Take Me Away...

It's been another hectic week - this is moving dangerously close to a lifestyle from what used to be an occasional busy to a flat out constant whirlwind. I'm just hanging on and enjoying it where and when I can. Le vroom! But today, my little bloggy friends, I just want to get away.... I'd love it if Poor Tired Husband would plan a great escape - one that was quiet, and slow... He could just lead me along meandering paths in the country on bikes... secret treasures and goodies stashed in his satchel...



Stop along the way just to run our bare feet through the soft and fragrant grasses... everything smells clean - the smell of sunshine - the distinct smell of summer.

A little snack, perhaps... and just a lot of doing nothing. Nothing at all. Watching clouds - just.. being.


Eventually making our way back home, where good friends, good food, great wine would all be waiting for me in my magical outdoor dining room. How fun is this space?



Light the pillars because all of the above are the perfect ingredients for a dinner going late into the night, and great stories to be told....
take me away, indeed.

Picnic via peddles: charming!!!!
I understand those blurry shirlwind weeks. Mine have been too much this & not enough that lately. Hopefully we all can just stare our ways into the photos.
