Provencial Escape

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, loves! And happy mid week! I love that it's already Wednesday. I'll be back at the beach before I know it. I'll take weeks like this every week, please. :)

Since I can't be away YET, I'll go ahead and daydream a little bit today. You know me...I'm quite the dreamer. And ever since my father mentioned that he will be taking a little trip to Provence in a few months I can't help but get the thought out of my head. He's renting a villa and everything. Doing it the proper way. Wonder if he'd mind if I snuck in his suitcase...

Where are you daydreaming about being today?

Enjoy the day, sweets!

xoxo

A BRIT GREEK said...

All these images are seducing me into booking a trip to the S.France for some wine tasting and some al fresco lunching action along with relaxing with some great reads!

Oh, btw - just finished Me before You by JoJo Moyes - OMG, absolutely fantastic read (700 odd 5 star reviews in UK can't be bad?! via amazon)

That little lunch looks perfect and what a nice Dad to rent a Villa!

I'll be in Paris first part of July - cant wait to shop and eat! I need to find shoes for my trip that are cute but that I can walk in. Wedges? I need to stop dreaming and get back to work ;)

I would also love to sneak into that suitcase. My in-laws plan on doing a beach house rental later in the year, so I'm daydreaming about that.

Candidly, I'd love to be on a secluded island sipping a mojito and reading a book from my "stack" of books next to my lounge chair.

fashionsensitive said...

Dawn, these photos are so nice! After living in the big city for a lot of years, the chillness of the country is exactly what I need! ;)

Inner-Outer Beauty said...

Of cooourse you must go with your dad to Provence, at least for a couple of days. It´s magical. And if you like wine and cheese (which I do:) you won´t regret it. I seem to daydream at least the same amount as you do... XO Caroline

Ann On and On... said...

I'm dreaming of that wine and cheese...there's nothing like a night of great food and friends.
