May has been a month of simple pleasures on The Thousand Acre Woods. Nothing over the top, out of this world to share, but remarkably fulfilling none the less! It has been a month of great awareness of the love and support I have within Caked Vintage. I want to start by saying thank you for that... your letters, tweets, emails, and comments have been more than my heart can process at times. I even had to make a little room through a few joyful tears! So thank you all, so very much, for everything. Now onto my not so eventful month's events in review!
My parents have started back up their spring/summer horse events. At these events riders come from all over sunny California to jump on their horses and chase cattle around for hours on end. I don't quite understand the thrill of it but I understand the rules therefore deeming myself to the title of event "caller". The "caller's" responsibilities are similar to that of a sports referee but instead of a whistle you get a horn... I like my horn... maybe a little too much. I have no problem buzzing riders in the name of unnecessary BS when it's source is not a cows behind! Why should the riders get to have all the fun?
We also celebrated Caked's one year anniversary! We had no intention on treating ourselves to any celebratory adventures but coincidentally that is exactly what it turned into! We needed to run to the store to pick up a couple staple items (cat food) and decided we should treat ourselves to a little thrifting. I found so many wonderful treasures including the acorn salt and pepper shakers and the"adventurer" print skirt shown above. Christopher Robin scored two shirts, one vintage even, for a cool four dollars! Feeling so empowered by our budget bargains we decided to head up to the lake to hit our favorite burger joint. Our original thought was to sit at the bar, as we normally do, and enjoy our food with a tasty beverage. The restaurant also holds a market where a pack of Pina Colada coolers beckoned for my attention. We decided to take our meal to the sand. We ended up enjoying our burgers, pina coladas, and bare feet on the lake shore beneath the setting sun. A simple celebration I wouldn't trade for anything!
How do you like to celebrate your milestones?
Love & Lollies...
