Pretty in Provence


Happy Thursday darlings! Dreaming of being whisked away to the South of France for a divine & leisurely getaway. Relaxing days outdoors surrounded by beautiful gardens, eating the freshest cuisines and sipping the finest of wines. Pure bliss that is heaven for the soul. Oh I can just smell the lavender now. Can you?

Hope you all have a fabulous day! Only one more to go until the weekend! :)

Provence truly does look lovely. After reading so many of Peter Mayle's books - I too want to pack up my life and move there permanently. That would be a dream. And the lavender, oh that would be lovely to be surrounded by. Have a beautiful Thursday yourself. =)
