Epic U.S. Trip - People

I don't like having my picture taken, I never have.  Maybe it's because I'm introverted, shy, and don't consider myself photogenic - at all.

However, on my Epic Trip, I decided to put that aside and try to get pictures of not just sights and people along the way, but ME with people along the way.  I didn't capture nearly everyone, but here are some of the people that I visited with during my travels.

(they are in no particular order, other than chronological along the trip's route)

My friend Jennifer Buxton

My Granny - we took a "selfie" 

My Dad.  We only just met a few years ago - long story

Grandma, Dad's mom

My brother, Michael

My daughter

Finally met Susan Bensema Young! (another quick "selfie")

My dressage instructor and friend, Judi.
She was in a horrible accident last year and I was afraid I'd never see her again.
I feel so fortunate to have been able to visit with her on this trip.

The next batch are out of order, since they were taken during the first stop of my trip.  I met a TON of people at BreyerWest.  I was trying not to fangirl too hardcore there, finally having a chance to meet so many hobby people that I've admired online for a long time.  I didn't get a chance to visit with some of them as much as I would have liked, but the people I did get to visit with were all awesome.

Erin Corbett - the one behind it all!

Simrat Khalsa - I actually knew her from my involvement in Spanish Mustangs
before I realized she was an artist!  We hadn't met in person before BW.

Maggie Bennett - she was so nice and helpful!

Crazy crew, haha - left to right: Me, Barrie, Suzanne, Tina, Debbie, Amanda.
We met up, hung out a little bit, and had a silly night at Denny's.
(Suzanne was my roommate at the Phoenix)
