Paris, Petals & Peace

nullnullnullnullnull

Good morning, sweets! Well here we are. A day before Friday. At last! I'm so wishing this week away.

I think it's this time of year but I'm really longing for a little break. I keep telling J that I need a vacation. Paris would do. Or an extra day off or something. Or even a weekend that I can stay at home for two days in row. I just need some peace. I'm yearning for something and even though the winter hasn't been bad, I'm just wishing it away. My eyes are desperate for prettiness and I can't wait for the flowers to start blooming again.

Luckily there's Valentine's Day next week to look forward to. And also a three day weekend the following weekend that I've refused make plans during. I secretly have been holding it aside for an impromptu vacation somewhere {hint, hint J ;)} I'm doubting that will happen but at least the three days will still be all ours.

Am I alone here? Or are you all yearning for something these?

Have a wonderfully happy Thursday, loves!

There's a feeling about Paris in the air today. But I would be happy with any escape in a sunny and warm place for now. Have a beautiful day, Dawn! xo

Oh Paris and pink, I love this! I think almost everyone has Paris on their minds these days and spring blossoms too. I know I do.

But now in my home it's coffee and freshly baked muffins, which is also wonderful ;-)

Happy Thursday! I am so ready for the weekend, a break, a vacation! Unfortunately I have to wait a bit. xoxo

Would love some time away or even just some sleep!! Paris would do, although they have a bit of snow and I am longing for some sun!! But, I wouldn't say no ;) I hope you get some peace and rest doll, I know it can be rough when you feel drained! Have a sweet day xoxo

You had me at Paris. Although there hasn't been a lot of snow this Winter I am sick of the cold. Find myself dreaming about tropical beaches, lazy river pools, and frozen concoctions. xo

Love the photos and that is one of my favorite colors of pink! So romantic! You should spend a couple nights at a bed and breakfast! I did that with my now fiance and it was heavenly! We hung out in our room the majority of the time playing cards and watching tv shows and drinking wine! Seriously perfect and refreshing!

pretty pink tulips said...

Dawn,
I so agree....I need some color in my life. Things look so drab outside. And my inside is a bit of a mess with our renovation.

We're heading west to go skiing next weekend and I'm hosting a bday party for my husband with 20 close friends. So, at least I have those distractions to get me through February!!

Love those pink tulips above!

Sunny & Star said...

I have been yearning for a break/vacation/getaway/practically anything for a very long time. Unfortunately it looks like it will be months before I have an opportunity for anything along those lines. Ahhh.. Paris. That sounds so perfect.

B. in the Know said...

You are not alone - totally yearning for a getaway. I actually just submitted a vacation request today for a getaway to NYC!
Much love,

Yes, I think everyone is itching for a vacation! It's the first time in a long time J and I don't have our "big vacation of the year" planned. Weekend getaways are nice though - hope you can squeeze one of those in!

Taj Acosta said...

I feel exactly the same about a vacay! I was driving this morning and saw the flyaway that goes to LAX and I wanted to pull over and just get on it! xx

Pink is such a lovely hue. Simply beautiful.

I am always dreaming about Paris. I just cancelled my trip to FL. I'm pretty sad about it, but that's the way it worked out.

I would LOVE to see some beautiful flowers, green grass and listen to the birds singing. Soon enough!

Happy Day to you!

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

OH I so agree with you! I just dream of long relaxing days together with Eric with absolutely nothing by open road/ocean/sky/countryside (any will do:) in our vision! Something that always fills my daydreams, ever since returning from our big adventures in Rome. These images are just gorgeous and leave me longing to be surrounded by beauty as well! ♥

i'm looking forward to valentine's day, too! and the 3 day weekend. february rocks ;)

Danielle said...

Hi Dawn,
I love this post and am totally with you!

I am yearning for warm air and spring flowers. We are in that long stretch after the holidays and before spring hits. Will we ever get there?

A weekend get-a-way sounds perfect about now (Paris would be a dream! :) but I'll settle for a realxing 3 day weekend at home.

Love your photos! I want that chair : )

Tulips are so delicate, romantic and feminine. Along with hydrangeas, they're my favourite.

A little vacay is just what I need too! It sounds amazing right now. I hope you get a little getaway soon :)
