My gorgeous friend Christina is Queen of Cupcakes (her side line business)  and because she is gorgeous and she loves me she baked me these beautiful red velvet cupcakes, decorated in pink icing, soft edible glitter and edible filigree butterflies that she also made.

Butterflies because in another life I am known as Miss Flutters!!!

So yummy, the Princess and I devoured them....

not all at once!

Flowers from a friend!

I received these beautiful flowers today from my friend Miranda and her 8 year old Princess.

Beautiful vibrant colours, just what the winter castle needs to brighten it up and just what I need!

Thank you so much Miranda and Princess!!!

Simple Pleasures

I now understand what it means to have a life changing experience!

As I fell from the ladder I knew there was a possiblity I could die or if not I could be permanently disabled...

the medical people and people who have visited my house and have seen the broken ladder and the height I fell from all believe it is a miracle that I only have two broken ribs and bruising!

I know it is a miracle...

a life changing miracle for me!

I am so grateful for my broken ribs and my big black and blue bruises because it has given me an appreciation of life that I didn't have before and a stronger desire to "do" my plans, to not sweat the small stuff, to be grateful and to enjoy simple pleasures.

My simple pleasure today is these sweet, sweet smelling Freesias picked from the castle gardens!

Enjoy the simple pleasures in your day and...
