Savoring the Summer


Happy Friday, lovelies! I'm looking forward to a wonderfully relaxing weekend after a week that lasted a lot longer than it should have. I fear that the summer is going to be over before I know it so I'm hoping to spend a lot of time outdoors savoring what's left of summer.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Any interesting plans you'd like to share?

Oh and next week I have a really great giveaway that I think you're all going to love! Can't wait to share all the details with you :)

Enjoy! xoxo

Enjoy your weekend. The images you collected are beautiful. Mischka (sp?) looks beautiful and posed in a place perfect for a lazy summer day?

S.Elisabeth said...

Oh these pictures are so gorgeous (Is that model in the first picture Mischa Barton looking healthy and happy, or is that my imagination?) They make me want to ship off to the Hamptons this instant!
My plans for the weekend aren't too exciting. Last day of work, dinner with my friend, and a visit from my cousins! Hope you're enjoying the last days of summer!

Sarah Klassen said...

Oh, I want to go swimming and take an afternoon off... sounds most ideal, doesn't it? I have spent a little time in my mother's garden -- one of my favorite places in the world -- it's quite unreal. But this, well, I could just leap right into your pictures! Mind if I do?
