Insta life: It's the small things that matters

This is what's life lately. 
The normal, the usual and simple. 
This is how I prefer it to be, when my son is little and we are young.
Me and my cotton candy. I don't remember when was the last time I had one. I did not ate all of it though during my husband's block party at work. 
Have you had eggplant torta? It is a Filipino dish that is strongly influence by Spanish culture. I often cooked it at home. try it sometime. here's the recipe.
I like visiting small towns for some of them still has the old timey candy store and soda pop machine.
Hiking a trail in 1,250 is a lot easier coming down. Me, puffing and huffing coming up, no joke !
Just a typical 8 year old swinging on a tree branch.
Our dog Junior always camera ready. You call him and he looks and stares. 
I took this picture from our backyard with an odd shape cloud one early evening.
Spectacular view from the top of the lodge. Serene, quiet and priceless. My morrning coffee with this view is not bad at all.
The SIGN. Oh the trail is only 1,250 in length. Not a big deal. 
Street signs, why do you take pictures of them? Says my husband. No answer.
Downtown Dahlonega, GA. The town is small and quaint. An old gold mine town.
My son first time fishing. He catch a small one and he gets excited. After that it went downhill. The fish are too smart enough just to nibble on the worm bait and not fully bite it. 
Our bunny "Spartacus". He has gotten bigger and fatter. I told my son onetime that some of my make up brush are made of bunny hairs, he said that is terrible mom ! I felt like an idiot. What was I thinking?
Roasted mushrooms with crusty french bread to mop all the liquid goodness. So simple and yet so good. 
I hope you have a fantastic day. 
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo
Sam

    1. Thank you ladies. We had our bunny a few months already before we adopted our dog. At first Junior, were into the bunny. I think he wants to bite the poor bunny but now our dogs were used to him.

  21. Hi, Sam! So good to be able to see your pictures again and read your stories! I was away for some weeks, a very hectic time, but now I am back! Part of my family is Spanish, so I cook aubergines a lot, and eat many Spanish dishes since childhood. I loved the Torta picture! I also love cotton candy! And wow, your son is so sweet! Yeah, brushes from rabbits :( not a good idea, but it's all over the stores and I suppose I use them too... denisesplanet.com
