida again this year for Christmas so I am without them briefly and my heart aches. The time I spend with them each day is still the glue that holds my days together. Their breath is the air I live to breathe. Their space in my life is the answer "YES" to the everlasting Why. I am thankful beyond words that these three horses are in my life.

Love to you all during this holiday season and all through the year! Please don't forget to let me know if you are on Instagram so I can follow all your horsey adventures. My Instagram account is julietteober for horse stories and more from Honeysuckle Faire and also non-horsey life with Brian and Maizie and little Noodlebug at Nutmeg Cottage. 


  1. Best wishes to you and yours at this holiday season! So glad to hear that all is well with you and your three lovely boys.

  2. So nice to hear from you Juliette! Glad you continue to enjoy horsey-bliss, and life is treating you all well. Merry Christmas & wishes for a wonderful 2015! I prefer blogs and don't Instagram as much, but I'll look you up (awborealis). Take care!!

  3. Great to hear from you and also hear that you and your family are doing well.

    Merry Christas to all!

  4. Yay! *dancing a happy little Christmas jig!*

    SO good to hear all is well for the Honeysuckle Faire(s). Think of you often. Perhaps we'll connect on instagram in 2015.

    ♡♡♡ Good health and abundant happiness to you and yours Juliette ♡♡♡

  5. Merry Christmas, Juliette! Glad to hear all is well with you and the horses. Maybe I'll start up on Instagram someday soon.

  6. Thank you Kate, aurora, Grey Horse Matters, Calm, Forward, Straight, and lmel for your comments! Seeing your names again and reading your kind words felt like coming home. What wonderful friends you all are and how lucky I feel to have "met" this great community of horsepeople.

  7. Hello Juliette! So glad I checked the blog today! Happy to hear that you are all well. I was wondering if you'd consider making me another custom horse poster in the coming months? I may be getting a new horse!

    1. Hi equestrian_librarian!
      What exciting news!!! Yes, of course I can make a poster for your new sweetie. Just email me ( when you are ready.

  8. Love the love letter on horse back! KK

  9. Oh how did I miss this post and little shout-out? Thank you soooooo much! ;-) I'm so glad we've "reconnected" and I believe timing is everything, I don't think I was ready to really "read" your message on horses before, but now I am so excited you are here (well, somewhere out there in cyberspace, as you have found and noticed with me, IG can be quite addicting! Anyhoo I'm going to work on re-reading your blog now from beginning to end, as well as your Found In The Fog blog. Hope your new year is off to a great start to you and yours! xo


Thanks for taking the time to visit Honeysuckle Faire!
