Good morning, lovelies! Hope your week is going splendidly. I'm still playing catch up after vacation, no surprise. It always takes a while for me to get back in the grove. I'm not worried though. It'll all come in time. I still have that vacation ease about me.

And in the meantime I'm thoroughly enjoying the gorgeous weather and beauty of spring that has popped up around here since I've been gone. Looking out my window I see a gorgeous canopy of green taking over the parks. And I also came back to peonies at my flower market. I'm over the moon since I've been waiting all year. I purchased a bunch for home and a bunch for work. I want to see those beauties wherever I happen to be. The trees are all green and flowers are in bloom and I'm as happy as can be :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Oh and I'm also am on over at Hello, Spledor today sharing one of my favorite NYC spots on the Splendid List. Stop by and check it out. If you're ever in NYC be sure to stop by this place as well as the other fabulous places included on the list!




xoxo

Dear Dawn,

Sometimes it takes a while to get out of the holiday mode.
So glad that the weather is beautiful there and the peonies are in the florist shops.

Wishing you a beautiful week

Glad to hear you're happy! Spring is my favourite time of the year, but it's slowly getting too warm outside where I am. Fresh flowers really make a difference at home, they make things instantly more beautiful!

Rachel @ Little Bits of Lovely said...

So jealous of your spring weather! It is getting more freezing by the day here! Enjoy it my dear xx

TimbarikaDoll said...

cant wait for the first peonies to start coming up in the shops!!

classiq said...

I hope I can find some beautiful peonies to take home today. I'm glad to hear you have such a lovely spring weather. It's just crazy here: it was all sunny and warm in the morning after a few terrible days and now it's begun to rain again out of the blue. I'm afraid my suede shues I ventured to wear today will suffer if it doesn't stop by the time I finish work. xoxo Ada

Debby said...

Oh, I'm so glad you are back because I NEED my dose of pretty along w/ my morning cup of coffee. Peonies are so gorgeous, I think I need a big bunch too. No surprise you are playing catch up after vacation.... coming home always bites the big one. xo
