:: What's Happening ::

:: I meant to have this post up yesterday, but the day did not allow. I was at Superstore three times yesterday, so that kinda explains the kind of day I had! ::

:: I'm currently in the midst of reading the first in a fabulous series called: The Courtship of Nellie Fisher by Beverly Lewis. I love her writing {as I'm sure I've stated before} --- This book as it's the start of a series has a lot of explaining and character placing but I love it, and it sucks that I haven't had time to sit down and read it in the last couple days! ::

:: I love the simple life that they lead, I seriously think I was born into the wrong period. I would have loved to be living on a farm, harvesting the fields, canning, going to quilting bees -- that's my kind of life! That's what I would love to live like...well with a bit of technology! I just love the look of a hand written envelope coming in the mail, there is something so tangible about real penmanship and the thought that goes into a letter or note ::

:: There is a little white plantation house with a little red barn on a little plot of land in the city next to ours...I dream of one day owning it or something just like it! ::

:: In other news while I was at Superstore, I decided to smell some of their fragrances {specifically Burberry
fragrances} and I fell fell fell in love with Burberry "Brit" -- I love it, it's a beautifully well designed fragrance. Maybe Paul will get the hint and pick me up a bottle of it for our Anniversary!?!? Wouldn't that be nice, it's the perfect casual warm fragrance! ::

:: Today I'm finishing up a special order wedding cake for my cousin Rheanne, she's getting married tomorrow to her high school sweetheart ::

:: Hope y'all have a great Friday and an awesome long weekend, the last of the Summer. I'm sad to see it go but I'm also of course looking forward to my favorite time of year; Fall! ::

:: We'll be around here this weekend as we have the wedding, so I'm sure I'll be on here updating what we have been up to over the Summer ::

:: Happy Friday Y'all! ::

I love this type of book! I am a huge fan of Tracy Peterson, because she always writes about the time periods I love. I, like you, think I was born in the wrong time period. I enjoy the simple life and wish I could have lived in the days of "Little House on the Praire" or "Anne of Green Gables". Not to mention the fabulous dresses and HATS!! *grin*

Enjoy your weekend!

OOHhh that book looks really good... I'm going to have to check it out at my local christian bookstore here... maybe I'll hint around to some of my family for a Christmas gift!! They are ALWAYS asking me what I would like!!

Have a wonderful weekend, I enjoy reading your blog. And I have to admitt... I would have LOVED to live way back in a more simplier time!

Blessings ;)

Thanks for the book recommendation! I'm always looking for something new to read. I read a series about an Amish family a couple months ago and really enjoyed it! Don't know if I'd like going without certain things (ie - flushing toilet and electricity!) but I respect the culture and appreciate much about it.

Funny that Crystal already commented, that perfume reminds me of her! :)

LOVE that house!! Wouldn't that be a dream come true?

Have an awesome time at Rheana's wedding! Post some pics of the cake - I'm sure it's lovely!
