Just a southern gal from Georgia who has a real problem with baking. And by problem I mean, I can't help myself! :D I am married to the love of my life, he puts up with me so well! I am mother to the most adorable, yet tough little boy. And mother to a most beautiful full of attitude, little girl. I can't forget about our 4-legged family members! Our terrier Lucy, Our Great Dane Milo, our mutty mutt Ellie and our cats Abbey and Sammy! I LOVE to bake and I am trying to start up my own cupcakery. I love vintage anything! My blog started out as a blog for my cupcakes, now it has turned into an everyday into the life of "ME" blog. Life is not perfect and wonderful all the time, you will hear me gripe, bahahaha, it isn't all cupcakes. Just a heads up per say. :D Hope your reading experience is enjoyable!

Simple Pleasures Thursday-- Hosted by Blackberry Cottage

 Simple Pleasures

This is such a good time to stop and really think about the simple pleasures. And I have to agree with Susan @ Blackberry Cottage, this isn't a time for realizing what simple pleasures you have, but to realize what simple pleasures you enjoy doing. I enjoy baking and photography on down time, I feel I don't get to enjoy this much, what with life going on and all. I also enjoy my kids, not cleaning or cooking, but just being with my kids, doing nothing. And by nothing, of course I mean something, baking with them, swimming, walking, sometimes we just get in the car and drive through land just to enjoy classical music and to talk.

  We have a farm out in the "middle of nowhere" and I love it there! My family raises beef cattle, we have a barn, the "Car hop", a cabin, a 3 story house and all of it is on almost 400 acres. Let's not forget about the beach, docks, and 70 acre lake. This place is heaven to me, this is a place I feel, we do not get to enough. One weekend, or week, I would love to just go out there and teach my kids how to fish, take them out on a boat, walk through the pastures (watching out for huge cow patties), and check out the HUGE KFC bucket just sitting in the middle of one of our pastures. HA HA.

  I love to watch the otters come up and relax in the shade, I love to watch the cows graze, and the Bermuda grass in the Bermuda field sway. We used to pick muscadines and scupadines, grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, anything and everything. There was a creek that ran parallel with the mile long driveway through the woods, and my grandparents built a bridge and a tiny dock over it. Myself, my siblings and cousins would spend hours here, lying around talking, watching the fish and tadpoles. Ah..... But any who, back to reality, as they say. I only have one picture, the rest were put on cd's and removed from my computer, but the one that is down there is of me, my sister, and my cousins in the flowers in between the cabin and stalls.

  This is one of my simple pleasures. Did I mention baking?! :) What is/are your simple pleasure(s)?
