Carolina Girls - The Interview II

The Blueridge Parkway by Simple Gifts
Welcome to Carolina Girls - the Interview II. It is fun to introduce to you one of my long time blogging friends, Wendy @ Simple Gifts. One thing distinct about Wendy is her amazing photography skills. She truly captures the beauty of her part of North Carolina. Thanks Wendy!

Where are you from?

I was born in Louisiana, but lived more years in Georgia. We moved to Western North Carolina about three years ago.

What is the name of your blog?
Simple Gifts

How did you name your blog?
I wanted to be intentional in noticing the gifts that God has blessed us with. Especially living in such a gorgeous part of the world; I definitely don't want to take all this beauty for granted.

How did you get into blogging?
My younger sister started one and I want to be just like her when I grow up. Our family is spread out far away from each other and this seemed like the easiest way to share pictures and anecdotes with them.

What do you wish to convey on your blog?
Hmmm. Nothing specific! I mostly post about places we go and things the kids are doing.

What is your favorite thing about your blog?
It is such a fun way to keep up with my sisters and other friends and family.

What is your favorite Ben N Jerry's Flavor?
Chunky Monkey

What is your favorite song/iTune right now?
I love many different types of music and tend to go through phases. Lately I've been listening to some old Johnny Cash.

Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts? ;)

Dunkin Donuts just for the donuts; I'm not much of a coffee drinker.

What is your favorite Carolina spot or thing to do? My favorite thing to do is to hike in the mountains. I like the hike from Mt. Mitchell to Mt. Craig; it's not that long and has some great views!

Thanks for submitting your interview information to Carolina Girls!
Carolina Mama

Hey, Carolina Mama! I can't get to your email! I click on it and a box comes up! Our computer has some sort of security blocker thingie on it...which I don't like but can do nothing about! If you wouldn't mind emailing me at and giving me your address, that would help out tremendously! THanks so much!

So nice to meet another Carolina Girl. I love the mountains too and hope to live their one day.
I have hiked Mt. Mitchell to Mt. Craig and it is beautiful. I also noticed the smell of Christmas trees was very strong on that hike. It sure helped me get through that hike!

Hi! I am new to this blog and it rocks. I have so much on my to do list, that I am afraid isn't going to get done now!
