Pining For Paris


Happy Tuesday, darlings! Things are kind of slow this week. Everyone seems to be on vacation and the summer is really winding down. It has me thinking of quick little escapes. How bout an extended weekend in Paris. Leisurely strolls, a little shopping as well as quaint cafes & beautiful markets. It's exactly what my soul is craving these days.

How about you all? Where are you craving to go today?

Hope you all have a fabulous morning and be sure to check back later on today for the winner of the Betsey Johnson Bow Pendant Giveaway.

Ooooh, I've done that once, an extended weekend in Paris, I was 23 I think. It was the fall and hence the weather was not so wonderful, but what a great little getaway anyway! Thanks for reminding me of that this morning :-)
