White Stallion.

Recently I experienced a couple of days of absolute magic.

A weekend filled with unforgettable moments spend in the company of two special people -
my very dear friend Elizabeth, my greatest confidant and sister from another mother - and the man that makes my heart soar like an eagle. A man like no other, one that has changed my world around...

In my perception, happiness is measured by experiences that leave us wanting more. Time etched in our memory, creating recollections that will last a life time.

The weekend included a memorable walk near my home, on a beautiful evening, so very defined by the white light of Scandinavian summer nights and the vigor of the northern air.
As we walked towards the sunset, taking in the allure of the moment, our faces were caressed by vernal wind gusts and our eyes mesmerized by the sight of dramatic skies and breathtaking views...

At one point we made an enchanting encounter with a stunning White Stallion. This beautiful animal, full of stamina and vitality left an everlasting impression upon all of us.
A symbolic representation of purity, grace, endurance, loyalty, romance and chivalry - it in no uncertain terms illustrates so very eloquently the current state of my mind and the contents of my life...

(All the photographs in this post are taken by me, by the man that makes me endlessly happy and by my dear friend Elizabeth. Please click each image for a larger view.)

Yes, it was a magical weekend and the walk was fantastic despite our wet feet, haha. We were truly sisters of non-silence. Enjoy your long weekend with mr. and I hope that we soon meet again.

Beautiful creature! So big! I once fell off a horse in my uncle's farm; I, since then, have a found new respect for them. Plus, because of my back, I can't go up one anyways.
thanks for sharing!

sounds like a magical time for sure, zuzana - full of love and light and magic - and what better symbolism that the magnificent creature there - i mean, he is majestic - and speaks to my heart - in another life, perhaps i was a horse - such an affinity for these magnificent animals - and he is just beyond words - he reminds me of the gypsy horses seen here - thanks so much for sharing such a wonderland weekend! ;)

Sounds like a scene right out of a lovely romantic musical. The stallion looks brilliant! I was just hoping that you would show us the picture of that special man. And Elizabeth, she is a very perceptive and lovely person. I miss her visits on my blog.

Joy always, dear Zuzana,
Susan

What a magnificent horse!!! There is a herd of gorgeous draft horses (Belgians) at the farm where my son married almost two years ago. I pass them several times a week--the land is up for sale and I do hate the encroaching development that will eventually force the move of these horses. Some days, cars are stopped by the side of the road and people take their children up to pet these friendly, curious horses. When we first visited the farm, one of the horses actually stuck his massive head in the window of the car to check us out!
Have a lovely weekend, Zuzana--I'm so glad to hear you are so happy!

"happiness is measured by experiences that leave us wanting more" That is most accurate description of happiness I've ever read, dear Zuzana.
I also think that when the soul is happy, we find beauty everywhere and the simplest and most ordinary landscape is revealed as a work of art in our eyes. When we look with love, we see love.
Beautiful post

Amanda said...

The photos of this white stallion are so beautiful it is like they are magical and might just be something I am imagining in a dream...was it for real? He is so magnificent he seems like an illusion!♥

I have encountered many horses in my life and have even been and avid rider in my younger years, but I have never seen such a majestic animal before. There was something very regal and enchanting about him, like it arrived from a fairy tale just to let me know that I was living one right now…
Sharing this magical experience with two of my favourite people in the whole world made it absolutely unforgettable. And I guess it comes across also from the images they captured of me…

Thank you my friends for your kind words and for allowing me to share this precious moment in time with all of you…

Xoxo
