Feeling Lovely

PhotobucketPhotobucketnullnull

Good Monday morning, lovelies! How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting?

Mine was everything I could ask for. After a hectic week J & I finally got to spend some quality time together. And I really couldn't have asked for anything else, especially at this time of year. Getting to steal away some quiet moments with the ones you love is truly the greatest gift of all.

Feeling totally content and loved so I'm planning to take this romantic state of mind into my week.

Hope you all have a lovely day!

xoxo

Dawn, the dreamiest images ever! So beautiful ... so you! Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Mine are still rather hectic with all of the shopping to be done, but I love it all and always find time to fit in a fire and a glass of wine! Happy Holidaying, darling!

Glad you had a lovely weekend! I really enjoyed mine - did not get a lot of sleep, but had so much fun! And one of my roommates got engaged, so that is always exciting!
Much love,
B

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I absolutely agree! I think we should focus more on doing that during the holidays - spending time with loved ones - and less on all the shopping which starts out really fun but then ends up being sooooo stressful!

Love the lingerie in the last shot - gorgeous.

Have a lovely lovely week!

Such dreamy rosy pics Dawn... Yup, so in the same boat as you, only I haven't quite managed to steal some precious time with the man all week yet! :( Crazy hectic.

It's so lovely to start the morning with this post (despite its Tuesday morning now where I am, but this is my start to the week in terms of work!) Mine was wonderful as well, and spent some quality time with my partner watching funny movies and eating lots of yummy food!!

Hello Dawn!

I have been meaning to stop by and say hello :) Such a pretty post... truly, visiting your blog is like having a bit of ladylike decadence in the day, if that makes sense.

A romantic state of mind is certainly a great one, and I hope that you have a splendid week...

Warmly,
Sarah
