The Good Life

Happy mid-week, lovelies! I'm smack dab in the middle of a hectic week fantasizing about a life of leisure. You know, days of louging by a pool sipping delicious beverages, all while looking extra glam of course. These thoughts aren't new, by the way. They resurface from time to time. Especially during especially busy weeks like now.

Thinking ahead to our long vacation at the end of the month. It can't come soon enough.

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!

xoxo

Dawn - Hopefully your hectic week wraps up soon and I what a treat to have a vacation to look forward to. There's something about knowing that something good is just around the corner that makes everything easier. I hope you are well. I always enjoy stopping by when I can to view your images and hear your energetic words. Thank you once again. :)

Oooh! that jug of fruit juice (or sangria!) looks so inviting.
Where have you decided to go in the end? Do tell ;-)

{The Perfect Palette} said...

when I used to work in corporate america I used to have A LOT of these dreams. I used to dream that I could get paid to be a resort critic. You know, sitting by pool, drinking pretty drinks, going to their spas. And then of course writing a review. Sounds amazing, right?
